Patient Comments (4)
in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania |
Dr. Abboud treating my adhesive capsulitis, which had been treated but unresolved with non-surgical intervention for 2 years. He was frank about expectations both pre and post surgery with an approach I found refreshing. While a top surgeon, he definitely lacked, which is a GREAT THING, the pretentiousness and arrogance that often seems to go hand in hand with top surgeons. I would recommend Dr. Abboud to friends and family as he truly is a wonderful realistic doctor.
I came to Dr. Abboud with a failed surgery for a proximal humerus fracture where the hardware failed, the bone did not heal, I had additional bone damage and significant scar tissue. Other orthopedic surgeons recommended that I have my shoulder replaced which did not make sense to me. He recommended that I have revision surgery, bone grafting from my hip and a longer plate put on. Success! His follow up care has been excellent. Nice, humble guy. Highly recommend.

Excellent all around,

After 2 failed rotator cuff surgeries by other surgeons, Dr Abboud attempted a repair on my right shoulder. Seven months after the surgery, my shoulder is getting stronger and my therapy is progressing slowly, but it seems to have solved my problem o pain and range for the most part.
