Care Philosophy

Excelsior Orthopaedics believes every patient deserves to receive the finest musculoskeletal care in a compassionate and professional atmosphere. We are dedicated to create individualized treatment plans for all our patients and their families. We treasure our relationships with patients, families, referral sources and the community.

All members of our fine staff are guided by these values:

Every patient is somebody's mother, father, sister, brother, grandparent, child, or close friend. We care for all patients as if they were members of our own family. We respect people's time and care-giving responsibilities and are poised to assist in any way we can. We are proud of our staff and the years of education and training they have secured to make Excelsior Orthopaedics a true Center of Excellence.


Dr. Violante specializes in the treatment of hip and knee conditions, with expertise in total joint replacement...including, revisions to previous total joint procedures. He has extensive training in the use of minimally invasive joint replacement procedures, such as, anterior hip, which minimize the risks of "traditional" surgery and focuses on getting patients back to their normal routines quickly.
