An ONS Experience

Amazing services and staff. I never imagined that major surgery could be done at such a high level of excellence. I was always treated with kindness, compassion and respect. My recovery has been remarkable and these results mean I will be better than ever. I highly recommended this practice.  (5 Star Google Rating from E.T.)

An ONS Experience

It’s been over a year now since my elbow surgery and I’m back in full swing. Literally! My golf swing- I had my best season to date (over 45 rounds) and achieved my lowest handicap score of 10.8. I can’t thank you enough for applying your surgical skills in repairing my elbow. With PT my recovery was smooth and quick. I was back up and running in just a few months. I feel better and stronger than ever. Your staff from start to finish was professional and compassionate. Thank you. (D.T.)

Dr. Cantlon

Today was my 1st visit to see Dr. Cantlon and he has such a great bedside manor, he’s gentle soft spoken, and easy on the eye lol. In all seriousness I really appreciate him and his staff taking such great care of me, and let me add no wait time which is very important to those of us who work.  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from D.M.)

Dr. Cantlon

We cannot thank Dr.Cantlon enough for his care and expertise in helping our young son recover from a broken arm. From the moment he came to the ER to set the bones, to the 3 cast changes and the appointments along the way he was reassuring, attentive, calm and we felt like we were in the best hands. The ONS front desk staff, nurses and Xray tech were also so kind each and every time ….even when my son would cry from fear. I highly recommend ONS and Dr.Cantlon. We are so grateful our son healed so well and it back to running around! (5 Star Review on Google from C. G.)

Dr. Clain: Foot Conditions

Dr. Clain is the best doctor to treat foot problems in Fairfield County, CT. He is a true professional, and also a very nice person. I recommend him highly. (5 Star review on Healthgrades by a patient from New Canaan, CT)

Dr. Clain: Foot Surgery

I have had very good experience with Dr Clain on foot surgery. He worked on my right foot. The foot is perfect to me. I just completed surgery on my left foot with him. The team is attentive. Pain control is good- my block lasted. We are hoping for a similar fine result on this left foot as we have on the right. Fingers crossed. I have great trust in Dr Clain. (5 Star Review on Google by W.S.)

Dr. Cunningham: After coming from a less than adequate experience from another practitioner and staff, I was truly amazed and pleasantly surprised at the professionalism and courtesy of your office extended to me as a new patient. From receptionist to doctor, I enjoyed my experience! Thank you!! (Patient Survey)

Dr. Cunningham

As always, phenomenal service and care from the time I walked up through the time I walked out – front desk staff, doctor, x-ray tech, billing. Dr. Cunningham is transparent, informative and patient. Overall I couldn’t be happier. 5 Star Google Review from A.E.)

Dr. Cunningham: Knee

Cos Cob resident J.M. was 24 when he was playing basketball with friends and tore his ACL. An x-ray at Stamford Hospital indicated no broken bones but Jason was advised to see an orthopedist. The next day, he visited James Cunningham, MD. A physical examination determined he had most likely ruptured his ACL. An MRI confirmed the diagnosis. “An avid basketball player and all-round athlete, J.M. was a good candidate for an ACL reconstruction,” said Dr. Cunningham who, in the surgery last April, used part of his patient’s patellar tendon to reconstruct the ACL. The surgery also included work on a partially torn meniscus. The surgery lasted an hour and a half and J.M. went home later the same day. His recovery was steady and his pain was managed with Advil. After five days he began a physical therapy program, which he followed three days a week for the first month and gradually reduced over the following few months. His knee regained full flexibility and before long he returned to playing basketball with his friends. (J.M.)

Dr. Cunningham: Shoulder and Knee

Dr. Cunningham has been my doctor for many years and has done a successful meniscus repair 6-7 years ago. More recently he helped me with a stiff shoulder 3 years ago, (advising excellent stretching exercises that worked) and has been very helpful with my knee and ankle problem. On my latest visit he was very effective in assessing the problem with my knee by recommending and administering a cortisone shot (which had excellent results) and laying out a plan for the next six months so I can return to golf. As I age he is an important medical partner. (F.B.)

Dr. Delos

I had both knees replaced by Dr Delos in June and was back to work full time in 3 weeks. By 6 weeks i was walking like a track star and nobody could tell that i ever had surgery. If you are considering a knee replacement run, don’t walk, and go see Dr Delos!  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from B.H.)

Dr. Delos

Dr. Delos was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my son’s Lyme disease almost immediately and this was confirmed by testing. (Anonymous)

Dr. Delos

Dr. Delos is an outstanding man, doctor, and friend. He helped save my leg and got me back on the field way quicker than anyone expected. Would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an orthopedic surgeon in Fairfield County, CT. One of the best around. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from P.)

Dr. Delos

I’ve had my share of experiences with orthopedic surgeons. But I must say Dr. Delos is by far one of the best if not the best doctor I’ve ever been to. He strives to do the best for you and your recovery. Thank you for all of your help Doc because of you I can go back to my normal life. God bless you this and every day. (R.M.)

Dr. Delos

Overall – very pleased. Great bedside manner and professional. Great surgeon and follow up post-surgery. Always available when needed as well as attention to detail. Listens to concerns and needs.

Dr. Delos

After years of pain and therapies that were not working, I decided to have surgery. It was the the best as it could be. The appointment was booked quickly, after care was great and the procedure itself worked wonders. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Delos to anyone. He is super professional and very competent. Not that I want surgery again but if I did it would be with him! (5 Star review on Healthgrades from a patient in New Canaan, CT)

Dr. Delos, Tanya K., DPT and the ONS Team

The ONS surgical team, physical therapy team and admin are all amazing. I had the good fortune of working closely with Dr. Delos and Tanya K., DPT (Greenwich PT Director), and they, and all on their team/staff were kind, knowledgeable, professional, efficient – – and it is clear they genuinely care about their patients and their improvement! They also give you the confidence and support you need to get through your recovery. From the moment you hobble in the door to the moment you walk out (better than ever), each member of the team makes a point get to know and be there for each individual client – particularly, so if you have a question or any need anything at all, someone on the team can assist you promptly/safely. They definitely go above and beyond in their patient care and it shows in the results! I never expected my recovery to be so pleasant and faster than expected! (5 Star Review on Google from S.S.)

Dr. Delos:

Dr. Delos explained my displaced meniscus injury and his recommendations for fixing it so that I could get back to doing what I could before. He was very clear and very positive in his description, diagnosis and surgery to be done. I had been suffering for over a month and received several other recommendations from another doctor. I felt confident that the surgery he recommended would fix the issue. He also was able to get me in for the surgery within the week. Arthroscopic surgery went well, physical therapy went well and I was able to walk without a cane and drive in 2 weeks. No pain after surgery. It was important to get to PT quickly after surgery and to follow the plan outlined by the therapist. I would recommend Dr. Delos for a knee injury.  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades, Aug. 6, 2019)

Dr. Delos: ACL and Meniscus

Dr. Delos is not only an exceptional doctor, but he is caring and compassionate. My daughter had a torn ACL and Meniscus and was scheduled to compete in Disney. Dr. Delos worked with her to assure she could take the mat and compete prior to her surgery. He was factual but understanding of the opportunity she had in going to Disney. I would recommend him to EVERYONE in need of his specialty. (comment from RateMD) 

Dr. Delos: ACL Reconstruction

Dr. Delos diagnosed my torn ACL and suggested reconstructive surgery using a part of my hamstring. I was reluctant to commit to surgery because of friends who had horror stories (with doctors in different practices), however Dr. Delos talked me off the ledge several times, boosting my confidence. Everything went seamlessly and his bedside manner both before and after the surgery was extraordinary. I couldn’t recommend him and the ONS team enough! (5 sSar review on Healthgrades from S.O. in Stamford, CT)

Dr. Delos: ACL Repair

I recently had my ACL done by Dr. Delos. It was a great experience and the surgery went really well. I am really happy with how it is healing and how quickly I was able to get back to regular life.

