A Focus on Knees and Shoulders

In the field of sports medicine, Dr. Venuto focuses his practice on care of the knee and shoulder. These two areas can suffer some of the most debilitating injuries and lead to long-lasting disability in the absence of proper care. Thankfully, Dr. Venuto uses some of today’s most modern techniques in order to treat injuries and disorders of the knee and shoulder.

Unlike some orthopedic surgeons who will simply advise an athlete to stop doing their preferred sport in order to improve chances of recovery or avoid re-injury, Dr. Venuto understands the drive and passion that athletes have for their sports. He works closely with each athlete patient to arrive at an effective solution that will properly address the injury while minimizing downtime.
