People think that experiencing four knee surgeries would steer me away from any type of pounding exercise. It is not only a physical, but also a mental battle to go through rehab after performing on such a high level while playing division one soccer. The doctors at Northtowns Orthopedics were very professional and eased my worries both before and after each of the knee surgeries. I am beyond thankful to say I am feeling better than ever and I am training for my first ever Boston Marathon. If it were not for the doctors providing me with the proper pre-habilitation exercises, experience during the surgeries, and rehabilitation exercises afterwards, I would never be able to accomplish my dream of competing in the Boston Marathon. — Lynn Gugliuzza
I have seen three different doctors in this group over the last 10 years. Dr. Lanighan has done 3 different surgeries on my hands to remove cysts from the joints, Dr. Douglas for shots in my knees for arthritis and Dr. Pochatko for surgery on both of my feet. Each time I indeed saw the PA first, as is routine protocol these days, and they were all very knowledgeable and professional. Also, when I saw the physicians they explained everything thoroughly and provided excellent care. I was very “inconvenienced” by what I couldn’t do after surgeries etc., but I did what they told me each time and the outcome was great!!!! I highly recommend this group to all!!!!! They are very professional and have excellent surgical and non-surgical skills. — Elizabeth Micoli

Dr. Gambacorta did an amazing job with my torn labrum and has me up and running before I thought! Doctor and his staff, especially Debbie, are all just so nice and kind. They were able to always work with my schedule and location. I can’t say enough good about Northtowns or the staff and thank them from the bottom of my heart. — Renee Patience Sedeski
