Dr Auld repaired my shoulder 12 years ago and it was an excellent job. I got back 99% rotation. He also replaced my girlfriends knee in August and she now walks 5 miles a day.

Received sound pre-op info (I thought) but my scheduled menisectomy ended up being a meniscus repair which requires 6 weeks of non-weight bearing which in turn atrophied my quad. 2 yrs later it's still smaller but I can finally walk down stairs without falling. I was not told I was having it repaired, or the required non-weight bearing (6 wks off work) and it's odds of failing. It failed am due I hadn't to have a subsequent surgery that I'm still in pain from. Not happy or recommended.

Dr. Auld explained all my options and told me his recommendations. Dr. Auld has fixed both my shoulders. He is very skilled at what he does and both my shoulders are pain free. I highly recommend his services.

He did not explain all my options before knee replacement surgery. I still wonder today 15 years later if I really needed a replacement. I have never been out of pain. That result is not Dr. auld's fault, but I feel we did not discuss exactly what was going on.
