Patient Care Philosophy

“I believe in providing quality, state-of-the-art health care for my patients, but in a way that ensures patients feel involved and understand everything we’re trying to do to improve their quality of life. I truly feel that people recover faster and have greater results when they are active participants in their care.”

“The thing I enjoy most about orthopedics is fixing things. I take great joy in improving the quality of life of people who come to me with severe problems. Helping them regain the level of activity they previously had is a great feeling, and I enjoy making a positive difference in their lives.”

- Dr. Joseph Puccinelli

Area of Specialty

“My primary focus is general orthopedic problems, with the expressed goal of relief of pain and restoration of function for my patients.  I perform many types of general orthopedic surgery, with a particular interest in sports medicine and the treatment of sports-related problems, especially knee ligament reconstructions. I also provide minimally invasive total knee replacement, which utilizes the same, time-tested materials, but uses much smaller incisions, reducing pain and recovery time.”

Personal Interests

“I love being outdoors and am an avid fisherman. I get out on Wisconsin’s lakes and streams as often as I can.”
