A highly regarded expert for his fluent knowledge and vision in the ever-changing world of orthopedics, joint replacement, and sports medicine, Dr. Pardino relies on the input of his patients to ensure mutual efficacy, with the belief that "an accurate diagnosis is the result of listening to the patient." Dr. Pardino's dynamic passion, communication skills, cutting-edge techniques and rapid-recovery results make him a sought-after surgeon, particularly with knee, hip and shoulder. "Perhaps the most important part of an accurate diagnosis," he explains, summarizing his personal mission statement, "is taking the time to know and listen to the patient, and hear their story."

He's a great and caring physician. He did a great job to my left knee, I was able to return to my normal daily living after 12 weeks, I took an extra 4 weeks to do extra physical therapy to strengthen my left knee since I play golf.
