Nancy L.

Dr. Gulli just performed my second total knee replacement which was a huge success, as my first surgery.  Dr. Gulli and his entire team have always been extremely professional and always available to answer any questions I may have. I participated in the EXCEL Program, allowing me to know before surgery what my total financial obligation was. Also it was wonderful to receive one bill for all of the costs. I was transported to Interlude and was extremely happy with the care of the RN and PT while staying there a very short time. I would highly recommend Dr. Gulli and his team.

I have had both knees replaced by Dr. Gulli. Both surgeries were highly successful and I have gotten back to my normal routine less than two months after my most recent surgery! I can’t thank Dr. Gulli and Margaret Baranowski enough for giving me my life back! Sure, it’s a hard surgery to recover from, however, if you stick to the exercises and PT, you will have an amazing outcome! Oh, and it helps to have a positive attitude, as well! Thanks, too, to Dawn, Patient Care Coordinator. She completes the team of Gulli/Baranowki!  I am most thankful and grateful to them all!

I can’t thank Dr. Gulli and his team enough for replacing my hips and taking great care of me. I can now walk my dogs pain free! I have recommended him to a number of people. Thank you Dr. Gulli and team!

I first met Dr. Gulli in 2008 as I had a major MVA in which I suffered femur fractures to both legs, a broken ankle, a severely damaged left ankle, a broken nose, and several lacerations.  Dr. Gulli was called to perform my surgeries on my femurs and ankles in the emergency room.  It is now 2016 (8 years! WOW!) and I have healed very well and quickly due to his amazing work.  I was told I would not walk without help for up to 12 months, but I was up and walking in 3 months with cam boots and a walker.  I have rods in both legs from hip to knee and hardware in my ankle as well and I have had no issues with the hardware at all.  I had my arthroscopy in June of 2016 due to torn meniscus and misaligned knee cap.  I am healing well with that as well.  I praise him for the work he did for me, he made it so I was able to walk again after several months of PT but I did it!  Dr. Gulli is very patient orientated and is thorough in what he does.  I feel comfortable going to him and will recommend him to people in need of orthopedic care! Great doctor, great surgeon, and great facility!

The surgery went well; the recovery was complete, even though I did not complete therapy or exercises except for a lot of walking. The entire staff at TCO was professional and helpful from beginning to end. I have, and will continue to recommend TCO to others.

This letter is to verify my feelings about my recent complete shoulder replacement operation which you did for me on July 16, 2014. I must tell you that this has to be one of the finest pieces of work you have ever done on a shoulder replacement!! I would give you an A++ as a grade for the work you have done on my shoulder!! As of 2 days ago – 2 weeks from my operation – I can do so very much with my right hand, and arm that it is hard to believe. I can dress myself completely, tie my own shoes, button my clothes, eat meals, (can’t cut meat yet), shower, shave, wash my hair with both hands. I have very little pain from my shoulder area, and can only take Tylenol Extra Strength tablets, as I am allergic to Morphine and all its derivatives, which are the generally accepted pain relief tablets. All in all, Dr. Gulli, as I say again, I am so very pleased with the results of this operation on my shoulder, and want to commend you on such a fine piece of work, and Thank You for doing this great a job on me!!
