Redondo Beach, CA |
I would avoid Dr. Stephan Nuccion. A surgery he did permanently damaged my young daughters growth plate. He also attached an allograft in an incorrect location. My poor kid had to have another surgery and the damage done to her growth plate may affect her for the rest of her life. On top of that, when I confronted Nuccion with what I had discovered, he made up a story that was not in the operation report. He also kept saying everything was going to be fine when other Dctrs said the opposite.

While Dr. Nuccion is a capable surgeon, he does not spend adequate time with the patients. The post-op visits are brief and, in my opinion, useless. He has office hours in Hermosa Beach, so far all but one of my scheduled visits have been cancelled at that office and rescheduled for the Torrance office. Driving 40 or minutes each direction, spending at least 30 minutes in the waiting room, and seeing the doctor for 5 minutes, is an irritating experience.

Within 5 years I have had extremely successful Knee and Shoulder surgeries. Dr Nuccion, his office staff and everyone at Torrance memorial were fantastic start to finish. I HIGHLY recommend DR Nuccion to anyone dealing with new or lingering knee/shoulder injuries.
