I’m in the mend thanks to a fabouluus surgeon who I would recommend to anyone and his anestesiolosist he uses dr Armen was amazing as well ????????Great team work

Doctor Abboudi is an awesome doctor. I had thumb surgery and it hurt badly afterwards but he warned me. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. He explained in great detail. Very kind and very compassionate. One thing I will say, if you have thumb surgery and he tells you it’s a year to recover, believe him and don’t rush the healing process. I made the mistake of over using my hand too soon. I cycled and swam and just never rested my hand. As a result, my recovery took longer. I’m finally better.

Dr. Abboud thoroughly provided information about the condition of my shoulder. He clearly explained all of the options available to help me make an informed decision about my care. He listened to my questions and concerns as well as my thoughts on which option I thought was best for me. I highly recommend him and his team Karen Martino

Dr Abboud did a major repair to my right shoulder rotator cuff. Aside of a pleasant personality, he did a fantastic job and my shoulder couldn't be any better.

I really appreciate the exceptional orthopedic excellence Dr Abboud has brought to my shoulder replacement and the follow up care needed. I've returned to normal activities without any issues.

I am a very active tennis and platform tennis player, and I have had both a major shoulder reconstruction (7 years ago) and most recently a Torn tendon repair on my right elbow. In both cases Dr Abboud was able to get me back on the court and able to resume play at the same level I had prior to my injuries. I could not be any happier with his attentive care, expertise and follow through.

Excellent physician, I had a total joint replacement of the left shoulder and had no problems during or after surgery. My medical history is complicated, and he took the extra steps to ensure the best possible outcome.

I consulted with Doctor Abboud about possible rotator cuff repair. Doctor Abboud was completely straightforward in telling me that at my age and with accompanying arthritis in my shoulder, only a shoulder replacement was indicated. When I told him that I was not ready for this, he advised a return to physical therapy and continuing exercise at home. He was right. Despite a few twinges on occasion, my shoulder has held up well. Should I need that surgery, Doctor Abboud will certainly be my choice

Dr. Abboud diagnosed my frozen shoulder problem within minutes of my entering his office. He was efficient, gentle and respectful. He offered a few recommendations on different ways to deal with the pain, leaving the choice to me. I was skeptical that my shoulder would heal without physical therapy, but Dr. Abboud did not recommend it and encouraged me to have patience. I have to admit that my shoulder is gradually feeling better each day. Thank you Dr. Abboud for helping me!

Extremely good outcome following repair of my severe rotator cuff injury. He was engaging and provided realistic information as to postoperative and recovery expectations and time table. He answered all questions patiently.

It's been over a year since Dr. Abboud repaired my torn rotator cuff and I'm still unable to throw a curveball. Then again, I never could. But at least I'm pain free. Thanks doc.

Dr. Abboud has the reputation of being one of the top shoulder specialists in the world, and he did an amazing job repairing my torn labrum and getting me back to 100%. I feel stronger now than ever before. He was very professional and understanding of my situation and gave me great advice.

Have done so in the past and would do it again if the opportunity came up. Both my husband and I have been back to see him for various shoulder issues and have had excellent care in the hands of Dr. Abboud. Have had excellent results with the treatment recommended and provided.
