Patient Stories

Thomas A. Martinelli, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can...recommend Dr. Tom Martinelli as your primary go-to-guy for any acute joint pain. I have visited Dr. Martinelli for many years for many sports or work around the house minor injuries where I have injured a joint or muscle and the pain would not go away. I have received arthroscopic surgery on my left knee for a minor injury to the joint that would not heal. The surgery went great. Months after healing I am pain free and I can not even find the incision through which the surgery occurred. On all occasions Dr. Martinelli has always had a personal side of connecting to me as a person. I was not only a knee or a wrist or an elbow. Without jokes being exchanged, he displays an intrinsic sense of humor that is just him which I have always appreciated as his manner of expressing that he cares for people.
