Incredible doctor who greatly helped me. He was my advocate and also listened to every word I said. I wouldn't have wanted my surgery from anyone else. Very compassionate and worked hard to get me back where I was. Best doctor/surgeon I've ever had.

Botched knee reconstruction surgery. Drilled the holes too large to attach the ligaments and using an "Arthroscopic robotic-assisted device for type repair is not protocol for this complex knee surgery" (ACL, MCL, PCL injury). This was confirmed by two other orthopedic surgeons. Encountered an infection and was in the hospital for ten days before Dr. Economopoulous came in to clean out the wound. Will require additional surgeries to correct his mistakes.

Everything from the consult, to pre-op, surgery, post-op, and rehab, was absolutely amazing. He is so kind, considerate, humble and an amazing surgeon. I saw him for my hip arthroscopy and now for my shoulders. He is leaving TOCA for Mayo and I will definitely be following him there.

Great Doctor, terrible office staff- long on hold waits on phone if you even get to speak with someone, generally 30-45 minute office wait times, very poor follow up with messages. Gave MD 4 stars because he doesn't seem to care about poor performance in office personnel.

I appreciated the support and great explanation of what was done with my arthroscopic surgery from his assistant Susan who I praise highly. The surgery went well and now my time to heal. Thank you to both Dr. Economopoulos and Susan.

He was very thorough in his examination of my MRI and gave me information about my current condition that was not given to me by a previous doctor earlier in the week. I felt he was being honest and straightforward with me, as well as being patient. He answered all my questions, of which there were many! I have had to see several surgeons in the last month and he was by far the best in terms of expertise, communicating clearly my situation and having a great bedside manner. I saw him for a second opinion and I am so grateful that I did! He was an answer to prayer! FYI, he does orthoscopic surgeries on hips, but doesn't do total hip replacements. Dr. Feng does that. So you see him first and he will let you know if your hip condition is something he can take care of, or you need to see Dr. Feng for a total hip replacement.

Dr Economopoulos was very understanding, straightforward and easy to communicate with. I chose him due in large part to his dual fellowships in Orthopedics and Sports medicine. His recommended course of action was exactly what I had hoped for which puts surgery as a last resort if required.

Dr. Ecno is amazing and his staff is first rate. I had surgery on the 5 of December and I am feeling amazing. I was told that hip surgery is very painful and the recovery slow. I followed the doctors instructions and I am thrilled to say my range of motion and pain level is gone. If you are looking for a great staff and doctors that really care, then your reading the right reviews. Thank you all so much for making this a good experience. Bravo

Dr. Economopolis is great. He doesn't rush to surgery for the answer to the root problem, but instead tries to see if there are other ways to handle it before surgery is necessary. That is the kind of surgeon I like working with me, one that works with me and my body! ??
