David J. Ciufo, M.D.View Contact & Scheduling
My goals are to help patients return to activities they enjoy, improve function, and reduce pain to improve patient quality of life. Even when surgery isn’t needed, I work closely with our team of physical therapists, expert orthotists/prosthetists, and other physicians to help patients meet their recovery goals. I take pride in my role educating residents to be the next generation of physicians, and in my collaborative work with our team of researchers to help further understand the problems we see every day.
