I have had two surgeries and everything went well. Now I have frozen shoulder. I am hoping the exercises he gave me to do takes care of it. Very friendly, not arrogant. Listens to your problems and explains things so that you can understand. D. Croy

I've gone to Dr. Maender for several things, and he has done two surgeries on me. He also realized that elbow pain I had had for six months was not from the elbow, but from my wrist. He saved me more useless elbow injections and fixed my wrist. He's also easy to deal with, as are his staff.
