I am not a doctor person but Dr Birdsong and the Allegheny Health Network may have changed that. Had my surgery today for trigger thumb and he and his staff did a phenomenal job. Thanks for a job well done . . .

I found this doctor to be very knowledgeable, compassionate and so caring. I spent a year going to another physician after falling on my cement porch and even going through microscopic surgery for a so-called frozen shoulder. That doctor never prescribed an MRI until a year later, he read that and never mentioned my damaged shoulder. I received a print out describing all the damage, si I made the appt. with Dr. Birdsong and 4 mos. later am enjoying amazing results. Thank you Dr. Birdsong....

Dr. Birdsong is THE absolute best! He did total shoulder replacement surgery on BOTH of my shoulders AND carpal tunnel surgery on BOTH hands. The surgeries went so smoothly and I was virtually pain free immediately after surgery. Dr. Birdsong takes his time explaining the surgery, will put you at ease about the surgery time after time even on the day of surgery. I cant recommend Dr. Birdsong enough to anyone contemplating any kind of arm/hand/shoulder surgery.
