Due to a crash, I had two torn rotator cuffs, a broken humoral head, and a displaced bicep tendon. Dr. Walker had no trouble making a quick, accurate assessment and scheduled me for surgery 3 business days later. The surgery went very well, and I have totally healed with no side affects. Dr. Walker and his nurse Bree are great at answering any questions. Make no mistake, though. As good a surgeon as he is, he can only put you back together well. Recovery is dependent on your own dedication.

I had my 1st visit with Dr. walker on 8/5/16. I was in severe hip and groin pain, caused by inflammation, according to my PCP. Dr. Walker was amazing! He ordered X-rays of the hips and knees right then, which revealed a slight hip problem. I was in total panic, as I was leaving in a week for a trip to Europe and was terrified that I wouldn't be able to walk without pain. He was so kind and did the injection yesterday and I am almost 100% pain free! He's my hero!

Dr Walker has replaced both my knees. I tell everyone that he is the only orthopedic doctor/surgeon one should go to. Dr Walker takes time to answer all question. He doesn't just run in for 5 minutes and runs. He is always there when you need him. Very important when your in pain.
