I'm a martial artist who came to see Dr Curtis for an old right shoulder injury. Dr Curtis explained the pros and cons so I scheduled surgery. He repaired my shoulder which after 4 weeks of surgery I had pretty much full range of motion and my shoulder is better than what it every was. The pain that I had before surgery is gone and the pain after surgery was very minimal. If anyone is looking for a professional shoulder surgeon that knows his stuff, stop searching, Dr Curtis is your guy

This appears to be an orthopedic surgery factory. The staff is friendly, efficient, and relentless in getting your surgery scheduled. In fact, they won't even let you schedule a visit with Dr Curtis for the first time until you've seen his Physician's Assistant and actually scheduled your surgery! Seriously?? I saw the 20-something PA (nice, but could not read an MRI correctly) and then walked. Another surgeon then did my surgery elsewhere, and professionally .

Based on my two complete shoulder repairs, one done in 2009 and the other in 2011, I highly recommend Dr. Curtis. I have complete mobility in both shoulders and I strongly believe my success was due to his expertise. FIVE STARS
