Care Philosophy

I listen carefully to my patients and do my best to hear the problem as it relates to their life. As an orthopedic surgeon, it is my job to reduce pain and maximize function, using my knowledge, experience, and technical skill. I strive to educate my patients with an understandable, non-technical explanation of the diagnoses and treatment options. If a condition is outside my scope of practice, I will find a doctor that can help.

I recommend you find another doctor. Dr Surdyka performed 2 procedures on me: my knee- zero improvement. My thumb - worse after A-1 pulley release. I recommend you do what I'm doing- find another doctor.

Dr. Surdyka and his staff are wonderful. He has been taking care of my sons' football and wrestling injuries throughout their high school years. He is always available and very easy to talk to. He genuinely cares and isn't quick to suggest surgery unless it is the only option. I highly recommend him and see him as well for my own orthopedic needs when necessary.

He was very nice, He listened to my mom was very professional . The office was very clean. The staff was super sweet. Always smiling I would recommend him
in Hanford, CA |
I broke my tibia and fibula playing roller derby in December of 2013. I had a displaced fracture that required admitting to the hospital and surgery. I am a registered nurse and familiar with how health care should function. Dr. Surdyka was assigned to my case. He was rude and would not answer my questions. He made fun of me to the nurses at the nurses station and told them I was stupid for playing roller derby. I fired Dr. Surdyka and was very happy with that choice.