Dr. Delos: ACL Surgery

In 2014, local student athlete Brooke was playing basketball with her team in the 7th of 8 games at the AAU Nationals when she became injured during a layup after another player collided with her causing immediate knee pain. “I fell down and the trainer helped me off the court. We could see instant swelling and knew I needed to see a doctor” said Brooke.

Brooke suffered a painful injury which required surgery. ONS orthopedic surgeon Demetris Delos, MD performed surgery to repair a torn ACL and a partial meniscus tear. Brooke said, “I felt a little bit timid before the surgery but the surgery went well.” Continue reading “Dr. Delos: ACL Surgery”

Dr. Delos: ACL Tear

For 21 year old S.R. the first game of the Division III  soccer season at SUNY Purchase was her last.  She twisted her knee awkwardly while running down the field and tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her knee. She knew the ordeal she was in for, having torn the ACL in her other knee four years earlier while playing high school soccer.  “I knew there would be surgery and six months of rehabilitation, but  it was my senior year and I was determined to be back in shape to play lacrosse in the spring,” she said.

With the help and guidance of sports medicine specialist, Dr. Demetris Delos, S.R. achieved her goal.  Not only did S.R. contribute to her team’s 9 and 3 season, she was named MVP of the team, and Female Athlete of the Year by the university. She also qualified for the First Team All Conference and All Regional in lacrosse.

“Dr. Delos was so nice and friendly and straightforward in terms of expectations and recovery time. He turned a bad situation into a great experience.”  (S.R.)

Dr. Delos: Bilateral Knee Replacement

I had a bilateral knee replacement in May of this year and I could not be more pleased. While there was some concern about doing both knees at the same time, the procedure went extremely well and the recovery has been all I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Dr. Delos for this procedure. If possible, he exceeded my expectations.  (5 star review on Healthgrades from a patient in Stamford, CT)

Dr. Delos: Dislocated Kneecap

Dr. Delos changed my life! I went into my first appointment not knowing what to expect, and truly scared. He was kind, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable of my situation. I went in thinking my knee was dislocating, and after ten minutes of talking and examining my knee, Dr. Delos explained to me that my knee cap was dislocating, making it looser each time. I had surgery a month later and now I feel so much more secure! I can do everyday activities with ease, whereas before I was scared to even walk. I highly recommend Dr. Delos! He was amazing in every way! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from B.A., Jul 2, 2019  )

Dr. Delos: Fractured Collarbone

Dr. Delos is a wonderfully gifted orthopedic surgeon who is also incredibly compassionate and personable. He instills a well-deserved sense of confidence in his patients, and even has a sense of humor! Dr. Delos surgically repaired my fractured collarbone by affixing a metal plate. The fractured bone and surgical wound healed completely without complication and post-surgery pain was well-controlled and never an issue. I highly recommend Dr. Delos and the highly efficient staff at ONS. (Five star review on Healthgrades from a patient in Port Chester, NY)

Dr. Delos: Knee Osteoarthritis

Dr. Delos is wonderful. I went to him as a second opinion about my knee osteoarthritis.  After that meeting, I knew I needed to have him do my surgery. I’m only 4 weeks out, but there is a positive difference already. I was scared to death if the total knee replacement and he made it so much easier for me. Dr Delos takes pride in his work which shows in the results, thank you Dr. Delos! (Comment on Instagram from E.F.)

Dr. Delos: Knee Replacement

Young, innovative, and on the cutting edge of his specialty. Dr. Delos replaced both my knees and I had wonderful results with minor pain, minimized by his phenomenal anesthesia formula. Best of all, the lack of external stitching (using medical glue instead) eased the healing process and left no ugly scarring. I could not ask for better results. Highly recommended by HSS and deservedly so. Thanks Dr. Delos. (comment from RateMD)

Dr. Delos: Knee Replacement

Dr. Delos is an amazing man and surgeon. I had concerns about another physician that I was going to and heard great things about Dr. Delos, so I went to him for a second opinion. He was completely straight with me and reviewed everything with me. I  didn’t feel the least bit rushed. He took all the time that I needed. I walked away knowing what was wrong with my knee and subsequently, chose him for my total knee replacement. His bedside manner is wonderful and he is compassionate, caring and confident. He made sure that I knew exactly what was wrong and how he would treat it. I had ad my surgery and  am 6 weeks out. I’m already driving and back to work! His office staff are all great, and my PT is going well. They are all so supportive, as Dr. Delos is. I would recommend him to anyone. I can’t say enough wonderful things about him. Thank you Dr. Delos!!!!!! I’m a new woman with a brand new knee!! (5 Star Review on Google from E.N.) 07/10/2019

Dr. Delos: Knee Surgery

Sam McCanncropp

12 year old soccer player, Sam M., was on top of his sport when he developed knee pain and swelling after a fall during a game last June. He kept it to himself because he didn’t want to jeopardize his chance to compete internationally at the Madrid Cup in September.  Although he did make it to the tournament,  he spent most of his time on the sidelines with his knee too painful, swollen, and difficult to move.

Upon returning home, Sam’s mother, Paula, brought him to see Dr. Demetris Delos, a sports medicine physician who specializes in knee injuries.  Dr. Delos ordered an MRI, which revealed a slight fracture in Sam’s knee and a one inch piece of loose cartilage that would require surgery to repair.  The injury was close to the growth plate, which could have had long term consequences.  However, the surgery went well and Sam is back on the soccer field with his sights on the Hackley School’s Academy Team.

“Dr. Delos was always positive and everything he said would happen transpired, “said Paula M., Sam’s mother. “I was very impressed with the high level of care and collaboration with the physical therapists because they all wanted Sam to achieve his goal.  Everyone was unbelievably caring.” (S.M.)

Dr. Delos: Meniscus Repair

Dr. Delos performed ACL repair surgery as well as a meniscus repair after a ski accident in March 2018. Dr. Delos is not only an excellent surgeon, but also a caring and concerned doctor.

I am almost back to my full strength and am forever grateful to Dr. Delos and the Physical Therapy team at ONS. (5 Star review on Healthgrades from M.R. in Riverside, CT)

Dr. Delos: Shattered Collarbone

Dr Delos did surgery on my 15 year old son’s shattered collarbone, putting in a long plate and 8 screws. My son felt very little pain within 2-3 days and none by one week out. His physical therapist was AMAZED at his mobility and strength – and the fact that he had zero pain – and gave all the credit to his surgeon. Dr Delos followed up himself by phone and then at multiple appointments to make sure all was well. To my son’s delight, he was cleared to return to lacrosse 2 weeks earlier than expected. We would recommend him without any hesitation! (5 StarReview on Healthgrades from C.)

