“Dr. Colizza did my knee surgery previously, and I will continue to see him for any knee issues that I have. I will need to have a knee replacement eventually and will see Dr. Colizza for that surgery. He has a high level of professionalism along with a lovely personality that many physicians do not have today. He doesn’t rush you in and out of the office as many other physicians do. He takes time with his patients and provides what is in their best interest.”

“I reinjured my shoulder Dr. Colizza recommended surgery to repair rotator cuff tears. I was reluctant to follow thru due to the long recovery time and rehab required after this type of surgery. I have known Dr. Colizza for many years he has treated both my son and daughter for different orthopedic issues in the past. Trusting his judgment, I decided on the surgery. Its been 5 1/2 months since the surgery. I am 69 years old, this morning as part of my weekly routine I went to the YMCA, I lifted weights to continue strengthening my shoulder and then swam a few laps in the pool. I am so happy that I had the surgery. My shoulder feels 100% better. Full motion, no pain. The recovery was long, and you must be patient, but well worth it. The entire process at Tri-County Orthopedics was terrific; the staff handled everything it such a professional and efficient manner. Scheduling surgery to follow up care.”
– Farrell F.
