My son jayme was in a terrible car accident Halloween 2006, Dr. Conflitti rebuilt his pelvic bone with 7 plates and 21 screws! Realigned his scapula..he spent a lot of time talking to his father and I, we explained he had just got out of the navy the week before, that he was 3rd generation Navy..he updated us every hour during surgery. Today, 14 years later our 36 year old son is thriving, he has a giant “zippered smile” across his abdomen, but we are great full! We are blessed Dr Conflitti was there for us. He went above and beyond our expectations for Jayme’s healing..checked up on him frequently for the first year of it.

Dr. Conflitti replaced my 85 year old mother's hip and did a fabulous job. He is extremely intelligent and has good bedside manner. I was very concerned about someone this age having surgery. Two of my brothers are physicians, and they were also very impressed with Dr. Conflitti. My mother Ann Moran, and our entire family recommend Dr. Conflitti.

Dr. Conflitti and David Dewalch PA were so helpful when I had a knee injury due to a crash. I was seen within hours of going to the south broadway ER and got an MRI the same day. I could not have had a better experience. They were so helpful, caring, and fast. I now have no pain in my knee because of the immediate treatment.

Dr. Confletti repaired my arm after an DV injury. This was many years ago 2007 to be exact. If I’m not mistaken he had to put a metal plate in my forearm because that large bone was broke. He also had to use several screws in my elbow. He was quite caring. The staff was all polite. I had never forgotten him. I recently ran into his business card amongst my things and just so happen I need a surgeon again. I looked him up online and saw that he now does hip and knee replacements. I have scheduled an appointment an cant wait to see him again that is if everything goes as well as it did last time. According to all the reviews he is still an excellent surgeon. Will definitely be posting another review after this visit as I know how important it is to know the doctor that will be doing surgeries on us.