Dr. Delos: Shoulder and Arm

I broke my shoulder and arm and Dr. Delos was brought in to operate on me. He’s got a wonderful manner about him and he’s an excellent doctor who follows up with his patients. (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Delos: Shoulder Surgery

Dr Delos is the best! He performed surgery on my shoulder after a car accident and it’s 100% better! No pain and absolutely no problems after the surgery. He recently did a total knee replacement for me. I was in excruciating pain before the surgery. He was so compassionate with me. I could truly feel he felt my pain and wanted it to go away. He wanted the best for me and that’s exactly what he did for me! I’m completely pain free, have absolutely no problems with my knee now. He gave me my freedom back. He is a wonderful, caring, skilful, and knowledgeable doctor. I can’t say enough about him! I highly recommend him, as I said, he is the Best!  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from E.O.)

Dr. Delos: Shoulder Surgery

In a little less than two years ago, I had a small accident and broke my right shoulder. I had been seeing another physician for almost five months and my shoulder still wasn’t healing. The physician had tried of number of different things but nothing seemed to help. Needless to say my frustration level was over the top. Being right handed, many things in my life were quite difficult especially since my job requires me to type a lot on a computer.  I had just seen the physician for an appointment and he wanted to wait a few more weeks to see if what we had been trying for months might finally work to get my bone to heal. A member of my family convinced me to see a doctor in the ONS practice because they had helped him a few years earlier. I made an appointment for Friday, July 29 with Dr. Delos. I met with him and conveyed my overwhelming frustration and I needed something done quickly. After reviewing my case and seeing the other things that had been tried, he realized surgery was the only option left. I agreed but told him it needed to be done as soon as possible because in six weeks I was going away and needed to be well on the way to being healed by then. Well, he and the staff took my request very seriously and started jumping through hoops to get me in for surgery. The staff was very helpful in getting everything together. Everything about the surgery was explained so I understood the procedure and recovery very well. Well, five days later on Wednesday, August 3, I was in Greenwich Hospital getting my surgery. The surgery was a total success. All my follow ups went well and the staff took great care of me. I would easily recommend ONS for any orthopaedic needs, big and small. Thank you. I can’t explain how good it was to get back the use of my arm.  (F.V.O, 5 star review on the ONS Facebook page)

Dr. Delos: Shoulder Surgery

Dr. Delos: Torn Meniscus Repair

Dr. Delos recently performed arthroscopic knee surgery for a torn meniscus. I was pleased by his conservative approach to addressing my injury with a plan I was comfortable with. I started with Physical Therapy first, and then ultimately surgery. He thoroughly explained what the surgery would entail, the recovery process and set a realistic expectation of when I could return back to exercising. (Five star review on Healthgrades from M. in CT)

Dr. Delos: Total Knee Replacement

If it wasn’t for Dr. Delos I would not be walking without pain. I am almost 7 months out from TKR and I feel great!!! I am back to my normal routine. Dr. Delos’s bed side manner is fabulous. He is caring and listens to what you have to say. I recommend him all the time when people ask who did my surgery. (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Greene

I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Greene. I am a professional tennis player and had a literal and figurative pain in the butt when I played. Other symptoms included recurrent groin “pulls” and glute strains and deep achy pain across my low back. No one could properly diagnose the underlying cause until I saw Dr. Greene, who diagnosed me with labral tears and impingement (FAI) in both hips. My symptoms did not perfectly align with those typical of FAI, but he believed this to be the cause and we decided it was best to operate given my urgency to get back to the tour. He basically did a rim trim, osteoplasty and labral repair on both sides (6 weeks apart). This decision had me so anxious, and now I sit here 3.5 months after my second hip surgery, Indian-style… sorry, it’s 2020… “cross-legged” with no pain whatsoever! I am back to playing tennis and weight training – already doing things I previously could not. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to use Dr. Greene over other prominent surgeons in NYC and CT. He is by far the most trustworthy, communicative, personable (and probably most skilled) of the four surgeons I saw… he also has a great sense of humor, despite being a Falcons fan. (5 Star Review on Google from S.K.)

Dr. Greene and Dr. Vadasdi: Hip & Elbow

I have been coming here for at least 15 years and have seen a variety of amazing doctors … Dr. Greene being a favorite in our household for years and would trust him with everything.  Recently I broke my elbow and was sent to Dr. Vadasdi.  She was amazing! Great with surgery and aftercare. Very compassionate throughout the whole process! Thank you ONS for getting me through everything! (E.D.)

Dr. Greene, Alicia Hirscht, DPT

I thought it was important to send a note to someone at ONS about Dr. Greene and Alicia Hirscht, DPT. I have been treating with Dr. Greene for a torn abductor tendon and other hip issues since December. I started PT in Stamford under Alicia Hirscht. I would easily recommend either practitioner to a family member.

Dr. Greene’s communication was clear and concise when weighing treatment options.  PT Hirscht made room in her schedule for me and took the time and effort to get me up and playing tennis again. They are both true professionals and showed an incredible amount of patience working with me to recover from my chronic injuries.

Keep up the excellent work and hiring practices. (note from patient P.Y.)

Dr. Greene: Hip

The ONS team is like family. Dr.Greene is my hip doctor and he is excellent!! I feel that I am in great hands from the moment I walk in the doors.. Thank you ONS. (T.A.)

Dr. Heftler and Dr. Sethi

My experience with the entire ONS practice is nothing short of exceptional. The doctors are beyond caring and are professional and respectful of my time which is almost unheard of these days. I recommend your facility for both Dr. Heftler and Dr. Sethi to anyone wanting fantastic quality and care. (Patient Survey)

Dr. Kavanagh: Knee and Hip Replacements

I am 85 years old and have had 2 total knee replacements, one in August 2006 and one in July 2011. I am still playing tennis actively and when on the court I am not even aware of my knees. I have no pain or discomfit either playing tennis or walking stairs. My only regret is that I did not have Dr. Kavanagh fix my knees 10 years sooner. My wife had a hip replaced and she is also fine. If you need either a knee or hip replaced, I heartily recommend Dr. Kavanagh. (5 Star Review from B.T.)

