I have been seeing Doctor Schaaf for over 5 years due to an arthritic shoulder condition. I received cortisone injections until the pain and loss of function led me to decide to opt for full shoulder replacement surgery. I shopped around trying to find the best physician and turns out that I already had one of the top rated guys. Surgery went very well and I'm 3 months into recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Schaaf and his team. If I have to do it again then I know who I trust.

I believe Dr. Schaaf is a gifted surgeon. He has performed two rotator cuff repairs for me. Both resulted in greater joint stability, less pain, and greatly increased mobility. Shoulder surgery is notoriously complex, and rehabilitation is most often painful and lengthy. In my case, there was minimal pain after surgery, and rehab was far less painful than I expected. I credit Dr. Schaaf's surgical technique with my results. He and his staff are cordial, bright, welcoming, and experienced. They inspire high confidence. I couldn't be more pleased.

Dr. Schaaf is awesome to say the least. He fixed a grade 5 AC joint separation in my left shoulder 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier. I have full and total confidence in him and reccommend him highly. Matt Boren

I’ve had several misfortunes of breaking both femurs and shoulder. Dr Schaaf was on call when each accident happened. I couldn’t have been luckier to find the best orthopedic dr/surgeon around. Such a great doctor. Keeps putting me back together. I am so grateful he was on call when I had my first accident. Office staff is awesome as well. Highly recommend.

Excellent doctor and practice. He and his staff responded quickly to questions I had. I had a fall and needed an orthopedist. I called his office on Monday morning, saw him Monday afternoon and surgery was scheduled for Wed. Things were done quickly and efficiently. If I left a message on the portal in the morning, I had an answer within an hour or so. My surgery was successful and I have had an uneventful recovery. Would recommend him highly!
