    My experience with Prof. Massimo. Was nothing short of fantastic and a bliss. Had a major ACL injury playing football. Couldn’t even walk, multiple people recommended him, and he was very professional in handling the issue. Checked everything before deciding on surgery. The surgery went great, I was on crutches for the first week. Then he informed the physiotherapist how to address my injury, within the 3rd week of the surgery, I was walking without crutches. And I’m very serious when I say this, most of the people I’ve told how fast I was back to walking and doing other exercises after the surgery, didn’t believe me. Me doing the Physchio and etc was important, but all of that was based on the very successful surgery. It’s difficult to find doctors that can be trusted these days. But he’s 100% there for you. Another example is my little 13 year old brother, he went for a check up for pain in this leg, he checked his leg and informed me that it’s nothing to worry about and what to do. Any other doctor would have put him in mris and others, either because their not confident enough in their decision or for the money of it. I would 100% recommend his judgment to anyone. Cant thank him enough for what he has does for me. I lead a very active lifestyle, work wise also. Hence, me going back to that lifestyle was very important and crucial to me. And Prof. Massimo achieved that for me. I’m 2 month past my surgery, at the gym everyday, full confidence in my leg. Again , absolute bliss.

    Prof. Massimo is one of the best orthopaedic doctor I have ever met. His instant diagnosis and guidance in treatments are indeed worth for the one who approches him. I personally had a dilemma about my treatment but after meeting prof. Massimo, I was relieved and recovered from my severe pain without doing surgery suggested by other doctors. I am very indebted for his concern and warm hospitality. I highly recommend to anyone who undergoes any kind of ortho issues.
