Patient Reviews
Sep 23, 2017
I had Arthroscopic Surgery on my knee. The procedure began at 7:30 am, and I was at a football game by 7:00 pm. My knee felt better post-surgery than it did pre-surgery. Minor swelling and very manageable pain. Not only is Dr. Zafuta a great doctor, he also has a great personality and bed-side manner. The surgical staff was great. The CRNA was amazing. If you need orthopedic surgery then he's the guy to go to.
