It was a good experience, Dr. Chamelin was confident that the Surgery would go well and I would be off my crutches in a week after surgery. So far everything has been progressing as expected. Thanks to Chamelin’s work and also to God the creator of us all that made our bodies in a way that they can heal.

This was my second Meniscus surgery on my left knee and first with Dr Schamblin. Surgery went as expected. What was not expected was the results. This was the quickest recovery I have ever had on a knee surgery with almost no pain.

I had shoulder surgery, the whole procedure was outstanding. There was not as much pain as I would of thought, just discomfort. Everybody I dealt with was polite, friendly, professional, and knew their job. I recommend DR. Schamblin and his team. Thank you, Paul Nelson

Dr Schamblin has done surgery on my shoulder and now my knee, both of them this year. He has an amazing bedside manner, keeping you comfortable and smiling the entire time. I also have 3 other family members that see him and I wouldn’t hesitate to receive him to anyone having orthopedic problems!!!

The staff are very friendly, courteous, and helpful. Dr. Schamblin only suggested surgery as a last alternative and tried all the other options first (cortisone injections, physical therapy, and trigger point injections). He explained everything he was going to do ahead of time and gave me a treatment plan. During surgery, the entire staff were outstanding. I would very highly recommend Bahamas Surgery Center to anyone who needs surgery. Every need I had or didn’t even know I had was attended to immediately. If I ever need surgery again, I will not hesitate to go back for this impeccable service.

He has performed 3 operations on me over the last 10 years. Both knees were repaired 9 years apart and recently he repaired my left shoulder. I can`t express how grateful I was to hear he was still in town and able to fix my knee 9 years after the first one. It was a total success and I can`t tell it was ever damaged. I wanted no other doctor but him to do the second knee last year and the shoulder this year. Both of these surgeries also successful. Anytime someone talks about needing knee surgery I always tell them to go see him. Surgery is a scary thing to go through but he makes it so much easier by explaining in detail your options , possible outcomes, and overall you just get this feeling of comfort knowing you are in good hands. He also does a great job of checking on you for quite awhile in the after care. Some surgeons when the job is done that`s it and they move on to the next. He will always be my first choice. This coming spring I will be asking him to fix my other shoulder.

Dr Schamblin always made me feel like family. I had an ACL surgery and Dr Schamblin as well as his team made sure that I was as comfortable as possible. My follow ups with Dr Schamblin have also showed me that he truly cares for his patients. You never feel rushed out of his office and he’s always there if you have any questions.
