Dr. T. is amazing - he is very knowledgeable and compassionate. I do not think you could have a better doctor for his specialty. He is conservative and helps his patients find the most effective while least invasive answer for their situation. A great primary care once told me - "If you ever need to go under the knife - make sure you have a surgeon that cares about his/her patient" Dr. T. is such a surgeon. His immediate staff - such as Kayla his PA are super too.

Dr. Theodore is definitely one of the best orthopedic surgeons out there. If you are in the Boston area, go the extra mile to book an appointment. I had ACL reconstruction surgery done earlier this month and am absolutely 1000% satisfied with my procedure. I believe Dr. Theodore goes the extra mile to listen and dedicates all his efforts to each patient. The day of surgery, Dr. Theodore came to speak with me at 6AM - I was told by the anesthesiologist most doctors do not show that early to prep.

Dr. Theodore is the best of the best. Noone can beat his diagnosis and outcomes as the celebs and athletes can attest.

Went to see for second opinion and am very glad I did. Reasons for needing surgery were very sound. Healing is progressing very well.

Dr. Theodore revised my reconstructed ACL October 3rd. The visits are on time and the staff are professional and efficient. Dr. Theodore explained preop, postop procedures and answered any questions. The surgery went better than I expected and the results are better than the reconstruction (done by someone else ). He is a very skilled surgeon that is passionate about what he does, cares about his patients and their outcome. Dr. Theodore is a 1st class doctor and MGH is 1st class hospital.

Saw Dr Theodore in 2010 for a torn tendon in my ankle. Surgery ensued and all turned out great. I love this guy. He's patient, thorough, and listens. He never makes you feel like he has to get your visit over quickly, always makes you feel like you are his most important patient of the day. Now I'm back to see him again for a possible torn meniscus. I'm so glad I have a relationship with Dr Theodore and that I have the utmost confidence in him.

I had been seeing Dr. T. For my ankle. He explained things well and thoroughly. I had a follow up appointment. The weekend before appointment a knife fell and cut my leg. I went to a nearby hospital 3 times because it wouldn't stop bleeding, they & said it was fine. When I went to Dr T on Monday for my scheduled appt. for my ankle he asked about the bandage & if he could take a look. Long story short, I was operated on two days later because my tendon was 98% torn and ready to snap!
