Dr. Bowen has fixed a torn meniscus in both of my knees. With my recent surgery I was off the pain meds the first day after surgery and back to full mobility with 10 PT sessions. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I never experienced problems in scheduling appointments or waiting a long time before an appt. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

I had a full rotator cuff tear with my bicep literally hanging on by threads. While it was a fairly obvious diagnosis once into the surgery he found more damage than the MRI had shown including a badly torn bicep which he completely fixed to perfection. Everything was thoroughly explained to me before, during, and after the surgery. He actually went the extra mile to take extra precautions to respect my tattoos. Everything healed up better than ever with no noticeable scarring incl my tattoos!

This was my second surgery with Dr. Bowen and my experience was equally wonderful. From initial consultation to final post op visit Dr. Bowen and his staff (Karla/team) always had my best well being in mind. Dr. Bowen always gives you an honest and straight forward assessment and you always feel you are in the hands of a great surgeon. I hope to be surgery free for a long time, but if I need to again Dr. Bowen is my first choice!! thank you Doctor!!
