Dr. Ma replaced my right shoulder 3 years ago with no problems/complications; that is why I had him replace my left shoulder 2 months ago. From my perspective an excellent surgeon.

I saw Dr Ma to address my ACL tear. After visiting him and his team, I opted for reconstruction surgery. I have been nothing but impressed by him and his staff. He's very personable, responds quickly, and performed excellent work. I'd highly recommend him if you're ever in a position for this type of surgery or treatment.

Was made to wait an hour after my scheduled appointment time and still no consult. This is more of a reflection of the administration than the physician but it still needs to be stated.

Dr.Ma listened, answered my questions in a thorough, unhurried manner and gave me the confidence to reach a decision about a surgery which, arguably, could be considered voluntary if I hadn't been concerned with returning to the level of swimming which I have enjoyed. He went over MRI and X-rays with me, drew diagrams, used a model of a shoulder, all to further explain what and where my injury was and the procedure needed to repair it.

It has been such a pleasure to have Dr. Ma as my surgeon. He was attentive and helpful throughout the entire process. I even joked with my husband that I have never had a surgeon actually take as my time as he did. In fact, at one point before surgery on a Sunday I wrote a question for someone to respond to, totally assuming I would hear that week. Dr. Ma responded within the next few hours. He also seemed genuinely happy when my surgery hadn’t turned out as invasive as first expected.

Dr. Ma is clearly a very experienced and professional surgeon. He was supportive and personable. His thorough understanding of my condition, and the direction he suggested for the best possible outcome were spot on. I am grateful to have had his help, and I feel confident that Dr. Ma and UCSF were clearly the best possible choice and option in my time of need. Thank you Dr. Ma and UCSF staff!

I travelled 2500 miles for shoulder surgery by Dr. Ma and it was well worth the effort. His whole team provides the most professional and efficient care I have ever experienced.

Dr. Ma was so successful on repairing my left knee ACL that, two years later, I do not hesitate on having my torn right knee ACL repaired by him. He is professional, kind, knowledgeable and caring. He and his team are fantastic.

I was blessed to have Dr Ma. He knew what needed he saw the complete problem. To have replaced my shoulder and not seen the torn rotator cuff I would have ended up having a second surgery and still not be able to raise my are. Dr Ma knew I needed a reversal replacement and he did an excellent job. He done a shoulder block and my pain has been very little. I’m so blessed I used him. Thank you Dr Ma.