Dr. Kessel is great. She takes the time to explain the procedure and overall, took sufficient time with me. Great bedside manner. (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Kessel

I am so grateful for Dr. Kessel. She is professional without being off-putting, caring, able to listen to concerns, and does the procedure with minimal discomfort. She is supportive of the treatment we are doing in the present and in the future, and does not set up a scenario where surgery is to be expected. Dr. Kessel is always positive about the future of my condition and I thank her for that. Also, the in office and front office staff across the board is caring, pleasant, professional, and comforting. I always feel better after an appointment with Dr. Kessel, even if I am in pain. She and her staff have an exceptional placebo effect on my pain and I love them all for that. (Patient Survey)

He’s an excellent surgeon, but also has superb bedside manager and is willing to spend whatever time is necessary for his patients to feel informed and cared for. He managed my expectations all through the process, from surgery through physical therapy. I’m cleared for skiing again and couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Kowalsky: ACL Repair

Dr. Kowalsky repaired my torn ACL spring of 2019. I am so so thankful to be running, hiking, and exercising again and looking forward to trying skiing this winter! Dr Kowalsky took the time to patiently answer all of my questions before and after the surgery. He explained pros and cons for proceeding with surgical repair, the different ways to approach the repair, and reasons for choosing a specific technique for my surgery. I felt confidence in my decision to move forward with my surgery and have no regrets. (5 Star Google Review from D.G-P)

Dr. Kowalsky: ACL Surgery

I had ACL surgery with Dr. Kowalsky and it went better than I would have hoped! I’m currently 5 months out of surgery and feel great. Thanks to Dr. Kowalsky and team for making me feel comfortable as well as answering all my questions along the way. (5 star review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Kowalsky: Broken Humerus

Dr. Kowalski besides being very caring, professional and friendly did an amazing job putting our son’s broken humerus bone back together. The follow-up xrays revealed an amazing progress and almost seamless recovery. We are very grateful to Dr. Kowalski and his staff for taking such great care of our young athlete and enabling him to get back to skiing, training and competing in record time! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from a patient in Darien, CT)

Dr. Kowalsky: Elbow Injury

Dr. Kowalsky is the absolute best! Following a serious sport related injury (elbow), I was treated with the utmost professionalism and personal care. He talked me through every step of my recovery, checked in with me, was there when I had questions/worries about being able to return to full activities sports, etc. A year later, I needed emergency surgery (meniscus repair) which he did too. He took such amazing care of me! His level of expertise and personal involvement is unparalleled! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from S.D. in Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee

Dr Kowalsky and the entire staff at ONS are professional, incredibly knowledgeable about their individual crafts and really cared about getting my knee/quad and leg back to normal so I can resume my daily activities. Dr Kowalsky, despite being very busy took the time to respond to a question via e-mail and I can’t name another Dr who would take the time to do so! Additionally ONS is “one stop shopping” from setting up appts, MRI, surgery and PT all under one roof! Their PT staff is exceptional! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from C.W. in Larchmont, NY)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee Injury

Dr. Kowalsky was kind and understanding of my desire to “get back” to rowing and dance. He took time to ask questions to understand my commitments to my teams and how important my attendance was at upcoming events. I appreciated his empathy and straight-forward options. He was a nice person too. – (Patient satisfaction survey)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee Surgery

I had a serious knee accident with 3 detached quad muscles at the age of 68. Dr. Kowalsky performed a surgical procedure to reattach them all. I’m able to ski and bike again! Recovery takes time but I’m very happy with the results. Thanks so much! (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee Surgery

Thanks to Dr. Kowalsky, my knee surgery was very easy. I had no pain and the recovery time was unexpectedly quick and easy! I did not have to take any painkillers. He really knows what he’s doing! Thank you Dr. Kowalsky! (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee Surgery

Dr. Marc Kowalsky is an incredibly kind and caring doctor that took the time to explain every step of my very complicated knee surgery and was extremely diligent in attending to my growing concerns as a patient. Not only did he fix my knee physically but he basically turned my way of life around mentally. I would highly recommend him to anyone !!! I cannot speak highly enough about him and his practice! (5 Star Review on Healthgades)

Dr. Kowalsky: Meniscus Repair

Dr. Kowalsky – I had my left meniscus repaired by you in October 2016 and my right meniscus repaired in April 2017. My desire was to get back into marathon running. I completed my 15th marathon on Sunday, January 7th at Walt Disney World thanks to you and your staff’s expertise and assistance. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the ability to be back running. Again, thank you. (D.N., Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Kowalsky: Meniscus Repair

So much praise for Dr. K so I hope this will sum up who he is as a physician, surgeon & man. He knew I was pressed for time to get my meniscus repaired so he scheduled me first thing in the morning (also my preference). As I was leaving after recovery, I met him in the parking garage. He came in early to operate on me alone and then went on with the rest of his day! Who does that but a kind, compassionate, considerate human! Also, I came home with pics which he explained later. I’m eternally grateful! (5 star review on Healthgrades from J.C. in New York)

Dr. Kowalsky: Rotator Cuff Repair

Dr. Kowalsky operated on my shoulder for rotator cuff repair a year ago. Excellent result with full range of motion. He is a great surgeon with skills!! Also, very personable and professional. Many people had given me horror stories about their similar surgery and were advising against it. So glad I didn’t listen. I’m about to start playing tennis again which could not have happened without the results I have. Thank you Dr. Kowalsky! (5 star Review from E.B. in Stamford)

Dr. Kowalsky: Ruptured Patella Tendon

Dr. Kowalsky is above and beyond a great surgeon. He has the knowledge, skill, and experience to back it up. Dr. Kowalsky truly cares about his patients and that is why I am writing this review. I ruptured my patella tendon falling down the stairs. After a visit to the ER, Dr. Kowalsky saw me the very next day due to the severity of the injury. In the office, Dr. Kolwasky was calm and reassuring as I panicked that my life would never be the same. I knew after that visit I would be ok. Dr. Kowalsky cleared his schedule and made room for my surgery within a week. He is beyond dedicated to his profession. He called multiple times to check up on me and he is genuinely concerned about getting my knee back to normal, pre-accident. I’m almost 4 months from surgery and I am having great progress. He is a fascinating person, he does so much work in the community and with local sports teams. I regret I had to meet him under these circumstances, but so fortunate that I chose him to perform my surgery. (5 Star Review on Google from F.P.)

Dr. Kowalsky: Shoulder

I was so pleased with Dr. Kowalsky‘s professionalism. He was very thorough and spoke to me in “real talk” so that I understood what was going on with my shoulder. I also liked the fact that he told me if I had any questions or problems to feel free and call the office. I called him about a medication I was taking and his nurse got right back to me. I highly recommend Dr. Kowalsky. (comment from Health Grades)

Dr. Kowalsky: Shoulder Surgery

This is a follow-up to my 5-star review of Dr. Kowalsky (dated 12/13/18), shortly after I completed P/T and had my last visit with the doctor. I had suffered a very serious shoulder injury while bicycling late May 2018. Dr. Kowalsky performed a complex surgery mid-June to repair my shoulder, which had several tears of the rotator cuff and biceps. I am now back on my bicycle, and doing the somewhat challenging rides that I had been doing prior to my accident, although perhaps a bit more carefully. My shoulder feels great, is working great, and I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Kowalsky’s surgical skills and wonderful bedside manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a shoulder injury. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from B.Z.)

Dr. Kowalsky: Shoulder Surgery

I had a very serious shoulder injury. Dr. Kowalsky clearly and completely explained the extent of the injury and the surgery needed to repair my shoulder. He also accurately predicted the recovery time and effort needed. Dr. Kowalsky always took as much time as was needed to thoroughly answer every one of my questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has experienced a shoulder injury. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Kowalsky did an amazing job on my surgery. My arm is fully back to normal. I never had to wait for my appointments. He has a very good bedside manner. I would strongly recommend him for surgery. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades by S.)

