Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

As a sports medicine specialist, my goal is to return athletes of all levels to their desired activity level. I have particular expertise in arthroscopic shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow reconstruction. I am a firm believer in trying non-operative treatment first, but if that fails, there are usually very successful minimally invasive surgical options for a patient. I utilize the latest and most technologically advanced arthroscopic techniques in performing my surgeries to allow patients to return back to their lives as quickly as possible, with the least amount of pain and scar tissue. Having performed more than 10,000 arthroscopic procedures, my patients typically have much less swelling and pain post-operatively. We also utilize the latest technologies in our office, including ultrasound, fully digital x-ray, and a paperless digital medical records system.

Dr. Fargo ruined my knee. My knee cap is off center and can never be corrected. I lived with constant pain for 18 months before I could find somebody who would try to un-do the damage he did . He also left something behind-- something blue that no other doctor will discuss. The original surgery was 18 minutes long. The repair was an hour and a half. A miserable experience all around. And, yes...we discussed this in his office, on the phone and in a heated discussion with my PC.

Farjo performed meniscus tear surgery on my knee. Shows you a video in office of his accolades. Pushed form to "rate" him even before surgery. Day of surgery I waited 2 hours for surgery with a port in my hand, wisked patients in and out like an assembly line, surgery took 8 minutes. My leg swelled up 3 times the size. A year later my knee has more problems than when I went in. I cannot squat or put any weight on my knee. Crunches every time I walk.
in Birmingham, MI |
Two highly-recommended Beaumont doctors indicated that I needed a hip replacement. However, Dr. Farjo performed arthroscopic surgery, and I continue to participate in endurance sports, completing three Ironman distance and other long-distance races since the surgery.
