Dr. Weiner's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Weiner "Dr. Weiner has a broad range of clinical expertise. He provides care for patients with conditions and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, knee, and hip regions, utilizing both surgical and nonsurgical techniques. This includes arthritis; ligament, tendon, and cartilage tears; and sports injuries and fractures of the upper and lower extremities. Specific conditions and treatments include arthroscopic shoulder surgery for rotator cuff repair, tendinitis, and instability; arthroscopic knee surgery for meniscus and ligament tears, and arthritis; joint replacement and reconstruction procedures for the shoulder, knee, and hip; and surgical/nonsurgical fracture repair. Dr. Weiner remains on the cutting edge of technology, providing some of the latest state of the art techniques for joint replacement. For shoulder replacement surgery, in addition to the traditional shoulder replacement technique, Dr. Weiner performs reverse total shoulder replacement. This technique, introduced from a long-term successful European experience, has revolutionized the functional outcome for those patients with severe rotator cuff dysfunction, complex shoulder fractures, or failed previous shoulder surgery. Previously, these patients had no adequate medical or surgical solution. For knee replacement surgery, Dr. Weiner frequently utilizes a technique where personalized surgical instrumentation is matched to each individual patient's anatomy. With this technique a preoperative MRI of the knee is used to manufacture a custom bone-cutting guide that is used during surgery. This results in a more accurate fit of the knee implant, less blood loss, shorter operating time, and a knee replacement with potentially better performance and longevity. Dr. Weiner has practiced in the Scottsdale area since 2003 and is on staff at all 3 hospitals of Scottsdale Healthcare and Paradise Valley Hospital. He has served as an orthopedic trauma surgeon at Scottsdale Healthcare's level I Trauma Center. Dr. Weiner's mission is to provide excellent and compression patient care. He values his relationship with his patients and encourages ongoing discussion so orthopedic conditions are understood and treatment plans are decided together."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Weiner "Expertise, compassion, and excellence in Orthopaedic care: this is the mission I have for every individual I encounter in my practice. I aim to personalize each person's orthopedic needs with their personal lifestyle. My approach is to safely return individuals with musculoskeletal injuries or problems to as high a functioning and productive level as quickly as possible. I believe in fully informing my patients of their orthopaedic problems and providing information so these problems are understood. I encourage patients to particpate with me in deciding on treatment plans when multiple treatment options are available and reasonable. Forming and maintaining relationships with my patients is important to me. My staff and I strive to maintain open lines of communication with our patients and facillitate timely responses to questions from patients that may arise. In short: your care is our greatest concern."

Had a Hamstring Injury where I tore all the muscles from the bone. Dr. Weiner was extremely informative about the procedure I was having done and the follow through to recovery.

Dr. Wiener performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee. He did a terrific job a I had very little paid during recovery. I was up a walking right away and after a couple of weeks I feel way better in the knee than before the surgery. He is an excellent doctor.
