Kudos and Accolades to Dr. Damian Andrisani
I highly recommend consulting Dr. Damian Andrisani for your orthopedic needs. I have been a patient of his for two separate issues – a frozen shoulder and a recently discovered Chronic ACL tear. Both times, Dr. Andrisani was not only a professional, excellent clinician, he was also a caring and compassionate individual. A combination that is rarely discovered. He takes the time to discuss and explain his diagnosis, giving in-depth consultation that is easily comprehended, thereby allaying any fears or apprehensions on the patient’s part. I cannot highly recommend Dr. Andrisani enough to any and all patients with orthopedic concerns.
I wanted to express my gratitude with Dr Andrisani and his exceptional staff. They made me feel like a real person and not just a number. The staff is extremely helpful, with a special shout out to Justin for his prompt attention to my insurance paperwork. My shoulder surgery went extremely well, as well as my recovery.
Thank you to Dr A and his entire staff!

Dr. Andrisani is amazing. From the first visit he took the time to go over my options and made me feel at ease when we decided to do knee surgery. He listens to your concerns and makes time for you. The whole office from the time you make your appointment with Nikki on the phone to going into the office are amazing. So caring and there to help you. They are the best and care for their patients. Thank you.
I wanted to thank Dr A and his staff for taking the time to walk me through the procedure prior to surgery and then helping me to understand what to expect after the surgery. I also would like to give a special thanks to Justin for going above and beyond to ensure my medical forms were completed in a timely manor.
Thank you again to everyone who worked with me throughout the process.
First time patient
Hi, I have been a patient of Dr. Andrisani for a few months now. He performed a total shoulder replacement for me this past July. He and his team -Regis, Justin and Elyse have been nothing short of great. I cannot say enough about them. Whenever I had questions they took their time to explain things, and to let me know how the surgery was going to happen in detail. Each follow up appt. has going so smoothly and I thank them for that. All in all, a good bunch of people. Very professional. Thanks Pete
“It has been six months since you operated on my shoulder for a torn rotator cuff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the very successful outcome I achieved as a result of your expertise. My whole experience with you and your very professional staff has been wonderful. You are to be commended on the practice that you run. Every single person I encountered did an excellent job. All personnel conducted themselves in a very capable manner, my questions were answered on a timely basis, appointment times were kept, and it appeared to me that your staff truly enjoys their work. I have full range of motion, with no pain, and am cautiously working on strengthening exercises. Again, thank you very much!”
I first met Dr. Andrisani in Jan of 2017 when I had a left shoulder that was causing discomfort. After an MRI he ordered, he indicated the rotator cup was strained but not detached. He gave me a chortisone shot, which alleviated the discomfort. I was also introduced to the Dr,s enthusiasm for baseball. Later that year l reinsured the same shoulder and returned to Dr. Andrisani, where another MRI indicated a torn rotator cup. He recommended surgery. Surgery was performed as scheduled, during which additional shoulder damage was discovered and corrected. My experience with Dr. Andrisani and everyone of the staff I encountered were professional, courteous and efficient. The post operative treatment was informative and closely coordinated with the physical therapy. My experience with DOS , Dr. Andrisani, and staff exceeded all expectations.
