Stephen F. Scarangella, M.D.


Practice Philosophy


Dr. Scarangella believes strongly in resolving each patient’s problem, where possible, with conservative, non-operative care. He utilizes problem specific treatment plans, individualized for each patient.


When conservative care either fails to solve the problem, or is not indicated, he utilizes expert, evidence based minimally invasive reconstructive surgical techniques along with early, aggressive postoperative rehabilitation with an experienced rehab team to restore form and function to his patients.
