Had a labrum repair done in my shoulder by Dr. Colizza. I couldn't be happier as my recovery was very quick and smooth. I was able to get back to working sooner than expected.

In February of 2018 at the age of 62 I had my right hip resurfaced by Dr. Colizza. I now no longer take any pain medication after 30 years. My severe limp is gone. I can now walk miles without issue and the range of movement in my hip is almost that of a normal individual of my age and I am still improving weekly. My forever thanks to Dr. Colizza, his assistance Santina, and all the wonderful staff at Tri-County.

Dr. Wayne Colizza Sr. and his associates and staff has been our Orthopedic Doctor and Surgeon for our entire family . Our first experience was with a torn meniscus on our daughter during a soccer game. Dr. Colizza fixed it with microsurgery and had her back in the sport quickly. Our son had a sever ankle sprain and Dr. Colizza fixed that and had him back to the game quickly. He is just fantastic.

Dr. Colizza has been my orthopedic surgeon for about 25 years. He has performed numerous surgeries on my knees leading up to both knees having been replaced and most recently a hip replacement. The quality of care given by Dr. Colizza and his PA, Rich Wong, have been exceptional over the years. Their compassion and expertise is second to none! Being a self-employed roofing contractor and an avid sports enthusiast, I was able to rely on Dr. Colizza to get me back up and running quickly!

Dr. Colizza is an amazing surgeon! He has repaired both of my torn rotator cuffs and biceps tears successfully and with minimal pain. Not only is he the best, he is personable, warm and explains every step of the operation. I highly recommend both Dr. Colizza and his assistant, Rich Wong. I have had many surgeons over the years, and Dr. Colizza by far the best!!

I suffered a crushed right hip due to a home accident, and was rushed to Morristown Memorial Hospital in April, 2016. My orthopedic surgeon did not have privileges at Morristown, so Dr. Colizza stepped in and took my case. I have never met a kinder, more reassuring individual--especially during a medical emergency. Dr Colizza replaced my hip and help me find the best in-patient rehab facility available. I have made a full recovery, which I owe to him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Colizza for six years. He operated on my knee and is currently treating my fractured arm. He is an excellent doctor who always takes the time to explain my condition and what to expect during the healing process. He also always squeezes me into his very busy schedule when I need to see him ASAP (i.e. when broke my knee and then again my arm).

Fantastic Dr. He eliminated my chronic pain in my hip rom a shattered femur 12 years ago by replacing my hip. He even made my legs the same length again. Great personality to boot!!!

Dr. Colizza and his assistant Brenda were very accommodating to me when I was in pain and in need of immediate hip surgery. I received excellent care and service and will not hesitate to call his office if I am in need of orthopedic services again.

Terrible doctor. Spent maybe a minute with me, moved my arms a few directions, shouted angrily there is nothing wrong with me, angrily demanded to know why was I there. I asked for pt for shoulder injury and he was very upset saying he could not do that as he had no diagnosis. Next doc said immediately that I had strain and ordered PT. Head of rehab facility then diagnosed impingement and tendonitis when symptoms increased. AVOID COLIZZA.
