Got my shoulder function back!
After being told I needed a total reverse shoulder replacement, I got a second opinion from Dr. Cunningham, who offered an alternative of biologic treatment which he said could offer me a 70% chance of relief for a year and a half to two years. He was completely open about costs, expectations, and the procedure. He performed an extraction of my bone marrow cells, processed them in the office, and injected it in my shoulder (about an hour). I can now take a full swing on a golf ball, can cast a fishing rod, and can be active at the gym, without pain, for the first time in 5 years. All at the age of 75! I can't recommend Dr. Cunningham highly enough. He is professionally beyond competent, he listens, sets very reasonable expectations, and is very easy to work with. His staff is highly supportive, and my recent experience with him was the easiest I could imagine.

Ongoing issues with right knee due to OLD sports injuries. Looking for treatment options as opposed to knee replacement. Outstanding interactive visit with Dr. Cunningham with an agreed upon treatment protocol.

Dr. Cunningham performed a meniscus repair and prp injection. My recovery was very fast and easy. My knee has never felt better. Dr. Cunningham spent a lot of time with me in my appointments, thoroughly explaining his plan, my options, and recovery. He really is a fantastic surgeon, and he and his staff are very kind and professional. I had a great experience and trust him implicitly.

3 months out from shoulder surgery with stem cell treatment. Could not be happier and would highly recommend Dr. Cunningham for this type of procedure.

I ruptured an Achilles Tendon just before Christmas. Dr. Cunningham was able to fit me in before New Years. He prescribed PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy at the time of surgery I did not know what to expect so the good results I obtained were either a good Physical Therapist or great genes. But, I had injured my knew at the time I ruptured the Achilles. This time we decided to just try a PRP injection. The results were very quick! And what a difference. I've got motion on the knee that I haven't had for years. There's still some pain but with all the arthritis this knee has I'm not surprised. I've known Dr. Cunningham from my son's sports injuries but now he's my Ortho Dr and will stay that way. And you've just got to try the PRP. This is a great office with really good support personnel. I was able to establish and excellent rapport with the staff and Dr. Cunningham. The key has been the trust and value that they have built into the relationship. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

The initial thought was an 80% rotator cuff tear. It ended up being 100% and I needed smoothing of bone. Dr. Cunningham gave me great info and took the time to explain what was going on. I had PRP in my hip earlier in the year. I took his advice and did it with my shoulder, also. The physical therapist commented that my recovery was *way* beyond normal and after five weeks I already have 100% range of motion over my head. Angelique, Bill, and Sergio (his staff) have been helpful, professional, and always willing to answers questions and explain the procedures.
