Wildwood, NJ |
Repaired a very large and difficult complete tear of rotator cuff. Complete repair very competent especially for more complex repairs.
in Norristown, PA |
Dr, Joe Vernace (who replaced my right knee and right shoulder) referred me to Dr. Lazarus when I went to him with a crippled left arm. I saw Dr. Lazarus twice: Before a CT scan; and when I brought a CT disk. During both visits, Dr. L clearly explained my elbow condition, based on the information he had, and discussed options and possible outcomes. I came away content that wait and see is best for now because my elbow is still stable - and glad he's there if/when I need an elbow replacement.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Lazarus and his team at Rothman. I had a total shoulder replacement. Dr. Lazarus was totally upfront with me from the get-go about the procedure as well as the recovery process. The whole pre and post surgery process was amazing. My only regret is I wish I would have done the surgery much earlier given the ease and success of my recovery. Overall, the care was highly professional and I highly recommend Dr. Lazarus and his team at Rothman.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I needed shoulder surgery and was introduced to Dr. Lazarus through a friend. It was the best advice I received, the office was nice and clean, the staff was friendly and Dr. Lazarus was great. He looked at my MRI and determined that I needed Rotator cuff surgery. The surgery went well and after a few months of therapy I am completely healed. I would recommend Dr. Lazarus to anyone needing elbow or shoulder surgery
in Medford, NJ |
Dr. Lazarus explained in detail the surgical proceedure, how I would feel directly after the surgery and the healing process. He also explained the progression of healing and any limitations that I might experience. HE WAS RIGHT ON THE MARK! And now I am pain free! I highly recommend Dr. Lazarus for shoulder surgery. The surgical team at Rothman Hospital in Bensalem, PA was also terrific. They were very thorough and made me feel very comfortable before and after my surgery.
in Chalfont, PA |
He explained the necessary procedure (rotator cuff surgery) in detail and answered all my questions. The surgery and recovery went perfectly and exactly as he said they would. I could not have asked for a better surgeon.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Gave me the bottom line on my shoulder injury - with my choices. In my situation had to go with surgery - use of arm was getting worse and more painful. Dr. Lazarus was in surgery all day - called me at 7pm to check if we were still a go for surgery the next day and asked if I had any questions or concerns. He told me it was 6 mos recovery - what would happen each month, etc. He was right. Just FOLLOW His guidelines and things get better.
