I fully tore my ACL on the proximal end and Dr. Iyengar repaired it using a cutting edge internal brace procedure. I could not be happier. I still have my own ACL, reattached, my proprioception feels exactly as it did before the surgery, and best of all, I was back to work as a firefighter 23 weeks after I tore it (20 weeks post op). Torn September 16, back to work February 25--that's just over 4 months. A Kaiser surgeon told me I would be out for a year before I heard about Dr. Iyengar.

I was very impressed with Dr. Iyenger from the moment I met him. He was very attentive and listened to me about my shoulder issue. I had my steriod shot yesterday and is I will be doing physical therapy which I feel will help. I also like his nurse Simon very much and he also makes me feel comfortable. They make a great team. I am looking forward to seeing him again for follow-up and feel I have made a good choice in picking Dr. Iyengar for my shoulder needs.

I have seen Dr. Iyengar multiple times with great results for a minor surgery on my knee and procedure on my shoulder. He's a gifted surgeon and excellent diagnostician. This gentleman will give you positive feedback and all the time you need for your questions. I feel truly blessed to have him as my ortho-specialist.

Dr. Iyengar performed two very critical surgeries on me. My right humerous bone fractured badly after doing radiation for cancer and tumor then the left humerous bone fractured a month later. Dr agreed to perform the surgeries after studying and researching the severe facture. Both arms had titanium rods placed in the arms during surgery. I am now healing very well and I definitely know it is because of the excellent professional care I have received and still receiving from Dr. Iyengar.

He is very kind and listens and answers all my questions very thoroughly. He has good ideas and offers different methods for my problem and has a vast knowledge of what is avaiable and might work. His nurse, Simon, is fantastic as he is careful and explains everything so I understand all actions, very knowledgeable and very good rapport. I highly, highly recommend both to all potential patients!
