More about Dr. Venuto
I was born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My father always talked about moving to California but didn’t want to leave my grandmother, so I decided to give it a try.
I decided to become a doctor at a very young age, let’s say roughly 7 years old. I come from a family of doctors who inspired me; my father, my uncle, and my godfather. I was and continue to be very sports-minded which attracted me to orthopedic surgery and I’ve never looked back. Orthopaedics is a specialty that is forever changing which continues my interest to this day.
I believe the most important factor in the doctor-patient relationship is communication. I feel it is very important for a patient to understand their diagnosis and to understand my recommendations as far as treatment and my reasoning for that treatment. Once we have that established I know that we will get the best possible result.
I enjoy taking care of people because when you make someone better from whatever their malady, you feel better. And there is no doubt in my mind that it’s what keeps me motivated.
My hobbies and activities revolve around sports, I am an avid golfer and I am involved in spectator sports of all kinds. I also enjoy spending my free time with my wonderful wife Wendy.
My sister, my brother, my brother-in-law, and I have had arthroscopic knee surgery performed by Dr. Ralph Venuto. All have had excellent results and have had no problems. We all did exactly what we were told to do after surgery, ice machine, CPM machine for 10 days followed by physical therapy. By doing what the staff instructed, we all had great success.
I like Dr. Venuto’s quickness, there is no hesitation in his decision-making or his actions. He knows orthopedics so well he doesn’t have to stop and think. He answered all my questions and concerns immediately. I so appreciate the wisdom that comes with age.
He keeps himself in excellent physical shape and up to date on all current medicine. I hope he keeps on this path because I’m going to need him down the road.
Dr. Venuto has practiced orthopedics for over 45 years. One doctor performing thousands of procedures on thousands of people, I so appreciate his knowledge and experience.
Thank you Dr. Ralph Venuto and staff for my health, for the health of my family and for a better life.
Our team of experienced orthopedists cares deeply about your care.
