Dr. Kavanagh: Total Knee Replacement

Dr. Kavanagh is an excellent surgeon. I interviewed three different orthopedic doctors for my total knee replacement surgery and he was the only doctor who could do the minimally invasive option which means he doesn’t cut muscles and has less tissue and nerve damage. It is a harder surgery to perform and health insurance doesn’t pay him any more. He does it because he genuinely cares about his patients well-being and recovery. He was also the only doctor I met with that was explained the type of knee implants. I got a rotating platform knee which mimics the natural gait of women. The other two orthopedic surgeons only implanted fixed knees. This allows only one movement and will eventually show more wear than a joint with multiple frames of movement. Do your research before a major surgery. Find out about types of implant, size of scar, follow up care, complication rates, how many surgeries the doctor performs per year…etc. I had a long list of questions that were all answered without condescension. Dr. Kavanagh was patient and thorough.  (5 star review on Google from Marylisa S.)

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. (Dennis N., Greenwich, CT)

Dr. Berliner: Hip Replacement

At 34, I was young to need a hip replacement, but needed one regardless. I am very grateful to have found Dr. Berliner. He handled a complex case swiftly and adeptly, with a calm confidence unparalleled in other surgeons.

The post-operative pain was negligible compared to the amount of pain I was in pre-op. Within a week, I was walking with a cane, something I hadn’t been able to do during the 5 months prior.  Evident of his people skills, he even handled my post-operative anxiety about complications occurring like a pro, alleviating any concerns.

I sent the post-op images to a relative overseas who is also an orthopedic surgeon. He said Dr. Berliner did “brilliant work.” – I can only agree.  Thank you. (Laura D.)

Dr. Vitale: Broken Wrist

The staff, from the moment you walk in, are professional, courteous and friendly! Dr Mark Vitale is a top notch orthopedic surgeon! I broke my wrist last week and required surgery. I was not the least bit nervous because I knew I was in great hands! He’s an Intelligent, caring, talented and dedicated surgeon. What more can you ask for!? Don’t get me started regarding Greenwich Hospital! Unbelievably professional hospital! (5 star review on Yelp from Amelia C. in Mamaroneck)

Dr. Sethi: Meniscal Repair

Dr Sethi helped saved our son’s chances of getting into college after a very bad meniscus tear. We are forever grateful for the care and his expertise in correcting the problem. He always made my son a priority, giving our son his full attention, and I’m sure he puts the same effort into every patient. Thank you very much for everything, we look forward to seeing our son back on the court this season. We hope we never have to return, but if we do, we know we are in the best hands. ( 5 star review on Yelp from Jessica P. in Easton, CT)

Dr. Wei: Wrist Pain

My 30-minute visit with Dr. Wei relieved three years of intermittent wrist pain. Dr. Wei was professional and helpful. He was also punctual–I was seen about 5 minutes after I arrived at the office. He answered all of my questions and helped me explore different avenues to resolve my wrist pain. After being treated, I left satisfied and in less pain. I found ONS through my insurance provider, and I am so happy I came here. Great staff and facility. (Anonymous 5 star review on Yelp)

Dr. Simon: Back Pain

I went to see Dr. Simon after two back surgeries with another doctor. At first he thought I might need a third surgery, but when he looked at my back, he saw I had a slight rash. He took a picture of the rash, called the hospital to speak with disease control, and sent a doctor the picture. The conclusion, it was Shingles! I was amazed at his level of caring, and can’t recommend him enough. In all my years, I’ve never seen a more diligent doctor. Need room here to add more adjectives! The BEST!   (5 star review on Healthgrades by MT in Pound Ridge NY)

Tanya Kalyuzhny, DPT: Tennis Elbow

I would like to take this opportunity to formally compliment one of your employees at ONS in Greenwich, CT office. Ms. Tanya Kalyuzhny has been providing physical therapy to my right arm due to tennis strain for more than three months. Since her first evaluation, I feel that my quick recovery is due to Tanya’s individualized physical therapy programs and expertise.

Encouraging, knowledgeable and professional are the words that immediately come to mind to describe Tanya as a physical therapist. She intuitively knows how to push me beyond what I thought I could do without going overboard. Her insightful facts, statistics and knowledge of the human body are remarkable. She is extremely knowledgeable in orthopedic injuries by including both traditional types of exercise along with newer methods that improve functionality and movement while also reducing pain.

I believe Ms. Kalyuzhny is a key asset to ONS and is part of the reason why many others and I will continue to recommend ONS for any physical therapy treatment. (Felicity K. Old 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 Jessica C. in New York)

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. Clain

Dr. Clain performed bilateral bunionectomy surgery for me this year and I couldn’t be happier with the care he provided. His surgical skills are known to be outstanding, and they are matched by his compassion and attentiveness. I highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering from foot problems. (5 star review on Heathgrades from a patient in Ludlow, VT)

Dr. Kowalsky: ACL Reconstruction

Dr. Kowalsky performed ACL reconstruction on my knee and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result! 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. 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)
