Dr Tenholder is very caring, respectful of your health. I had a hip replacement and he and Rick, Malcolm and the rest of their staff were amazing. My husband had both hips replaced and the care was excellent. Highly recommend Dr. Tenholder and his staff.

Initially, I requested a consultation with Dr. Tenholder relative to the possibility of a total hip replacement. He was very thorough in delineating the characteristics of the posterior vs. anterior techniques; he was also very reassuring. I opted to have surgery on March 26, 2019. The timeline that Dr. Tenholder presented for a near total recovery (six weeks) has been spot on. I regularly contemplate, "why didn't I do this a year ago??". Dr. Tenholder's entire staff were great; they responded to all of my questions that I submitted via the Health Loop app within minutes. I couldn't be happier with my experience or results. It is so refreshing to be pain free, and reassert control over my life. Many thanks

My hip replacement was very organized in every respect. Joint class was intended to inform the patient what to expect prior to, during and post surgery. That class, and the hand outs provided, covered everything! During the entire "trip" there were frequent reminders to keep us on track! Dr. Tenholder was always involved and has a wonderful way of explaining everything clearly and with a sense of humor! HealthLoop was a simple way to contact the physician my with progress and any questions. My questions were always answered quickly! I will not hesitate to refer my friends and family to Dr. Mark Tenholder!

Dr. Tenholder and his team are exceptional. When my mother fell and broke her arm we were referred to Dr. Tenholder. To date his team has helped us with my mom's arm, my sister's knee replacement, my two hip replacements and my husbands torn rotator cuff.

I am very impressed with Dr. Tenholder and his team. I am especially impressed with his web site Health Loop that he uses to check in with me almost daily about how I am doing. He uses it also to give a variety of information on what to expect and what to watch out for.

Any one looking for any orthopedic surgery should feel at ease selecting Dr. Tenholder. He performed a total hip replacement on me and the results are fantastic. I now have a normal life again. Prior to surgery, I couldn't walk normally, tie my shoe, or do anything that I used to do. Since the surgery, I am a new person. The recovery time was excellent, I had the procedure on 1/22/2019 and got the ok to get back on the golf course on 3/4/2019.

I found that Dr. Tenholder was amazing. The whole procedure from beginning to end was GREAT, He sends you E-Mails daily checking on you before the surgery and after. I had a knee replacement and after a few days I was up and walking with just the use of a cane. I would recommend him

Dr. Mark Tenholder and his staff are as good as it gets if you find yourself in need of an exceptional orthopedic surgeon. He is professional, patient, competent, caring, and courteous. I had a partial knee replacement and expected to be laid up for months, but was back doing the things I enjoyed in two weeks. I would and have recommended him to friends and family.

Dr. Tenholder is terrific. He is competent, knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. I have had three surgeries performed by Dr. Tenholder (2 hips replacements, and a bi-cep reattachment). All three surgeries were successful. Dr. Tenholder, and his staff, were concerned about my needs, and made me as comfortable as possible during each process. I wouldn't go anywhere else, and highly recommend him, and his staff.

Dr Tenholder is an outstanding surgeon who is very well respected in his field. He keeps up on the most progressive techniques and has a staff that reflects that. I always enjoyed going to my appointments because I knew Dr Tenholder and his staff would be friendly, professional and take the time to talk and listen. My knee surgeries were so much better than I even expected. I got along fabulously due to the fantastic job he did with my knee replacements. I highly recommend him and his staff.

My hip replacement surgery was done by Dr. Tenholder and I highly recommend his services. His office visits were on time with little to no waiting. Dr. Tenholder is a professional through and through. Robotic surgery is the best. Within a few weeks I was walking without a walker and cane. I highly recommend his services to anyone who has knee, hip or shoulder issues. Thank You very much Dr. Tenholder. I feel like a new person and my energy level has risen 10 fold since the surgery.
