Dr. Bender performed a reverse shoulder replacement for me last November. I received great care and concern before and after the surgery. Now I have full use of my shoulder. I highly recommend Dr. Bender!

I saw Dr. Bender for a serious elbow injury that included both broken bones and torn tendons. The injury is referred to as a “terrible triad” due to the fact that I chipped all three bones in my elbow. The surgery went smoothly. Post-op care was vigilant and consistent. I felt like I was in good hands from my first appointment to my last. I would recommend Dr. Bender to anyone.

Dr. Bender recently repaired my torn bicep tendon. He made sure I understood my options and once I made my decision he clearly described the surgically procedure as well as the post-surgery rehabilatation process. Dr. Bender was also promptly returned my calls both before and after surgery to answer questions I had. I highly recommend Dr. Michael J Bender.

Dr. Bender performed surgery on my arm which was broken in several places. I felt very confident with the care I received from him. He listens to his patients and is very considerate of answering any questions. Thank you Dr. Bender

I am almost 70 years old and I pulled my left shoulder too far by overextending it and lifting a couch. I was in excrutiating pain and thought I had torn my rotator cuff again. An MRI showed bone edema. Treatment consisted of anti-inflammatories and physical therapy. I was skeptical but followed the treatment. I was better in two weeks and able to go on a fall vacation. My shoulder gives me no pain now. Thank you, Dr. Bender Kathy Z.

I saw Dr. Bender and he diagnosed a partially torn bicep. He saw me right away, was very professional and I was impressed how well and quickly diagnosed the problem. He laid out a conservative treatment plan which worked fantastically and his follow up was the greatest. Both Dr. Bender and his staff are very patient focused. If I ever have a need again he is my go to doctor.
