I can’t speak highly enough about this doctor. After consulting with a total of three surgeons to do my meniscus tear surgery, I knew within 10 minutes of meeting Dr. Salzler that he was the best physician to do the surgery. He was the only surgeon that also listened to my complaint of having nagging IT Band pain and offering to address it with IT Band lengthening. Not only did he take his time addressing all of my concerns, he was so kind. I recovered quickly and I attest that to his expertise with my surgeries. This doctor is the best and if I ever need his services again, without hesitation I will contact him. If you are looking for a surgeon that specializes in athletic injuries in the knee, talk to Dr. Salzler. His entire staff is amazing as well. Thank you so much Dr. Salzler you are an outstanding physician and I’m so happy I received care at Tufts Medical Center.

Dr. Salzler basically performed a knee reconstruction on me. I was 17 at the time of my injury and completely overwhelmed and anxious about the injury, surgery and recovery. Dr. Salzler spent the time to answer all my questions and always provided me with the answers to help with rehab for a successful recovery. Thanks to Dr. Salzler, I am back skiing, hiking, running, and doing all the things I love. I highly recommend him.

Adductor Release Surgery - My experience with Dr. Matthew J Salzler has been amazing. I have been in pain for more than 6 months (adductor tendinitis). I tried EVERYTHING to fix it and nothing worked so we finally decided to do surgery (adductor release). It was my first surgery ever and I was pretty scare but he and all the team (nurses, anesthesia doctors, stuff, etc.) at Tufts Medical Center were just unbelievable. They made the procedure so easy. After a week from the surgery I can tell that the pain from the injury is gone! You are in good hands with Dr. Salzler and his team. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much! Victor Sanchez

Dr. Salzler really helped me! I am a mother of three and had a laberal cartilage tear, I was in pain. I saw several local doctors who refused to treat me. I was recommended to Dr. Salzler through my daughters' scoliosis doctor. I feel so lucky to have been treated by Dr. Salzler. I had surgery for my tear, plus therapy. Today 10 months later I feel so much better and virtually no pain.

I'm about 7 weeks out of surgery and my knee ( large meniscus tear ) is 98% and I'm dying to start running again. Dr. Salzler was direct, gave options and all the information so I could make the right decision. My surgery was easy, out the same morning and I had zero pain ( soreness/pain from PT only ). I just had my last appointment and my knee feels 100% normal. This Doctor did a brilliant job.

Dr. Salzler is AMAZING. The most helpful Dr. I have ever worked with in my entire life. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He worked with me on my ACL replacement and Meniscus reconstruction. From start to finish he has made everything easier to deal with. The surgery went as smooth as butter. No complications whatsoever! Dr. Salzler cares, he really does, and I highly recommend working with him.

Dr. Salzler helped me with my tibial tubercle osteotmy and I couldn't have had a more amazing experience. Due to the nature of the injury I met with him multiple times prior to the surgery, as well as up through 6 months post-op. He and his staff were pleasant, knowledgeable, and patient. For such a scary procedure, he made me feel at ease and comfortable with the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a similar experience.

I've had Dr. Salzer as my orthopedic surgeon for the past year and a half during that time I had MCL, PCL, and ACL reconstructive knee surgery. He was very caring and always available for any questions today my knee feels great and am finally getting back to work and I owe it all to him. Highly recommended

Dr Salzer has given quality of life back to my mom with her reverse shoulder replacement. Prior to the surgery she experienced pseudo paralysis of her arm, meaning there was no movement of the arm. She had to lift it with her other arm. After the surgery she is able to touch the stars!! We are very grateful for Dr Salzer's expertise and bedside manner.

Dr. Salzer never kept me waiting and always explained and answered questions with a genuine concern that I was comfortable and understood the entire process from diagnosis to a final follow up after P.T. His physician assistants were very helpful and friendly throughout the process. These people and Dr. Salzer care. My shoulder was torn up and his surgery has me feeling better than before my injury.

Dr. Salzler is professional and friendly. He is not pompous or degrading, which is rare in the orthopedic profession. My questions and fears, through the initial diagnosis, to the arthroscopic surgery, to the post-OP, were always answered with patience and kindness. He expressed interest in my life, my health, and my recovery.

Dr. Salzler repaired my Achilles rupture a few months ago and my recovery has been excellent. He is very knowledgeable and gives you confidence in his ability during your consultations. He is patient and answers your questions, walks you through all the different aspects of the procedures and recovery, and does well to make you feel comfortable throughout the process. I have enjoyed each interaction, even the surgery, at least what I remember :)

I was med-flighted to Tufts MC after a motorcycle accident suffering a post. knee dislocation tearing my ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL. Dr. Salzler was very clear and concise and easy to understand which was comforting. He estimated I'd only gain back about 75% mobility in my knee considering the extent of my injury. It's been a year since my first surgery and said my outcome is one of the best he's ever seen on a 4 ligament replacement. Excellent doctor and surgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Salzler!!
