Patients Speak Their Mind
I met Dr. Paulos in 1990. I had fallen on my skis and slid 200 feet. In addition to a shoulder dislocation, I had a Hills-Sachs deformity and Bankart fracture. I was convinced that I needed an operation. Dr. Paulos told me that I could rehab the shoulder and do well without surgery. He accompanied me to the physical therapist and showed me and the therapist the appropriate exercises. I never did dislocate the shoulder again and recovered well. Dr. Paulos operated on my other shoulder 16 years later. Despite visits to several different physical therapists, I am still doing exercises that only Dr. Paulos has demonstrated. Both shoulders continue to do well. I feel quite fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Lonnie Paulos
Howie Garber, MD, Emergency Physician
Dr. Lonnie Paulos performed an ACL knee surgery on me from a skiing accident. I was told about the experience I would be having from him in detail. What the operation would entail, what the process when be for my physical therapy and when I would be able to get back to skiing. In every aspect of the pre-surgery, surgery and the post-surgery I have been 100 percent satisfied with the skill Dr. Paulos operated and the outcome. He is the best orthopedic surgeon in this Country. I have healed properly and I'm active in many sports in my 50ies. I run into people all the time that tell me they are suffering from knee operations. My first question is always, who was your Doctor? My thoughts when they tell me about their doctor is normally the same; why didn't they chose Dr. Paulos and be where I'm at today. I'm Active and healthy after knee surgery! I truly think he made the difference from what kind of lifestyle I'm living today. Thanks Dr. Paulos for giving me my active life back again!
Dr. Paulos did surgery on my right shoulder and it was like a miracle. I now need to see him again for an unrelated problem. I look forward to another miracle. I would recommend him to everyone. And, yes, I have seen other OS with disappointment, but not Dr. Paulos.
