Absolutely recommend Dr Paulos
Salt Lake City, UT |
I am an avid (6 years/5.11) rock climber. I injured my shoulder and kept on reinjuring it for a year. I was diagnosed with a torn labrum by Dr. Paulos. I was terrified of surgery. Dr. Paulos was very understanding and sent me to physical therapy. I became stronger, not better, and I chose surgery. I am so happy that I had Dr. Paulos fix my labrum. He did a great job-it withstood a car accident 6 months later. I'm very confident that my shoulder is way better off. Really, do your exercises!

Dr. Paul's is a great Doctor. I had him do a Mumford procedure to my right shoulder he has completely taken the pain away. His bed side manner is great. He speaks to you as a friend would unlike most DR. I wish he could be my primary Doctor. This Dr is amazing.

will start off by saying that I was a real patient of Doctor Paulos and that Personally I like him he is a nice guy but after he did a total knee replacement surgery I had to have a full revision surgery of the same knee in only 12 months. The original implants were misaligned causing the tibial plate to loosen. I am not sure where to assign blame was it the manufacturer Conformis or the way it was put in it was a custom made knee implant from a CT scan of my legs. The results are no income for
