Dr. Lawson was very open and honest about the shoulder procedure. There was some pain after surgery but things began to feel much better within a couple of weeks. I was told that there would be pain and I appreciated his honesty in that regard. My shoulder is much better post surgery and is improving every day. Really enjoy his personality and frank conversations. All of the staff that I was in contact at LOC were very nice as well.

Dr. Lawson performed an arthroscopy on my right knee recently and did an outstanding job. I was barely able to get around and am now walking with ease. He was very informative and really took the time to answer any questions or concerns my husband and I had. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Lawson was informative, helpful, and even funny. He performed arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery using a hamstring graft in my left knee. I do have some numbness from the surgery in a small area of the front face of my shin, but I was warned that this could result. It does not bother me. His humor helped relieve some of the stress I was feeling. If I lived closer to Lincoln, I definitely would try and return to Dr. Lawson to reconstruct the ACL in my right knee. I still might.

Dr Lawson replaced my left shoulder on dec 18, 2014. He did an excellent job and I am thrilled with the results. I have much more range of motion and ability to use the arm than I exoected to. Of course the excellent physical therapy with Exstrom Physical Therapy after the surgery certainly played a big part in getting me back in shape. I am very grateful to Dr Lawson and his excellent staff.

He was very professional and even though he told me a diagnosis that I didn't want to hear, he explained it very well.
