I went to Dr. O'Brien as a second opinion. I ended up having him do the surgery on my ankle. He was excellent and my recovery has been better than expected. I would highly recommend him as a surgeon who does what needs to be done, but doesn't use surgery as a first line of defense. I appreciate...more

Very professional, good bed side manner, instilled confidence in the procedure. I never doubted that he would deliver good results. He offered options and let me choose w/o applying pressure

Dr. O'Brien listens to your concerns and truly tries to help bring you to a pain free resolution. He preformed surgery on my foot and I'm very pleased to be almost completely pain free just a few months out.