Dr. Kowalsky: Tennis Elbow

After receiving no relief from a major NYC Ortho hospital for a severe case of tennis elbow, I found Dr. Kowalsky. He assured me that even at my age, 66, there was no reason that my tennis days had to be behind me. He performed surgery flawlessly, and I was back on the tennis court in 3 months, playing some of the best tennis I have played in years. I will be eternally grateful to him for not putting me out to pasture and I will continue to recommend him to others. He is kind, caring and an excellent surgeon. Simply the best! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from K.K.)

Dr. Kowalsky: Torn Meniscus

This past May, Dr. Kowalsky performed arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus and to address two other issues in the same knee. Shortly after the surgery, I was able to travel on a long-planned vacation and to pick up on my marathon training when I returned. On Sunday, November 3, 2019 I completed my 32nd consecutive NYC Marathon with not one bit of pain. Thank you, Dr. Kowalsky! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Miller

Outstanding combination of skill and personality! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Miller

Dr. Miller has been my shoulder doctor since 1997. Through 4 surgeries and a complicated bone disease, he has been my idea of the perfect surgeon. One who treats you before and after surgeries and takes the time to balance treatments, PT and surgeries. He cares and has built a remarkable organization at ONS in his spare time. A surgeon who other surgeons consult. One of the top shoulder surgeons in the country. Highly recommended.  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Miller

I had ongoing shoulder problems and received excellent care from Dr. Miller over 1 1/2 yrs.  Finally, after relapses, I had arthroscopic surgery. Excellent results and it is wonderful to be pain-free! All office staff, nurses and radiology staff also are great. (5 Star Review on Yelp from S.P. of Bethel, CT)

Dr. Miller

Dr Miller is an excellent surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. He has a way of making you feel like you are his most important patient. He answers all of your questions fully without ever making you feel rushed. He is truly exceptional. I would recommend him to everyone I know! (5 star review on Healthgrades from R. in White Plains, NY

Dr. Miller: Chronic Shoulder Pain

I went to see Dr. Miller after putting up with chronic shoulder pain for years. Dr. Miller diagnosed torn Rotator Cuffs and bone spurs in both shoulders. Dr. Miller fixed both shoulders in the span of 10 months. A year and a half later, my shoulders are fully recovered and pain free. The experience throughout couldn’t have been better. Dr Miller is a shoulder expert and a pro (my partially torn RCs were probably a walk in the park compared to the more complex repairs that he does). Regardless, I received the same excellent care. Beyond the surgical expertise, my experience at ONS was always outstanding. I don’t believe that I ever waited more than 10 minutes to see Dr. Miller. At the same time, Dr. Miller always took time to explain things to me and answer all of my questions, such that I never felt hurried. I strongly recommend Dr. Miller and the entire ONS staff. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Miller: Rotator Cuff Repair

When shoulder surgeon, Dr. Seth Miller, performed a rotator cuff repair on Penny W’s husband, Bob, little did she know that she would turn to Dr. Miller to repair her severe rotator cuff injury  in just two months’ time.  “I was very impressed with Dr. Miller’s bedside manner,” Penny said.  “He was very generous with his time and answered all of our questions. He was not condescending and never made us feel rushed.  His communication style was clear and his easy ability to interact with us was truly distinguishing.  It was an amazingly great experience.”

Dr. Miller: Rotator Cuff Surgery

A fully functioning shoulder joint rotates 360 degrees. When I arrived at ONS, my range of motion was only a fraction of that. With the skilled hands and intelligent mind of Dr. Seth Miller, my significant rotator cuff tear has been successfully repaired and I can fly again! (comment from RateMD)

Dr. Miller: Shoulder

Dr. Miller– Just to let you know that I am grateful for the excellent surgery you performed on my left shoulder. I feel like I have completely recovered after seven months. Thanks so much for giving me back the use of my shoulder. Looking forward to playing golf again in the spring. (G.D.)

Dr. Miller: Shoulder Replacement

I still can’t believe this. 4 days ago I walked into Greenwich Hospital to have a total shoulder replacement. Since I came home from the hospital I have zero pain. I have not taken a single pain pill. I am looking forward to start my physical therapy at ONS.  You can believe all the hype you heard about Dr Seth Miller. He really is the best of the best. (5 Star Review on Yelp from A.K., Astoria, NY)

Dr. Sahler: Back and Neck Pain

Great visit. I came in because of pain in my upper back/neck. Dr. Sahler was friendly and concerned and spent time asking me questions about my sports activity and lifestyle. After having me x-rayed, he was really great about showing me the x-rays on his laptop and clearly walking me through what the issue was (it was ligament-related in my neck…a sprain). It was also good that he showed me what was healthy + good about my spine too. We then talked about simple lifestyle changes. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Sahler: Back Surgery

Dr. Sahler has provided exceptionally good care taking patience and gave a long view in tracking down and treating residual pain after back surgery. He provided as much art and detective work as traditional medicine. I am grateful that he has stayed with the chosen course because with each treatment, the pain is less and I become closer to getting my old life back. (Patient Survey)

Dr. Sahler: Spine

I want to thank Dr. Sahler for the tremendous job he did giving my daughter an injection and taking the time and effort to have a heart to heart talk with her. In my experience, most doctors wouldn’t take the time to do that, usually next in line is right at the door. She really had a connection with him and I wanted to make sure all of the time that he gave us was very much appreciated. (D.S.)

Dr. Sethi: Biceps Tendon Rupture Repair

Dr. Sethi and the entire support team at ONS are amazing! From my initial consult, to the surgery, to the rehabilitation period … they set the gold standard for medical care! Everyone I interacted with was an attentive listener, informative, and appeared to genuinely care about my recovery. I had a biceps tendon rupture repair five months ago which was performed at their Stamford surgical facility, which was state-of-art. (5 Star Review on Google from J.K.)

Dr. Sethi: Biceps, Rotator Cuff

Dr Paul Sethi did a great job on my shoulder. I tore my long head bicep tendon and my rotator cuff was a mess. I work construction, played baseball, coached little league etc. I’m 60 now. DR. Sethi was my 3rd opinion and gave me the most confidence. Operation turned out great! He repaired it all! I have no more pain now that I’m back working, working out and throwing baseballs to my grandkids !!! He’s the best !!! (5 Star review on Google by R.V.)

Dr. Sethi: Broken Collarbone

I broke my collarbone in my last football season and was looking for a doctor who could help me the best way possible. Doctor Sethi was my doctor for the process and he was amazing to say the least. He was very helpful to my family and me. We could not be happier. It is not just him as well. The office ran to perfection with a great system of getting in and getting out. In fact, my father and I were 20 minutes late to our appointment. We sat down and within 5 minutes I was in my room waiting to get X-rays. Overall 5/5, 10/10, 100%. It is a great place to be.  (5 Star Review on Yelp from P.P.)

