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 his non invasive approaches first philosophy, as so many surgeons seem to rush you to the table. I am so glad he was the Dr. that I trusted!

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.

After being in the medical field for 50 years. I know good work when I see it. I had extensive foot surgery. When I didn't see any bruising, black and blue, the day after surgery. You know Dr. O'Brien knew what he was doing. I went to 3 different Dr's. They didn't know what to do. It took Dr. O'Brien 20 minutes to decide surgery was needed, after seeing the X-Ray.

He is an amazing doctor who is very thoughtful and skilled. He was able to diagnose my problem and get me on the right path to healing. He does not jump to surgery as the first treatment option. I would recommend him to anyone with an orthopedic problem.
