Dr. Tu came highly recommended from a close Physician friend of mine for being a skilled surgeon. I needed a fairly complex surgery to reattach my torn biceps muscle. The surgery was successful and Dr. Tu explained everything including post-op procedures in detail and communicated frequently to check my progress. I am extremely grateful of the results and the lengths Dr. Tu went to make my injury recovery smooth and successful.

Over a year ago I fell on some ice which resulted in a tear of my rotator cuff. I was unable to lift my arm up to my shoulder. Dr. Tu described mine as a massive tear. After my MRI and my first visit with Dr. Tu he prompltly scheduled surgery. It took 3 pins to put my rotator cuff back together. After the surgery Dr. Tu made sure to get my physical therapy scheduled in a timely basis so that I could begin to use my arm again. Dr. Tu's bedside manner was always very reassuring and he showed great concern for my progress in healing. His office staff was always very friendly and everyone in the practice is concerned with your well being. Over a year later I have complete use of my arm with no pain or restrictions. I can swim, play golf and have done remodeling work around my house. None of this would have been possible if it had not been for the great work that Dr. Tu did on my surgery. During the entire course of my treatment he always made me feel as if I was his most important patient

Dr. Tu is AMAZING! He took a 60 year old arm and after having total rotator cuff surgery put it back together again. My arm is completely healed. His ability to understand his patients, listen to his patients, and provide the needed support and knowledge is truly remarkable! I have recommended him to many people because he is such an excellent surgeon. I thank God every day for Dr. Tu!!!

I have had knee pain for over 15 years and every physician I went to about the knee said, "well if you lose weight your knee will feel better". Dr Tu was the first to offer an alternative, which has made me pain free since July. He injected a lubricant in my knee that has allowed me to walk longer, play volleyball again and just be more active. He is very patient, explains things well and is thorough and kind. It is rare to find an excellent orthopedic surgeon with a great bedside manner.

Dr. Tu is the most compassionate individual I've met when it comes to Dr's. He's very knowledgable and listens to what you might know as well. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Tu His first priority and I do mean FIRST priority is the healing and wellness of his patient I truly could go on and on about him. He's genuinely a nice individual who just happens to be a Dr. What a blessing! Dr. Tu repaired a major tear in my husband's rotator cuff after a bad fall. He's incredible!! Love him

Dr. Tu operated on my meniscus 11/2 years ago and I just saw him for a broken bone in my ankle and foot. He is fantastic. He's very thorough and spends a lot of time with his patients. My surgery had a wonderful result. I was back exercising within 6 weeks. I'm sure treatment for my broken bones will be just as successful. Also, wonderful office staff. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Tu is very friendly and takes the time to explain things to you. He operated on both of my shoulders, one when I was 15 and the other when I was 20. I was able to be a softball pitcher again and continue to be so active with no limitations. I recommend Dr. Tu to everyone!

Dr. Tu spent extra time with me explaining the procedure and even gave me a personal phone call. Most importantly, his surgical technique allowed me to get up and running again with minimal pain and down time.
