He is an extremely poor historians! He doesn't look at the entire picture, to determine the best outcome for YOU. He claims to be a " guru " and the best hip arthroscopy Doctor. I was very active and in extremely good shape, until he operated on me. He damaged me more, only to need a hip replacement. I'm not only in severe pain, but dying. I will never see my daughter graduate. I don't want this ever happen to anyone. Do yourself justice, DON'T have him operate on you or any love one!

With 2 rotator cuff tears, a SLAP, and a severely frozen shoulder, Dr Elder made me feel completely supported in my lengthy recovery process. As far as the surgical aspect of my experience, at McDowell OR, fantastic. Didn't get in for awhile, but neither did the next case. My MRI showed an external tendon tear, no other results! Common arthroscopic procedure for Elder, approximately 1-2 hours, I was under close to 4hrs. Sorry to whoever had to wait. Elder = Competence
