Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Luessenhop did my shoulder surgery..ended up with 6 repairs instead of the 2-3 he first thought. He has always been fantastic, great personality and bedside manner. Explains things, answers questions and concerns. I would highly recommend him.

I have had two experiances with Dr. Luessenhop. Shoulder and elbow. Both times he corrected my issues. Both required surgery. I would not think twice about seeking him out for any other issue that comes up. I am writing this after being fully healed and able to return to my active life style!

He isn't scared to go with the assessment. If you have any questions about your decision and his he is willing listen. I'm going to have surgery on a hip kinda scary but I am at peace with God! I'm at a cross road so it must believe in him. Saint Francis and the Warren clinic wouldn't let him...more
