After four failed surgeries on my left shoulder I was given the recommendation to see Dr. Elhassan. Let me tell you that was the best recommendation I ever got. He is a first class surgeon. I highly recommend him. His bed side manner is excellent.
Rochester, MN |
Dr Elhassan eased my daughter's fears of her imminent shoulder surgery. He has a kind way about him. He explained the procedure to me and then explained it in language my 12-year-old could understand.

Superb orthopedic surgeon
in Cedar Rapids, IA |
Dr. Elhassan changed the quality of life for me. The time, care, and compassion he has is impeccable. His bed side manner is awesome. If you have any orthopedic surgery where this man is an option you would be wise to pick him. I can heap enough compliments on this man.
Chanhassen, MN |
Dr Elhassan is blessed with a mind and hands which I believe are guided by a higher power. He cheerfully engages with his patients, explains what is causing the pain/anomaly, and how the procedure will be performed - in layman's terms. His insatiable appetite for knowledge and teaching is unsurpassed in the medical community. His matching orange glasses, tie, and shoes happen to be my favorite - but the purple ones aren't bad either.
