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
