Excellent Doctor. He has reworked both my knees and a foot on my son. He is extremely thorough and is always looking to make the patient comfortable. He also is aware that medical treatment is not cheap, so he is open to assist in finding the best prices for labs and X-rays. I recommend him if you have pain.

My daughter had been suffering for years with hip pain. We had taken her to NUMEROUS doctors and NONE could give a diagnosis/treatment that relieved the pain. We were finally sent to Dr. Tessier (after seeing another orthopedic doctor two years prior). He examined her and immediately thought she had a torn hip labrum. He scheduled an MRI with contrast ( prior doctor had not). He called me personally and told me he was right! He did the surgery the next day! She’s been pain free since!

Doctor Tessier is one of the most talented orthopedic surgeons in the country. His experience in dealing with high end athletes in particular makes him an expert. He is on the front edge of new procedures and pushes the athlete to come back much quicker than previous rehab techniques. He explains the surgery and what he is doing so it is easy to understand. Bottom line is you can not find a better orthopedic surgeon in the country. Plus the staff at the hospital was the most friendly staff!!

So far Dr. Tessier has been direct and informative and helpful. The video was good but I didn't see how he would actually fix the tear just the impingement so I will contact the doctors office before surgery.
