    Dr Wilson performed rotator cuff surgery on me. I had a large tear. He fixed it and I did great afterward with his direction for my PT. He communicated great with me and explained exactly what he did. Would definitely go to him again.

    Dr. Wilson performed total shoulder replacement needed due to an accident that occurred 25 years ago. Over the years several specialists told me nothing could be done. Dr. Wilson took time to explore the problems and recommend solutions. He restored abilities and quality of life that I’ve lacked for decades. When meetings both before and after the procedure, he clearly explained everything and was always amazingly accessible. Something that sounded "too good to be true" was actually true.

    Dr Wilson is the doctor that every patient dreams they will get, but rarely do. He embodies caring in everything he does! He treats the whole person, listens intently, fully informs-involves you in decisions, empowers you to take back control of your life, and gets to know who you are and what is important to you. His P.A., Meghan and M.A. Adrienne are also awesome! They make an amazing and dynamic team that delivers the best orthopaedic care! His smile can warm a room!
