Dr. Swanson is wonderful! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I was back to normal after my rotator cuff surgery in about 2-3 months. Great care by Dr. Swanson and great care by my physical therapist Adam Endress.

I work in a physical therapy facility and see many of his surgeries. He’s by far one of the best doctors we have encountered and all of his patients have returned to full duty or activities with no issues. Not only do I see his patients in our clinic, but I was one of his patients. Dr. Swanson repaired my labrum and did a bicep tenodesis on my left shoulder. I am an extremely active person who loves to workout 5-6 times a week and run Spartan races. Before surgery my shoulder would hinder my wor

Dr. Swanson was a god send. I had my surgery done about 2 months ago. I have to say that with this being my 3rd and hopefully my final knee surgery it has been a smoother recovery. Absolutely amazing staff. Kendra is a amazing and very knowledgeable.

Dr Swanson did a full replacement of my right shoulder joint and removed a significant bone spur. After 88 days I was easing back into tennis. He assessed my problem accurately, used great technology and executed the surgery beautifully. Simply put, he knows what he is doing... and he is a nice guy!

Getting my shoulder back to me was very important as I needed to return to the work force asap! Dr Swanson went over all the options & gave me his opinion on what he thought was wrong. He was 100% correct & surgery went way beyond my expectations! One week short of 2 Months I had my shoulder back. I highly recommend Dr. Swanson! 5 stars doesn't come close to cover this Doctor!!

Dr. Swanson did a great job on my knee. I had a bucket-handle meniscus tear and I was back to 90% within 2 weeks and 100% in 6. Thanks!! Oh, and Kendra's the bomb!
