I selected Dr. Norberg due to a shoulder issue that I was having. He was highly recommended as an excellent practitioner of shoulder/orthopedic injuries/issues. Since initial visit to my last post-op visit, I found him to be very knowledgeable, highly skilled, very personable and caring.

I really liked the attention Dr. Norberg gave to me on Monday 1-10-22 I am an 85 year old who took a fall and needed to see the Orthopedic Dept at West Health for my fractured shoulder. He was very respectful and I will be going to PT starting 1-21-22.

Had a tear in my rotator cuff repaired by Dr. Norberg. Surgery went smoothly and I had minimal pain afterwards. I did follow advice to ice the area frequently which really helped. I did my PT with TCO and have had a complete recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Norberg for any shoulder work.

Two years ago I saw Dr Norberg with a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder. I have had zero issues with it since his repair. So, when my right shoulder experienced the same problem, I of course went back to see Dr Norberg. My surgery and recovery have been exceptional under his care. He is a fabulous surgeon, listens to you and answers all questions you may have. He does not make you feel rushed. I would highly recommend him to any friend or family member

Dr. Norberg was absolutely the best choice I could have made for my rotator cuff surgery which was performed in August 2020. He and his staff at TCO were fabulous. Dr. Norberg's talent in reassembling my shoulder with perfect placement of the reattached tendons leading to a full recovery in 8 months - ahead of schedule. It is important to remember to do all of the care and physical therapy at home to get this kind of result. His coaching and professional guidance lead me to this wonderful shoulder repair! I would recommend him to any one seeking excellent care.

Dr. Frank Norberg is one of my favorite physicians. Besides being very kind, funny, and intelligent, he listens and seems to know exactly where or what medical problem I'm discussing. He can point to something exactly, with out trying to feel around for it. He explains x-rays better than other doctors. He gives me confidence in healing and restoring my "best self". I highly recommend him.

I was referred to Dr Norberg because of the severe posterior wear to my left shoulder. We discussed a normal reverse shoulder replacement normally done for severe wear like mine, but I told him that the 10 pound weight limit was far too restrictive for my life style. He then suggested a new style of wedge-shaped implant that was designed specifically for severe wear. It was a joy to see his intellect at work as he used the software to custom design and order the parts to fit my body based on my CT scan. The surgery went very well Oct 2019 and this last year of recovery has shown consistent improvement. As of my 1 year anniversary he tells me that I have exceeded all range of motion and strength expectations. I have ridden my Harley Ultra over 2,700 miles. I have done full days of manual labor and have even been able to lift my wheelbarrow over my head to hang it on the wall. I could not have imagined a better outcome. His intellect, skills and bedside manner are the absolute best.

After several years getting Cortisone shots in my right shoulder, I decided to find an Orthopedist recognized for the success on repairing shoulders. In my web’s research standing out was Dr. Frank B. Norberg. I got immediate access for the first appointment with plenty flexibility for the ones to follow. Meeting him and his entire team was an excellent experience. The communication at all levels was extraordinary; from the telephone attendants, receptionists, nurses, PT personal and Operating Room’s personal, I found excellent care to solve my problem. From the first appointment to the very last one Dr. Norberg exceeded all my expectations, my Rotating Cuff was fully repaired as he described, with almost no discomfort. His patience and communication abilities are OUTSTANDING. I am 70 years old fully recovered and thankful to him and the team hi has chosen.