Dr. Sethi: Knee

Dr. Sethi– Thank you for providing your expertise and service. You performed a ACL replacement, OAT’s procedure, and meniscectomy on my left knee. As a veteran and college student of limited means…thank you for your medical service. (MZL)

Dr. Sethi: Knee and Shoulder Surgeries

Dr. Sethi is an amazing doctor, and a really nice guy. He operated on my knee and my daughter’s shoulder. Both procedures had a perfect outcome!  He has a wonderful bedside manner and really cares about his patients. He explained everything and took the time to answer my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Sethi. (5 Star review on Healthgrades by S.B. of Rye, NY)

Dr. Sethi: No Opioids

Dear Dr. Sethi,  It has been nearly a year since my surgery and I am very grateful that you were my surgeon. The outcome is exactly as I had hoped for and as you predicted. I have nearly full range of motion, no pain or discomfort,  my strength is back and continues to improve. I was initially skeptical when you prescribed no opioids after surgery, but I quickly understood they were unnecessary because extra strength Tylenol was all that I needed.  The 41/2 hour drive to your office and the hospital was easily worth it.  I very much appreciate being accepted as a patient, as well as your professionalism, your friendliness, courtesy, candor and the exemplary treatment I received in all respects.  I am a major fan.  Sincerely, E.W., Jr.


Dr. Sethi: Rotator Cuff

I went to see Dr. Paul Sethi for a second opinion regarding a small rotator cuff tear on my left shoulder. My sister recommended Dr. Sethi as he repaired her shoulder a few years before. I was so impressed by Dr. Sethi that I decided to have him perform the surgery. During surgery it was discovered that my tear was massive. After seeing the images of the tear, it’s amazing that Dr. Sethi was even able to repair my rotator cuff. I went for my three month follow up today and I am at 100%. My friends at the gym who have had the same injury and surgery as me can’t believe what I am able to do at just three months. Most of my friends are not where I am and it’s been a few years since they had their surgery. I tell everyone that I had the most amazing surgeon. Dr. Sethi originally told me that it would take about nine months to lift my arm straight up and I am able to do that in less than three months. I recently sent my daughter to Dr. Sethi for knee pain she was experiencing. When she came home, she told me that she was also impressed by his bedside manner and the care she received from him. Dr. Sethi has the most amazing bedside manner and truly makes you feel as if you are in good hands. He will take care of you and you don’t need to worry about anything. I also want to say that the staff at ONS is truly professional. The staff does an amazing job in scheduling their appointments. I have never had to wait in the waiting room and usually go right in to see the doctor. I can’t say enough about Dr. Sethi and ONS. (5 Star review on Google from D.C.)

Dr. Sethi: Rotator Cuff and Bicep Repair, Bone Spur Removal

I went to Dr. Sethi as I had been experiencing shoulder and bicep pain for some time. Dr. Sethi and team surgically repaired both my rotator cuff and torn bicep (as well as removing a bone spur near my rotator cuff). While the first couple of months of recovery were difficult, I am now fully recovered at 9 months and my shoulder / bicep have never felt better. Dr. Sethi is a great doctor and surgeon and answered all questions I had along the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone as you will be in excellent hands. (5 Star Review on Google from R.F.)

Dr. Sethi: Rotator Cuff Repair

I first met Dr. Sethi in early 2017 after injuring my right shoulder and having sleep disruption. The ONS MRI DX was a minor tear of the rotator cuff and labrum plus a bone spur. I was worried about missing time from a new job I’d started and Dr. Sethi told me I could give PT a try and he administered a cortisone shot for the inflammation and pain. No push towards surgery whatsoever. He examined me physically, showed me the X-Rays and MRI images, walked me through what was going on and gave me all the facts and info I needed to make my decision. In about 8 weeks I was done with PT and sleeping normally. Fast forward to March 2019 and I reinjured my shoulder, this time severely. The DX was a major tear but again, Dr. Sethi didn’t push surgery. He did say no to another cortisone shot in case surgery became necessary but once again said I could try PT to avoid the downtime. In a few weeks of struggling through PT and sliding backwards we agreed on surgery and on June 5th Dr. Sethi did his thing. When I woke up and met with Dr. Sethi he told me the tears were much worse than the MRI had revealed but the good news was that my tissue was viable at the surgical margins making the repair easier and adding to his optimism that I’d have a good recovery. He had previously warned me “You’re going to hate me for the 3 months following surgery.” LOL – No but I quickly understood what he meant after the nerve blocker wore off, pain, discomfort, you’re one handed, strapped to an ice cooling machine (definitely a great help). Make no mistake. It’s horrible. Sleep? Forget it but that was already an issue for months and you’re wearing a sling 24 hours a day for weeks so – yeah, it sucked. Dr. Sethi’s pain management team and his PA’s were in constant touch with me. At my first follow up Dr. Sethi was his usual optimistic and articulate self, showing me the pre and post-surgical images from the surgical camera. WOW! My rotator cuff was just shredded. Then I could see the repaired view, what a difference. It was time for PT and he was pleased with my progress to this early stage. Fast forward and Dr. Sethi just “discharged” me, I’m close to fully recovered almost 9 months post-op. Sleep returned by October of 2019, that was for me the worst part of the experience but within normal boundaries. I worked hard at PT and for this part of the recovery, Range of Motion and Strength gains came steadily week after week. I did the work and got the results. I’m now in the gym 3-4 times a week, do my Home Exercise program plus regular cardio and sensible lifting and have zero pain. Dr. Sethi is an acknowledged leader in his field. He’s a straight talker, a funny and personable guy and he exudes quiet confidence while simultaneously listening to whatever feedback or questions you may have. I can’t say enough about him and his team at ONS. People warned me about surgery and I know some friends who didn’t have the same results as me. My days of throwing javelin and playing rugby are behind me but my every day living is pain free, sleeping like a baby and able to reach and lift and put on or take off my jackets, hit the gym with confidence and more. Paul is a great surgeon and he cares, that’s obvious. Thank you Dr. Sethi! (5 Star Review on Google from S.L.)

Dr. Sethi: Rotator Cuff Surgery

I had shoulder pain for a couple of years, knowing that eventually rotator cuff surgery would be necessary. Dr. Sethi at ONS was fantastic, helping me with PT and exploring non-surgical options, and understood my reservations and concerns. Once the last cortisone shot wore off we scheduled surgery for December 2017. He cautioned me that for six weeks I would curse him but in six months I would praise him. 20 weeks after surgery I was hitting golf balls, in far less pain than before the surgery – I don’t even need the Advil and Aleve I used to use. I can’t recommend Dr. Sethi and ONS more highly! (5 star review left on the ONS Facebook page by J.F.)

William McHale: Getting Back in the Game

Will McHale Paul Sethi MD
William McHale with ONS Orthopedic Surgeon, Sports Medicine Specialist Paul Sethi, MD who has provided orthopedic care for Will since the 7th grade.

The doctors at ONS have always been my resource for orthopedic issues. I met Dr. Paul Sethi when I broke my ankle playing football in 7th grade. In high school I broke my wrist and had a number of other strains and sprains, each time, returning to ONS. Dr. Paul Sethi is a sports medicine doctor who has an athlete’s mentality when it comes to treatments and recovery. He has a balanced view of treating an injury thoroughly and properly- while understanding the urgency of getting the athlete back to the game as soon as possible.

