Highly recommend Dr. Jon Swenson. He did arthroscopic surgery on one knee and also recently did a reverse total right shoulder JOINT replacement. He gets an A+ from me for all his work from the beginning of the process to the end.

Dr. Swenson has a great bed side manner and took plenty of time to answer all my questions at my first appointment. I had been seeing another physician and came to Dr. Swenson for a second opinion. I am so glad I decided to make an appointment. I am now 2 months out from my total knee replacement and I am feeling better than ever. Thank you Dr. Swenson for all you did for me!
