Dr. Nicholas J. Violante

Dr. Nicholas J. Violante

A graduate of Saint Vincent College and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Violante joined Excelsior after completing a joint reconstruction fellowship at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. 

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.
