Patient Testimonials

The following are pre- and post-op images of a young boy who had bilateral, complex, complete syndactyly. Two 3 hour surgeries were performed to separate his digits. A skin graft from the ipsilateral arm was needed for each surgery for a successful outcome.

  • I honestly doubt that there's another Doctor out there in an discipline that is as much of the complete package as Dr C. In my family we've seen him for injuries big and small on family members young and old. Not only is it hard to tell where the injury was, each patients individual fears and conditions were accounted for. A ton of experience, a ton of compassion, this is one heck of a Doctor.

  • In August 2019 I sustained an injury which required bilateral tendon repair surgery. Dr. Catalano was highly recommended to me by a top orthopedic surgeon I know. From the first meeting on, I cannot praise Dr. Catalano enough. He is an excellent surgeon; followed up promptly and put me in the hands of a great physical therapy team. Dr. Catalano is simply the best!!! I am back to full activity a short time after my injury due to his excellent care.

  • After four unsuccessful surgeries to repair a severed flexor tendon, I met with multiple orthopedic surgeons hoping to find a creative solution. Not only did Dr. Catalano accept the challenge and devise a multi-stage surgical and therapy plan that was successful, but he went above and beyond every step of the way in a doctor-patient relationship that has lasted several years. Dr. Catalano and his team are the best of the best.

  • Dr. Catalano is not only an outstanding physician, he also is very personable and has a great bedside manner. He repaired my elbow over 2 years ago and I have never felt better. Within a couple of months I was able to return to my normal activities of playing Squash and Golf completely pain-free. I have referred many friends to him. He is excellent!

  • Dr. Catalano helped relieve my ongoing shoulder and bicep tendon issues.. He’s smart, thoughtful, and truly cares about his patients. He spends a generous amount of time with his patients and explains in great detail your options for recovery. I was nervous ahead of my surgery but Dr Catalano helped me feel at ease and I would trust no one else for any hand, arm, shoulder issues.

  • Dr. Catalano fixed my rotator cuff tear and 6 months later I won the club tennis championship. Dr. Catalano treated my husband's wrist with steroid injections and splinting during that time with success!

  • I had seen Dr. Catalano about 5 years ago for a problem with my elbow. He was great! I broke a bone in my hand and went back to him and he is still great!

  • Excellent physician. Took me right away. X-rayed my wrist himself and explained the problem and treatment options thoroughly.

  • Recently i had a deep cut in my hand - at the ER, the attending physician was unsure if had tendon damage and recommended we consult with a hand surgeon before proceeding. I called Dr Catalano on his cell and he talked the ER staff through the steps to take to ensure the tendon was not damaged.....whilst he was on vacation! Subsequently he performed my follow up care and arranged to see me at short notice during lunch time and after work. Great patient care and wonderful bedside manner - THANKS.
