“I am very happy I sought treatment at Excel Orthopaedics for my knee pain. Dr. Vezeridis diagnosed the torn meniscus and fully explained my options. He performed the meniscectomy and I can see the improvement. Unlike any other surgeon I have had before, Dr. Vezeridis called me the next day to inquire about my pain level and how I was managing. Impressive!”
“I am a patient of Dr. Vezeridis with major shoulder work being done. I very much appreciate his patience and steady approach to resolving my return to good health!!”
"My surgery was performed by Dr. Peter Vezeridis for a tibial plateau fracture. From my first meeting with him he really explained the injury and recovery time and answered all of my questions in great detail and patience. They are very knowledgeable, professional and they took great care of me. My experience at Excel could not have been any better and I am very grateful. Thank you!"
