Described my issues, took x-rays, then showed x-rays on large screen to be able to point out the issues. Took time to explain and possible follow up procedures.

I am so very pleased with the outcome of my knee replacement surgery. Dr Balldin is not only an excellent surgeon, but he is so kind and caring. I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends. Thank you, Dr Balldin! It was my lucky day that I met you! Susan Meurer

Dr. Balldin is an excellent doctor. I’ve been through two knee surgeries after a devastating injury and am now back to sport. I’ve also gone to see him for foot injuries and every time he is thorough, considerate and I always feel like my concerns are being truly addressed. I’ve recommended Dr. Balldin to everyone I know with a knee injury!

Dr Balldin comes with my highest recommendation. He did an arthroscopic procedure to remove about 25% of my medial meniscus. I had less irritation and discomfort the day after surgery than the day before. Kept it cool and elevated for the 1st 48 hours, no pain meds or crutches needed at all. Back to office work on Monday after surgery Thursday morning. Outstanding results and back to my normal workout routine 3 weeks post surgery. Dr Balldin did a great job and extremely happy with results!!

Dr. Balldin is a gifted physician. He was not in a hurry to do surgery. He tries conservative methods first. He talks to me on my level so I understand what's going on. He is easy to talk to and I can tell he really cares about me. I didn't want to have surgery, but it was needed. Just before my surgery, I told him to do his best. His response was "I always do". I don't regret the surgery at all. I never thought I would have use of my shoulder again but I do! He did a great job!

My first appointment was very good, he explained everything, the procedure, the recovery time, what to expect. The procedure was scheduled and labs offered to be completed before I left, so that I would not have to make a second trip back before surgery. The entire staff were very friendly and helpful.
