Working with Dr Cahill and his staff for both surgeries was a good experoience. My questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner. I have and would continue to recommend Dr Cahill and his staff to others.

The procedure went as planned. The pain following surgery on my left labrum and rotator cuff as well as biceps tendonesis was not as bad as anticipated and dictated to tolerable without medication in 3-4 weeks. A physical Therapy was a lot of work but worth it as I regained most of my range of motion. Dr. Cahill was very professional and clearly described every step of the treatment and recovery. The whole experience followed exactly as he said it would.

Fantastic Doctor. I had a very Thorough consultation and explained my therapeutic options. I ended up having a knee arthroscopy and was back on my feet (and back to work) the next day. Office staff were helpful and very accommodating.

I was very please with my knee replacement that was done by Dr. Cahill. Going to rehab is very important. I did have some scar tissue removed that had build up around the knee, but Dr. Cahill removed the scar tissue and I feel so much better. Thank you Dr.Cahill.

Dr Cahill did a fantastic job. There were a few miscommunications with the staff in the beginning but they were straightened out and taken care of. The surgi center was excellent. The staff there was warm, caring, kind and very professional. The nurses were every thing you want in a nurse, especially Rosa and Dana. I was very happy with this experience.

I have been Dr. Cahill's for a very long time now and I think he is a great doctor. The staff at his office are always very helpful and I've have never experienced any issues with this practice. I had been to many, many orthopedic surgeons before finding Dr. Cahill and I'm so very grateful that I did. I find him to be thorough, knowledgeable, and caring and that is not easy to find. It is not a big practice that is quickly running through patients to pad wallets and I truly, truly appreciate

Amazing Doctor! I recently had labrum surgery done by him and he's done an absolutely phenomenal job. Dr. Cahill from day one took his time to thoroughly explain the procedure and all my questions. He also reached out to me by calling me one day before my surgery to make sure everything was fine. Even after surgery, anytime I had a question he responded to me right away. He's just been great. He sets the bar for what doctor and patient interaction should be like. HIGHLY recommend!!

I had a total knee replacement with Dr. Cahill. His confidence was contagious, it helped me with having a positive attitude towards surgery that I knew I needed, but did not feel I had the time to have. I feel so blessed to have had this surgery. It has given me the opportunity to walk, exercise, do daily living that I had so struggled with. Thank you so much...

I'm an active 73. A year ago while exercising I injured my shoulder. MRI did not reveal any significant damage.He recommended PT and evaluated my progress.I improved slightly. 2nd MRI revealed damage not apparent before. In less than a week, surgery was done. torn rotator cuff, impinged muscle, AC joint, &more. He monitored my PT and within 4 months,I was back to my pre-injure self.Dr. Cahill and his staff are exceptional,skills are outstanding, reputation well-deserved.
