Have had both my shoulders repaired by Dr Banffy. He's a rockstar. He takes his time to explain the situation in words a lay person can understand. He did my left shoulder about 3 years ago and my right one this year. Totally trust worthy, and very talented surgeon.

I have been very pleased with Dr. Banffy and his crew. I had my ACL replaced and although it is just 2 weeks after surgery, I am doing nicely. I am thankful for their care.
