I have had two unfortunate incidents and had needed Dr. Cozzarelli and staff Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute.
Never would I take the time tow rite a letter to compliment or complain. But in this case I feel this extraordinary group needs to be recognized.
September 7th, I crushed my tibia plateau and my ankle in a horrible accident. On September 8th of 2015, Dr. Cozzarelli did surgery on my leg where he put about ten screws and a plate in my Tibia to rebuild the Plateau and several screws in my ankle. The prognosis was good and Dr. Cozzarelli was on point with every step of my recovery (no pun intended).
Then I had the second incident, I slipped on the ice, and Dr. Cozzarelli did orthoscopic surgery on my knee. Going into surgery was surreal, no apprehension, no anxiety, just ultimate confidence. I walked out of the hospital several hours later.
The team of professionals, that support his efforts also outstanding. From the moment they greet you until you leave their offices you will be treated as if you were royalty.
You and your staff have my most sincere thanks, trust and highest regards.
Total knee replacement surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States.
This procedure is used to decrease pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life for many patients. Surgeons have performed conventional knee replacement surgery for more than 30 years with generally excellent results. Yet, as with any surgical technique, surgeons have sought new ways to perform the surgery less invasively, with less pain and a faster recovery. As a result, there have been numerous advances in this field over the last few years. Patients now experience less pain, and less time in a hospital, have less blood loss, and are able to return to activities much more rapidly.
Today, skilled orthopedic surgeons are able to implant a total knee replacement device without cutting the quadriceps muscle and tendon as they do in conventional surgery. This new procedure is called Quadriceps Sparing Knee Replacement Surgery. The quadriceps muscle is the most important muscle in the leg, responsible for straightening the leg and extending the knee. When the quadriceps is weak, the leg has a tendency to buckle.
