I wanted to take some time to thank Dr. Sabonghy for the excellent surgery he performed on my right shoulder. Before the surgery I could not raise my arm up over my head without excruciating pain. It got to the point that I could sleep at night so I went to Dr. McDonald in Angleton and he referred me to Dr. Sabonghy. It was determined that I need a shoulder joint replacement. It has been almost two years since my surgery and my shoulder feels great. I am able to do the things I did when I was yo

Dr Sabonghy is a amazing Dr. I broke my upper arm in half. I went to 2 other Drs for 5 months trying to find someone that could do surgery on my arm. The first Dr pulled my arm to grow back together and it didn't work. He didn't want to do surgery on my arm originally is because the radial nerve could be damaged and effect my hand because I'm a hair dresser it grew back very crooked. Dr Sabonghy rebroke the arm and the radial nerve was between the two bones and he saved my arm and hand.

Had surgery on my left shoulder a few years back and it is better than ever. My physical therapy was complete in less than 8 weeks with full range of motion. With the amount of work he had to do it should have taken closer to 12 weeks. He gives honest answers to your questions. Reason why I am writing this so late is my right shoulder is now bothering me and I am about to make another appointment.

Dr. Sabonghy repaired my meniscus tear 11 months ago. I do not have any more issues with the meniscus but I have not had a pain free day with that knee since the surgery. Dr. Sabonghy did not have an answer to the pain that I experienced following the surgery. At first he said it would take three months. Then he said it would take six months. Then he said maybe a year. I am worse off after the surgery than before. Plus, he wanted me to pay for the followup visits due to the pain he caused.

Even though Dr. Sabonghy is a surgeon, he seeks conservative treatments first - after 2 knee & 1 shoulder injury, I've never had to have surgery. He explains everything in language that non-medical professionals (like me!) can understand. Also, I've seen another doctor in his practice for an issue outside of his specialty, and he's checked up on me when he's seen me there even though it's been over a year since I saw him. It just goes to show he truly cares about his patients!
