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.

Steve B. – Oct 08, 2020
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.

Christie L. – Jul 22, 2020
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.

Todd – Feb 11, 2020
I have had persistent left knee pain for years and after 2 meniscus repairs, I decided to seek treatment from a different provider who might be willing to treat my knee with something other than meniscus repair surgery and/or steroid injections. Dr. Cunningham injected my own stem cells in not only my joint but also my tibia and I am literally pain free for the first time in 10 years. Will I do it again? For sure. Will I eventually need knee replacement? Probably, but until then, I will come back to Dr. Cunningham since he helped me so very much.

C.S. – Jan 10, 2020
I have been a patient of Dr. Cunningham for over 20 years as he's operated on both of my knees. His skills as a surgeon led me back to him this past January (2019) after a bicycle accident. I injured my shoulder and was diagnosed with a massive rotator cuff tear. A few weeks later, Dr. C performed a four hour procedure to repair the tear that included the insertion of a cadaver patch in my shoulder. The operation appears to have been a success as I have regained most of my range of motion, and my strength training is improving weekly. The severity of the cuff tear and delicate nature of the surgery resulted in a careful recovery regiment in order to let the patch and cuff heal properly. My physical therapist Heidi (at Arise Austin Medical Center) has also been great and very instrumental in my recovery. Needless to say, I'll continue going to Dr. Cunningham any and every time I'm injured and need surgery.
