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. You may learn more about me or my practice by visiting our website at: www.advancedortho.net.

Patient Comments (19)
San Antonio, TX |
I drove from Kalamazoo to have Dr. Farjo perform my hip surgery. Then I drove back the next year so he could repair the other one. Most likely, due to Dr. Farjo's care, I won't have to have a hip replacement.
Whitmore Lake, MI |
Incredible how organized and professional the office staff operates. Seriously, I have never seen a more organized doctors office.
Pontiac, MI |
Dr.Farjo is known for his ratings and numbers and it's quite clear that is all he is concerned about. He talks about his success rates for the majority of every appointment I have ever had and if he feels your case could ruin his "perfect" numbers he wants you to go elsewhere.
Dearborn Heights, MI |
Dr. Farjo was recommended by my family doctor for shoulder repair (I have had both right and left sides). My surgical outcome has been excellent as I have regained 95-98% of my range of motion and strength in both shoulders. I had confidence in the entire treatment process due to Dr. Farjo's expertise and ability to explain the procedures involved. The surgical and medical support staff, the administrative staff, and the hospital (Providence Bone & Joint Center) are among the area's best.
in Fenton, MI |
Dr. Farjo and his team did an excellent job addressing my needs throughout the entire surgical procedure. His bedside manner was outstanding. I was very comfortable talking with him. He took time to know you to select the right plan for my situation. He clearly explained what was going to occur at each step of the process in terms easy for me to understand. He listened and answered all my questions. His support staff also was very attentive and professional. The post op care and PT was great.
in Northville, MI |
i'm a poster child for stem cell transfer therapy. your staff was excellent before surgery and the staff at Novi was equally excellent. i personally have lauded my experience with at least a dozen folks who are looking to do something about their aching knees. sincerely, Jerry Pazdan
in Pinckney, MI |
Dr. Farjo performed surgery for both my knee and my shoulder within a 2 year time frame. Both situations he spent time trying to correct issues without rushing into surgery. I appreciated that he did everything possible before resulting in surgery.
in Brighton, MI |
It may sound a little strange but these people have this system down so well that it looks more like a car wash! No guess. Everyone knows the how what when and where like clock work. My first procedure the day after my 71st birthday. Wouldn't have done it any other place. Great Team!
in Livonia, MI |
Dr Farjo did a meniscus repair and stem cell injection on my left knee. Whole procedure from initial visit, pre-surgery, surgery, and post-surgery was top notch! Highly recommended.
in BrightonMI |
I was very pleased with him. It wasn't clear what my hip issue was at first, since I have arthritis as well. He pin pointed the tendon problem. A minor surgery has helped. Staff very pleasant.
Pinckney, MI |
Everything about Dr. Farjo, his PA and other staff was a very pleasant experience. The care and interest shown was second to none.
in Pinckney, MI |
Dr Farjo took me,at the age of 61,from despair over a broken shoulder to swimming 1000 meters of backstroke in 24 minutes-I am an open oceam water swimmer-he saved my life by giving me my ability to swim back-he is outstanding!-the entire experience was helpful,hopeful, and he is the most caring physician I have ever encountered-he listens to his patients'
in Howell, MI |
I can not say enough great things, to describe Dr. Farjo's talents! I've hurt for over a year, after Dr. Farjo performed surrey on me, (He also repaired additional items when he was in there, that he also noticed) By the second - I had no more pain and even stopped any and all pain medicine! Wow - he is one of the very best surgens out there! Just ask me and I'll tell you! Thank You Very Much! Rich Minix
in Dearborn, MI |
Start to finish it was great
in Macomb, MI |
I cannot say enough about Dr. Farjo and his staff to express their excellence! Dr. Farjo has a genuine concern for ALL of his patients. I am an RN and I'm extra critical of how the patient and family are treated and I was paying attention. He is kind, very knowledgeable and very good at explaining every nuance of care he is directing. He's prompt, courteous to the point of being humble and is rare to find in this field anymore. I'm proud to say I am a patient of Dr. Farjo's!
in Howell, MI |
I would highly recommend Dr. Farjo to anyone seeking out medical help! I have already referred him to countless people thus far. He did an excellent job on my shoulder, along with several other family members of mine! He is a very nice guy and incredible doctor!
in Durand, MI |
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.
in Brighton, MI |
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.
