Dr Matthew Walker is a great shoulder surgeon I had a replacement before I went to him but was having pain with it he took xrays and he decided I needed a reverse shoulder because of the tears. It has been a year since I had it and I am doing great. He also has a great team who is spot on when you need something. Very professional

Dr. Walker is an excellent surgeon that specializes in shoulders and elbows. I had a reverse shoulder replacement on 01/15/19 and am progressing nicely. After the initial nerve block wore off the pain was intense but would have been far worse if not forDr. Walker’s team getting me in front of the pain which has made my pain management easier. I have a long way to go but I’m confident that Dr. Walker’s and his team will get me back to where I want to be.

Dr. Walker has done rotator cuff surgery and reattachment of the bicep muscles on both of my shoulders and arms. I have complete confidence in his ability and guidance both before and after the surgery. He is a true professional and he can actually make an extremely painful experience humorous with his likable personality and great bedside manner. I would recommend Dr. Walker to anyone with shoulder injuries.

Dr Walker is a laid back extremely competent physician. His style informs but doesn’t creat overreaction. I’m glad the ER referred me to him for my shoulder.