I played linebacker for Yale University and started in 30 consecutive games between my sophomore year and the end of my senior year. In my senior year though, I tore the labrums in both of my shoulders. It was so bad that I had to wear a restrictive brace to keep my shoulders from slipping out of the socket during games. I couldn’t do most of the upper body weight training regime. It was rough. I had to get them repaired. On top of everything, I was under pressure to recover in time for my Pro Day in front of NFL scouts.

McHale Push Up Position
Will McHale – post shoulder surgery.

The surgeries went great. Dr. Sethi found more damage than originally showed on the MRIs.  Afterward, did physical therapy three to four times a week. By four months post surgery, I was able to do most of the prescribed exercises and my shoulders felt back to normal. I regained all my strength between six and seven months after surgery.

Dr. Sethi was completely sensitive to my goal to perform well on my Pro Day, and he worked with me to set up an aggressive rehab schedule. I was able to return to play with complete confidence in the strength of my shoulders, and I haven’t had any issues with them since! The result was that my Pro Day went great, and I was invited to Minicamp with the New Orleans Saints! I just returned from playing professional football in France and played at 110%! (WM)

Dr Paul Sethi is a wonderful person and a fine surgeon! His office is run efficiently and is always on time. Dr. Sethi is generous with his time and answers all the questions and concerns I have.

Dr. Sethi: Shoulder Surgery

I am very grateful to Dr. Paul Sethi for restoring me to a pain-free life. My torn up shoulder constantly ached, woke me up at night, and limited all sorts of physical endeavors with that arm. 3 short months later, I have a fully restored range of motion with almost no lingering pain, and I’m sure with a few more months of strengthening PT I will be better than new. I cannot say enough about his approach, his thorough explanations throughout the process outlining my treatment options, and his skill as a surgeon. (Make sure to search YouTube for some of his presentations on the latest techniques in shoulder surgery.) Thanks again to Dr. Sethi and the entire support staff at ONS for an outcome that is better than I could have hoped for! (5 Star Review on Google from K.B.)

Dr. Sethi: Shoulder Surgery

I am a 45-yo female competitive rower. I’d been having trouble with my right shoulder for 18 months. After a year of applying every plausible alternative therapy to avoid surgery, I succumbed to the reality. There was no question in my mind that Dr. Sethi would do my surgery. He’d operated on a few fellow athletes and has a sterling reputation for both outcomes and manner. He delivered beyond my expectations in all respects. As a fellow athlete himself, he really understood the unique considerations of my life and the specifics of my individual sport. He warned me that going from my usual athleticism to no activity would have psychiatric effects. That warning came to mind when I started catching myself randomly crying when my kids didn’t put away their laundry or I saw videos of puppies and babies on my Facebook feed. I realized what was going on and that helped tremendously. He anticipated that I’d be eager to get back to my sport and have a propensity to try to “over-achieve” the process or not rely on others for help. He sternly warned me that some of the character qualities that serve me as an athlete would be liabilities in recovery. That warning changed the way I considered my choices. We had a detailed discussion about the potential repairs that could be made and the trade-offs that would accompany a faster recovery and less extensive repair. After that discussion, I elected for a “one-and-done” approach. He ended up repairing my bicep, labrum and rotator cuff. He also removed a very large bone spur that was sitting on top of my rotator cuff. I did my PT with ONS as well. As always, they were stellar. But here’s the punchline. He said the soonest he would be willing to have any kind of conversation about my return to rowing would be 5 months post-op. I accepted that and adjusted my expectations. At every appointment, he was very pleased with my recovery. I then thought, “Cool. I should be good to go at 5 months.” At my 3 month post-op, he concluded my exam with the following statement. “I can’t think of any reason why you can’t return to rowing.” “What? Are you serious? What restrictions?” “Don’t do anything stupid.” I got back on the erg and haven’t had any problems. Went back to full time training and after about a month also started performance training. When we got back on the water, I found out that I could still even hold the full weight of one end of a quad by myself. No problems with the shoulder. I’ve asked physical therapists and others how the heck I healed so quickly. The main theme of their answer is “surgeon skill.” (5 Star review on Google by J.S.)

Dr. Sethi: Torn Labrum

I was fortunate enough to be connected to Dr. Sethi when I started experiencing shoulder issues. He diagnosed the issue immediately and tried the least invasive approach to attempt to rectify. After some time it was clear I would need surgery to repair a torn labrum. I can attest to the fact that Dr. Sethi is the consummate professional, very personable, and compassionate. If he is treating you for orthopedic issues you are in good hands! Thank you Dr. Sethi!  (Five Star Review on Goolge from C)

Dr. Sethi: Youth Baseball Injury

Dr. Sethi is amazing. He did a phenomenal job for my son helping him get over a baseball injury that HSS gave up on. I strongly recommend him. (5 Star Review on Google from O.C.)

Dr. Vadasdi

Dr. Vadasdi was wonderful. She performed two surgeries, the first to find out what was wrong with a repair conducted by another surgeon, and a second to then fix the problem. She also thought to collect tissue samples during her first surgery, then finding that I had an infection that required 6 weeks of daily antibiotic infusion. I am now 100% healthy and back to normal routines, including yoga (at age 68!) (comment from RateMD)

Dr. Vadasdi

Dr. Vadasdi: It’s been over a year now since my elbow surgery and I’m back in full swing. Literally! My golf swing- I had my best season to date (over 45 rounds) and achieved my lowest handicap score of 10.8. I can’t thank you enough for applying your surgical skills in repairing my elbow. With PT my recovery was smooth and quick. I was back up and running in just a few months. I feel better and stronger than ever. Your staff from start to finish was professional and compassionate. Thank you. (D.T.)

Dr. Vadasdi: Shoulder

Dr. Vadasdi: Broken Patella

From the moment I walked in the ONS door with my broken right patella, I knew I was in the right place!  I was most fortunate to be referred to Dr. Vadasdi by two of her former patients. I immediately felt comfortable as she is an Ironwoman Triathlete and I am a 3 time Ironman.

The entire ONS group, from surgery to PT, has turned a most difficult situation into a pleasant one.  I am always greeted with a warm smile and never wait more than five minutes.  The staff at ONS took care of ALL my health insurance needs leaving me with my sole responsibility of showing up on time. I would highly recommend ONS to anyone in need of orthopedic care or PT. They are simply the best. This is from the heart as I am soooo grateful for ONS taking good care of me!! (patient S.W.)

Dr. Vitale

My experience with ONS in general, and Dr. Vitale in particular, was outstanding. From my very first contact with his staff, to the excellent outcomes of the procedures on both my wrists, I could not be more pleased. Dr Vitale listened patiently, addressed all of my concerns, and is an outstanding surgeon. I highly recommend him.  (5 Star Review on Google from J.K.)

Dr. Vitale

I recently saw Dr. Vitale for a wrist injury. Dr. Vitale is not only extremely knowledgeable, nice to work with, but he explained my situation and told me how to deal with the problem without the need for surgery. He is an outstanding physician and person. I highly recommend him especially for hand issues. (5 Star Review on Google from A.E.)

