Dr Arvidson recently performed a total hip replacement on me. As I was in my late 30s, and had never had surgery before, I was nervous about the procedure. Dr Arvidson's calm demeanor, and expertise, helped me make decisions that worked best for me. I'm now about 2 weeks post-surgery, feeling absolutely great, and moving better than I was pre-surgery on my bad hip. Thanks Dr Arvidson!

Dr. Arvidson helped me with my shoulder pain. I had several tears and after he gave me an injection, the pain was eased for a long time. He does not recommend surgery unless it is truly necessary. He has helped me, my husband, my brother and several friends (including our PCP). I just made an appt. with him for my wrist. You can't go wrong with Dr. Arvidson. We are grateful to have him here without having to go into Boston. His office staff are very nice, especially Kathy.

Dr. A repaired my teen athlete daughters torn ACL and did a great job - both pre-op and post-op. Was always available by phone and would even call after hours if we had questions. Would highly recommend Dr. Arvidson!

Dr. Arvidson replaced both of my knees and the level of care he provided was exceptional. He took the time to explain the surgeries, what I could expect during my recovery after the surgeries, and made certain that I was connected with excellent rehabilitation services. My surgeries took place without a hitch and my knees are doing great. For the duration of my experiences with both knees, I always felt that I was in the hands of a highly skilled, caring surgeon and a genuinely nice person.

I just had my second knee replaced by Dr Arvidson. Stopped painkilllers after 3 days postop, same as first knee . Started outpatient PT 7 days postop, leg at zero degrees straightness, 94 degrees bend. Second knee I did preop PT, big difference in recovery. I have been recommending the doctor to my friends

My bunion surgery for both of my feet by Dr. Arvidson was a experience of total satisfaction. The first consultation, the professional staff, and the post op follow up were all exceptional. The ease of the surgery information given by Dr. Arvidson erased all of my anticipation and anxiety by the time I met him the second time. I am so happy to have my feet without bunions and I am already in my normal shoes after 3 months.
