Wish there were more stars to give Dr. Uggen and his staff! Husband had torn miniscus fixed last year after being told he needed a complete knee replacement. Just went back to work after having the other one fixed earlier last week. Dr. Uggen is a hero in our eyes!

Dr. Uggen and staff are amazingly thorough and totally up to date with the latest techniques. They prepared me every step of the way for the pre & post op experience. Please be advised that if you are going for a hospital stay, make sure the hospital staff & PT understands and communicates with the Dr.

I was 53 years old when I contacted Dr. Uggen about my right hip. My hip had deteriorated due to arthritis and needed replacing. After doing some research on my own, I discovered Dr. Uggen is one of the few doctors who practice the anterior approach which can reduce recovery time. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. There was no pain and I was walking with assistance just a few hours after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Uggen and thank you for restoring my way of life.

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Uggen 4 days ago and it is amazing. Still have some soreness from the incision(operation), but very little to no pain in the hip. The caring and skill provided by Dr. Uggen and his staff is outstanding and I thank them all very much. Richard Boyer

I would highly recommend Dr. Uggen to anyone looking for a compassionate and competent physician. He listened to my full story and after my exam he took the time to thoroughly explain my condition and treatment options. I left my appointment feeling understood and prepared to take the next step towards healing.

Dr. Uggen & his staff are outstanding! He was on target with his approach to caring for my fractured foot, There were no unrealistic expectations set. I am very pleased to say, my fracture has healed in the length of time that Dr. Uggen said it would. He is currently working with me on some old knee issues & there is no other Orthopedic doctor I'd rather work with! He is the best! I am extremely thankful that my primary care Doctor recommended Dr. Uggen.

Found Dr. Uggen on the channel 6 news special on hip replacement. I had been going to Ortho West in Council Bluffs Ia and wasn't happy w/my out come. Dr. Uggen did my surgery 6/16/-15 of last year. My surgery started at 8am and I was walking w/o pain at 3pm, the next day I went home. The only pain was the IV needles going in and the bandage on my leg coming off...He is AMAZING!!!

Dr Uggen is an excellent Orthopedic Dr and is very knowledgable and confident. He is skilled in the latest techniques and has many differing approaches to each patient's needs. He takes the time to explain any diagnoses with the patient and involves them heavily in the decision making process as to approach and treatment. He is a very committed and inspiring physician. I am very happy with his treatment.
