I had a severe bunion, which I tolerated for 20+ years. When I finally decided to have it corrected, I spent months researching orthopedic surgeons, procedures and outcomes. I found Dr. Ellis to be the absolute expert, most experienced and skilled surgeon based on his medical research and surgical experience. His practice is incredibly well run, responding to my questions with thorough responses, always same day. I traveled from Connecticut to New York for the procedure and follow-up, and it was truly worth the investment for what I deem the best possible outcome! I never imagined that 15 weeks later I would already be hiking and walking daily. Highly recommend Dr. Ellis, Stephen Costigliola and his practice!
