Dr. Russo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Russo "Orthopedic surgery runs in my family. My father was an orthopedic surgeon and my son Matthew Russo, M.D. joined my practice in September 2017. I have been practicing orthopedic surgery in Scottsdale for thirty five years. During this time, I have been privileged to treat as many as 3 generations of patients from the same family. As an orthopedist, I am able to improve the function and therefore the quality of my patients' lives. I especially enjoy the challenge of treating a variety of orthopedic problems, from sports-related injuries to total joint replacements. My surgical practice specializes in arthroscopic surgery and total joint replacements. I am honored to have been named a Top Doc by Phoenix Magazine once again for 2017. "

Patient Comments (40)

I am a retired heart surgeon and believe I am in a good position to evaluate another surgeon's performance. Dr. Vincent Russo did a total knee replacement on me in January 2018. The results have been excellent. His skill, experience, and consideration for his patients are exemplary. I would...more

I just had my right hip replaced on 2/20/18 by Dr Vincent Russo and could not be more pleased. He did my left on 3/15/16.

Dr. Russo and his staff are excellent. Made the pre and post surgical process seamless. Was thorough and took the time to answer all my questions. I will have Dr. Russo do my other knee when it is time. Could not have asked for a better team or doctor! Absolutely outstanding!

My mother, a little over weight but nothing crazy, has had weight issues since her hips (both) started to go bad a few years back. During the app, he...more

I regret that you were not present for your mother's office visit and did not hear first-hand the conversation she and I had regarding her weight and the proposed surgery. I expressed my genuine concern for her health and the increased probability of a better outcome following surgery with some weight reduction. There was no intent to "fat shame". It was an honest presentation of information that is well-documented in the medical literature and my 35 years of orthopedic surgical experience .
