Dr. Vitello as heard on the Medical Minute on WBBM
“I just wanted to express my utmost gratitude having the privilege of being under the care of Dr. William Vitello, for not one but two very extreme injuries. I endured a fairly devastating left wrist injury back in 2014 and pretty much shattered it. The injury was extreme but I was quite fortunate that I ended up under Dr. Vitello’s care, as today I am able to enjoy almost 100% full motion in my wrist, despite the severity of the injury. I had two surgeries in the process; to implant two medal rods, one being temporary and therefore required a second surgery to be removed. Both surgeries went off without a hitch, as well as the healing process. Dr. Vitello is extremely knowledgeable and his confidence feels very reassuring while I was going through these difficult and vulnerable times. Fast forward 6 years (November 2020) I sustained a severe fracture (almost a full break) of my right radius in a bicycle accident. Due to some issues with my health care provider as well as the extensive pre-op process imposed by COVID-19 restrictions I ended up having to wait 12 days to have the actual surgery, but I was determined to be under Dr. Vitello’s care; and to my benefit, once again Dr. Vitello executed a perfect surgery and my recovery time was far quicker than what I initially expected. The healing process was indeed a very challenging one because it was my dominant hand/arm and there was a roughly 6 inch metal permanent plate set in place; I was looking at a lot of time and therapy. I had some serious concerns about the potential outcome of my recovery, however Dr. Vitello kept me inspired and motivated with his style of encouragement and technical expertise. I was extremely diligent about following his post-op instructions and therapy, and much to my delight not only did my arm heal perfectly but it did so in far less time then expected. On top of everything else both injuries (2014 and 2020) took place in the winter time, yet I experienced almost no cold irritation from the metal implants. Dr. Vitello is someone who I will hold in high personal and professional regard as I truly believe that he is at the pinnacle of his medical specialty; his organization runs a highly efficient operation and I will/would recommend Dr. Vitello to anyone and everyone in this situation!!! Thanks for everything!!” – Dejan S.
