After careful research, I met with Dr. Kersten and agreed to an MRI on my left shoulder due to enormous pain from a shoulder injury. After reviewing the MRI (and sharing it with me), Dr. Kersten showed me bone spurs, arthritis, and bursitis issues that needed to be addressed through laparoscopic surgery (three, 1/2 inch incisions). It has been three weeks and my range of motion has increased to near normal and my pain has decreased dramatically. He's an honest and highly qualified surgeon.

Dr. Kersten did my shoulder. He is a competent, very thorough physician, & very nice. He lets you know what you can expect before- during & after surgery. I had three visits with him before surgery, he always asked if I had any questions for him. He explains everything so you completely understand. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Kersten & Staff for excellent care. Great group of people, great teamwork, & very professional. Your kindness, & attentiveness are very much appreciated.

I suffered a nearly complete quadriceps tendon tear above the knee on the golf course. Very painful. After emergency room care, X-rays and an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Kersten. The surgery went as planned and I was supplied with a brace that immobilized my leg but allowed for limited range of motion movement as post operative physical therapy progressed. I am now transitioning off the brace on schedule. I highly recommend Dr Kersten.

i was very pleased with Dr. Kersten. I had shoulder surgery done by him. He and his staff were there to guide me every step of the way. They took the time to sit down with me and answer any questions I had about my surgery and what would happen after. They even helped with filing Insurance! This is a great group of people and very professional. Thank you Dr. Kersten!
