I have seen Dr.Shalvoy for over 20 years for various surgeries that i required. He has done rotator cuff surgery as well as reattaching both of my major pectoral muscles. He has done knee surgery as well,taking care of a meniscus problem i have had. He has kept me able to play softball thru these surgeries which i have played my entire life. I believe he will be doing a full knee replacement on me in the near future. I am 69 and do not want to give up my life style and Dr.Shalvoy has played a large role in making that possible.

Excellent surgeon, excellent results

I have had two occasions to have surgery with Dr. Shalvoy... both were due to injuries... one on the right ankle and one on the left. The left ankle was about 10 years ago, the right ankle was last year around Thanksgiving. The injuries were serious ones (for example, the right ankle was a stage 4 fracture with dislocation)... In both cases, Dr. Shalvoy and his team (including the Physical Therapists) did an outstanding job. Less than three months post-op I was able to drive all day, attend a convention on my feet presenting for hours and drive home the next day, I can walk 10 to 12 miles non-stop at this time. I can stand for many hours. No complications. Highly recommended.

Mrs. Mary Darezzo

I had 2 wonderful experiences with Dr. Shalvoy and his staff .. this is one doctor who listened carefully, and took time to explain both my knee replacements before and after surgery .. I like that he was unpretentious and modest about his expertise, and I was never "just a number" .. Thanks to Dr. Shalvoy, I felt peace of mind and very positive that my life could only get better .. he's definitely a 5 star surgeon, good person and family man. I highly recommend him for any knee or knee replacement surgey.