Dr. Vitale: Hand Pain

Dr. Vitale is fantastic. I have had pain in a particular spot on my hand for years and have seen several doctors about it, with little guidance as to what was wrong. Dr. Vitale was able to quickly diagnose the issue and treat it accordingly. I am very grateful for the effective treatment and pleasant experience at ONS. (5 Star Google Review from G.G.)

Dr. Wei

Dr. Wei has been a wonderful and caring surgeon. He is very knowledgeable and skilled and I would not hesitate in recommending him. I had a post-surgery infection arise and he made sure I got the proper care and the infection resolved. ONS is also a great place if you have an orthopedic or neurosurgical issue.

Great experience with Dr Wei. We were nervous about going to ER when my son fractured his thumb and were referred to ONS. The entire practice was friendly, efficient and professional. Dr Wei took time to answer questions and was very good in addressing concerns with my son. Thank you!  (5 Star Review on Google by J.M.)

Dr. Wei

My experience with Dr. Wie and his team has been outstanding, starting with my initial consultation through my procedure and including my follow up visit yesterday. (5 Star Google Review from R.Z,)

Dr. Wei

I went to Dr. Wei after first being treated by a different doctor for a finger injury. My finger was curled and I could barely move it or feel it. Dr. Wei significantly helped improve my finger’s extension and range of motion. It has been a long process, but Dr. Wei has been great in helping me make the right decisions to improve my finger and get it as close as normal as possible. Dr. Wei is very knowledgable and attentive. I can tell he cares and loves what he does. I am glad I went to Dr. Wei for help recovering from my injury. (5 Star Review on Google from L.A.)

Dr. Wei

Dr. Wei is very prepared and professional, but most of all, he has done a great job addressing my needs and concerns when it came to solving a recurrent issue on my wrist.  (5 Star Google Review from G.N.)

Dr. Wei

Dr. Wei and the team at ONS are amazing. We went to the urgent care on a Saturday as my 3.5yr old fell and hurt his arm. Everyone we met that day was so kind and made my son (and me) feel very comfortable throughout the process. Dr. Wei came right in after we received x-rays and calmly explained the casting process. The staff was friendly and so sweet to my son at every visit. I am so thankful to have had his expertise during this time.  (5 Star Google Review from T.C.)

Dr. Wei

I have nothing but gratitude for the great expertise and care that I received from Dr. Wei and the staff at ONS. As a result of a bad fall I fractured both elbows and my right wrist. The break in the wrist was missed by the radiologist who initially read my x-rays but was, fortunately, noticed by Dr. Wei’s keen eye. He recommended a cast for 6 weeks which, thankfully, avoided a surgical fix, and PT with Alison Veridun, an expert in hand therapy who Is fantastic! Thanks to the two of them I have full use of my hand and wrist and continue to get stronger every day as a result of their good advice and strengthening exercises from Alison. I highly recommend this great team if ever you need an orthopedist specializing in hand/arm/elbow! (5 Star Google Review from R.R.)

Dr. Wei

I would recommend Dr. Wei in an instant. He was extremely patient and professional, answered all my questions related to my arthritic fingers and truly cared about his successful treatment. Dr. Wei was as gentle as he could be in what is a very uncomfortable procedure. His staff was friendly and enthusiastic and the wait time was minimal. Thank you, Dr Wei and ONS. (5 Star Review on Google from R.M.)

Dr. Wei

Dr. Wei is the Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery Specialist you want by your side when your child gets injured. Dr. Wei is extremely methodical, reassuring, professional, and totally awesome.

Dr. Wei

In a time when HIPAA can make healthcare very sterile, Dr. David Wei of ONS in Greenwich is a breath of fresh air. The staff at ONS and his personal attention to my wound and subsequent recovery was excellent. I was very confident in his treatment and very much appreciated his bedside manner. I was completely comfortable in his care, and would highly recommend him and ONS. Thank you!  (5 Star Google Review from B.U.)

Dr. Wei: Broken Hand

Dr. Wei and the people at ONS are the best. I suffered from my first broken bone a few months ago in my hand, right in the middle of my final lacrosse season. From the moment I saw the x-ray to the moment I got the hard cast off, Dr. Wei and his crew were by my side. I made my goals of returning to play the final two games of my season. Without the help from these people, I’m not sure I would have made the comeback that I did. I strongly recommend using ONS.  They’re the best in the business. (5 Star Review on Google from E.S.)

Dr. Wei: Elbow Surgery

Dr. Wei is a wonderful doctor! I came to him with a badly damaged elbow from an old injury I sustained ten years earlier. I ended up needing surgery in December. The surgery went great and I’m living pain free. Dr. Wei explained everything I would go through and was super informative and very compassionate and understanding. My experience with him and ONS was excellent. (5 Star Review on Google from D. O.)

Dr. Wei: Ligament Transplant

Dr. Wei was extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough assessing my hand before “we” decided on surgery. He helped me weigh all the pros, cons, alternatives and helped make the final recommendation. I am sooo glad I had the surgery because I am still very active and I was able to bounce back from 2 full ligament transplants in my right dominant hand. I was back playing hockey within 6 weeks with the help of a strong Physical Therapist who helped me stay ahead of my post op plan. I would highly recommend Dr. Wei as this was my first surgery ever (50 years old) and not once did he push me one way or the other, we weighed all the risks which made me feel very confident in our treatment plan. Thanks again for all your help Dr. Wei, I am off to my 10 pm hockey game tonight, we are in first place……maybe because I am back helping the team!!! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from D.)

Dr. Wei: Surgery

Dr Wei was fantastic. Every aspect of my treatment with him was as good as I could ask for. His initial diagnosis and explanation of my options; his help deciding the best way forward; his execution of the procedure and the immediate aftercare; his empathy and bedside manner; his consideration and accessibility; the time he spent with me; his follow up and focus on my recovery; all of these things were as good as they could be. He really was one of the nicest and most successful surgeons I’ve met. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Miller: Rotator Cuff Repair

Dr. Miller came highly recommended in 2005. Unlike other surgeons who wanted to operate on my shoulders, Dr Miller was confident my shoulder pain was related to my neck. He was correct and I had surgery at Yale for Eagle’s Syndrome, the removal of elongated styloid bones in my neck, pains gone. Recently I required rotator cuff surgery. I know from other patients also, he interacts and treats his patients as he would himself. He is compassionate, conservative and a highly skilled surgeon.(5 Star Review on Healthgrades from G.H. MD)


I only go to ONS for the very best of medical care. The doctors are superb, the facilities spotless, and the staff is helpful and courteous. It is the only practice I will go to for orthopaedic surgery or treatment. Well done! (5 Star Review on Google from A. R-P)

ONS Physical Therapy: Frozen Shoulder

Alicia Hirscht is an absolutely top-notch physical therapist!  As a physician who cares for patients myself, it was so wonderful to experience the kindhearted, knowledgeable, compassionate, and encouraging approach that Alicia took while treating my shoulder problem.  She guided me through an intensive 12-week program of physical therapy during which time I started out with a frozen shoulder and ended up with virtually full range of motion.  She managed my expectations beautifully, and she gave me terrific guidance with home therapy exercises.  I cannot recommend her highly enough! (Note from patient F.S.)
