Patient Comments (2)
Honolulu, HI |
I was in a car accident that left my knee in very poor condition. I spoke to 2 surgeons before Dr. Nipper who both said that the repairs were beyond their capability and one even went so far as to say that amputation was a possible outcome. Dr. Nipper reviewed my case and met with me offering a very different outcome, he was certain of near full function. Well, he was completely correct. After just 2 surgerys i had a fantastic recovery. 16 years later I am doing very well.
in Andover, mn |
Dr. Nipper performed 4 surgerys on me in 1 year shoulder surgery, and ulnar nerve transposition surgery after accident, and becacse of my polyarthritis and other chronic nerve problems dr. Nipper also perform carpal tunnel release and the other ulnar nerve transposition, I plan on having dr. Nipper do my other shoulder severely arthritic and also other nerve issues, I know dr. Nipper is a great surgeon and I will have him do my future surgeries and I am thankful
