Dr. Swanson gave me my lifestyle back. After visiting another orthopedic surgeon in the area (different clinic) who told me that surgery would not help my knee and I just have to live with it, Dr. Swanson did arthroscopic surgery, cleaned up the menicus and bone spurs, and I'm back to downhill skiiing, snowshoeing, and long-distance cycling. I am can't begin to express my gratitude.

My very favorite doctor. I consider him to be a mark of excellence! He has performed 3 joint replacements on me with are far better than ever expected; left and right shoulders and right knee. I had a hip replacement prior to finding Dr. Swanson and it was not as satisfactory as the replacements done by Dr. Swanson. I highly recommend him and his group and have referred friends to them.

I saw Dr. Swanson over this last summer (2017) for knee pain, Specifically, I injured my knee skiing in the earlier months of the year. After initial exam and factoring in variables (age, X-rays) He and his staff quickly developed viable options for repair and recovery. After trying the easy stuff first we ended up scoping the knee to repair the torn meniscus. Dr Swanson and his staff were amazing through the whole process!

Kyle Swanson does what is right for the patient and does not rush to operate unless it is truely needed. He is very thorough and patient and you never feel rushed when seeing him. I have 100% trust in his judgement, knowledge and surgeries.

I'm sure somewhere there is better! But in my personal experience, he has been better than ANY Orthopedic Dr I have ever encountered. Two of my Daughters also had excellent results. And two of my co-workers as well. All recommended by me..

I was extremely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Swanson. His knowledge and expertise are extremely apparent and he is flexible and compassionate. He was able to work with me with a difficult schedule and situation, when he could entirely choose not to be so understanding. I used him as a second opinion from another doctor with less experience and he diagnosed a torn ACL in my knee that was completely missed by another provider. I am eternally grateful for my experience with him.

A world-class, brilliant surgeon who cares deeply about his patients. I'm a graduate professor of education and paddle-sports athlete in my 40's. He's done all 5 of my shoulder surgeries; I'd recommend him to anyone in the world seeking excellence in orthopedics - worth the trip to Tahoe! Having a surgeon I trust has been priceless. I've had some major shoulder work done & have made a more than full recovery back to the sports and activities I love. Put your trust in Dr. Kyle Swanson!

Our family highly recommends Dr. Kyle Swanson for orthopedic sports injuries. Two of my four children have seen him for sports injuries and I will not hesitate to send the other two, if injured . Dr. Swanson performed surgery that repaired my son's hamstring, as it had detached from his pelvis. Thanks to Dr. Swanson, my son is running full speed! Our appointments were scheduled quick and we spent very little time in the waiting room. Staff is welcoming and friendly!

Terrible experience. I never healed correctly. I was competing professionally as a skier and never felt confident enough after the surgery to compete again. I had ACL/ meniscus repair in 2014. 2 years later I re-tore everything Kyle had "fixed", and was told by my current doctor that it was repaired very poorly and that is why it snapped so easily. Now I am going through TWO knee surgeries to fix what he did. After my recent surgery with Dr Cooley in Utah I am now healing incredibly fast!
