Dr. Dean Ziegler repaired my massive injury involving 2 torn rotator cuffs and a torn labrum. He was masterful in his surgery by the fact that I have returned to great functionality. He is very busy but took the time to explain what the surgery would entail and listen to my concerns. I would not wish this type of surgery on anyone because of the post operative pain but to get great results, I would highly recommend Dean Ziegler as a surgeon.

Dr Ziegler is a total rockstar in the field of orthopedics! I couldn't even write my name because of the damage from a fall. He repaired my rotator cuff and elbow all I. The same day and his prescription for the Joints in Motion chair had me moving my arm immediately after surgery. I'm 9 weeks out and can lift my arm over my head and behind my back in any direction without going to physical therapy because of a great surgeon and that chair that had me moving my arm at home right after surgery!!!
