FRESNO, Calif., March 1, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Dr. Michael Nuzzo was recently named one of the three best orthopedic surgeons in Fresno by Three Best Rated®. Dr. Nuzzo faced a rigorous 50-point analysis in order to receive this competitive award.
Dr. Nuzzo is one of only a few doctors in the region who is Fellowship trained Sports Medicine-Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Nuzzo always says, “I specialize in sports medicine, but I treat athletes of all ages. The goal is to get athletes of any age back to the activities they like to do.”
Dr. Nuzzo recognizes the need for innovation in the delivery of great care. His practice incorporates many procedures on the cutting edge of orthopedic medicine.
He is one of a select few orthopedic surgeons in the region who perform hip arthroscopy, a procedure used to treat damage of structures in the hip. Dr. Nuzzo explains “It is a same day procedure that is minimally invasive, has a relatively easy recovery, and is very effective for people with hip pain.”
Another procedure Dr. Nuzzo frequently performs for shoulder pain is called Arthroscopic Superior Capsular Reconstruction. Some patients with chronic tears in their rotator cuff tendons are unable to have them repaired. Rather than replacing the shoulder, Dr. Nuzzo uses arthroscopic technology to place a graft in the shoulder to duplicate the function of the rotator cuff tendon and improve function. Dr. Nuzzo explains “Where patients used to be told they had to deal with their pain with medications, now they have another option.”
Three Best Rated® rates businesses on a rigorous 50-point system to deliver the top three business in each category. Businesses cannot pay to be listed, which means those listed had to prove themselves through their work and community relationship.
