I had a serious? shoulder injury while skiing. I saw 2 other surgeons who told me that I would have to live with pain and dysfunction. I went to Dr. Tella for another opinion. He was kind and caring and he explained my condition and options in a way that other surgeons didn't. I underwent surgery reconstruction by Dr. Tella and my shoulder is PERFECT. I highly recommend him.

I thought I was in great hands . I'm post op 8 months and I still can not lift 5 pounds with the arm he worked on . Than he cleared me for regular work which is 30 pounds . Please if your on work comp find a different doctor. He never even did a closing exam on me . And closed my case before I was even stationary . Which has now caused a huge mess . I'm lucky my job found a place where I can fold laundry . which is still to much . But better than being homeless . Do not use Tella.

My experience with Dr. Tella was amazing. I had ripped the rear horns of both meniscuses on my left knee. Dr. Tella diagnosed the problem and I was in surgery eight days later. Right now, I'm two months out and my knee feels fantastic ... no pain and feels like new. I would highly recommend Dr. Tella to anyone.

My experience with Dr. Tella was amazing! I needed left knee ACL surgery. I had the same ACL repair surgery in'97 on my right knee with a different surgeon. I was traumatized from that experience. It was horrible! I was hesitant and nervous to have the same surgery again. I voiced my fears to Dr. Tella. He was very comforting and reassuring. Then the surgery he did on my knee was SUPERB!! I experienced a 1/4 of the pain as in '97 and my recovery time was 3 Xs as fast!! I'm still amazed! Great!

Well I lost my balance and fell with all my body weight on my right forearm and heard Abundance of crunchy sounds in my shoulder. MRI didn't show any thing he thought it would be a simple bone spur removal n clean up. It wasn't. I tore a rotator cuff and two other muscles in the upper socket I tore both of these muscle and detached one or bot muscles from the upper arm bone besides the clean up and removal of bone spurs. I told him I terrible pain and I was right I hurt myself again here we go!
