From there he went to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center for his orthopedic residency training. He remains associated with St. Josephs through a teaching affiliation as an Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopedics. He enjoys teaching and working with these young surgeons in training. Dr. Pizzurro is married and is a proud father. In his free time he enjoys hiking and professional sports. He is also a wine enthusiast. He is especially excited to establish his practice in Bergen County where he was raised and his family still lives. He enjoys using his skills in the community such as his relationship with Bergen Catholic High School where he is an orthopedic consultant.

"Excellent. Great experience. "

"Terrible! This was a revision so I am certainly familiar with the procedure and recovery time etc. Three times Mark asked me if I was sure I wanted to have the procedure after I had already agreed to it. The third and final time was one hour prior to entering the OR! To say I was shocked would be an understatement! Why would he ask yet again one hour prior to surgery? It was an omen - he clearly was apprehensive about something to have asked not once but three times! Needless to say the revision has now failed yet again but Mark insists there is nothing wrong even though it has now been 4 months post op and I am unequivocally worse today then I was prior to the initial failed replacement - rather than investigate and search for probable causes, why the pain has never abated and I can no longer walk more than 15 minutes - my ankle now hurts as much as my knee because my gate is off - he insists I'm wrong! Whatever he feared all along obviously came to fruition. I finally walked out of ...
his office after I was also kept waiting for an hour as per usual. His bio falsely claims he cares - the only thing Mark and this practice care about is money and racking up the number of procedures it does. Even the surgery was 3 hours behind schedule - never ever use a large practice or you'll become a number rather than an actual patient. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
