Curriculum Vitae

Patient Reviews

Dr Caputo is great. We’re an active family with an unfortunate history of injuries.  Needless to say we know our share of orthopedic surgeons. I’d highly recommend, Dr. Caputo and his team not only because they’re experts at what they do but because they go that extra mile to make sure you know what to expect, but for being realistic and honest about outcomes that aren’t always favorable. Can’t say enough good things and would recommend the whole team.
