      I went to see Dr. Rauh with shoulder issues and he determined I needed rotator cuff surgery. Just over a year later my shoulder is doing great and I am back to my old activities. Dr. Rauh and Talia were patient and took the time to answer all of my many questions. If I had a family member or friend with shoulder problems I would highly advise them to talk to Dr. Rauh. It is worth the drive from Jamestown.

      Dr. Rauh has performed both knee and shoulder surgery on me. Both resulted in very good outcomes. Recovery time from the knee surgery seemed like a couple weeks. Recovery from the shoulder surgery is still ongoing after ten months, which Dr. Rauh told me would be the case. My shoulder range of motion is very good, strength is coming back.

      I have seen Dr. Rauh for a rotator cuff surgery and just recently for a meniscus tear with arthritis in the knee as well. Appointment scheduling is reasonable, his office staff and PA's are outstanding. Dr Rauh spends the time needed during visits, he listens to me, accepts my position on medicine, offers excellent advice as well. My shoulder surgery was a huge success! Highly recommend.

      Dr. Rauh, Talia and the rest of the staff at UB Ortho provided an excellent overall experience. Dr. Rauh thoroughly explained all of my options and expected outcomes. He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with my decision. 10 months post-op and I have ZERO pain and full use of my shoulder. At all of my follow up appointments Talia has provided the same level of excellent care. She is knowledgeable, and was attentive to my questions and concerns. The office staff are friendly, courteous and efficient.

      Dr. Rauh diagnosed my knee injury and performed ACL reconstructive surgery. He answered questions directly and shared all of the various options as well as his recommendation and the rational behind it. In this way he left the choice to move forward with surgery clearly as my decision. The office visits were handled in an orderly and efficient way. The surgery was successful with a minimal amount of scarring and swelling. His staff was also courteous and diligent (Mary / Talia). Would highly recommend.

      Dr. Rauh and his team provided excellent care. I appreciate Dr. Rauh's involvement in research and teaching in addition to surgery. He is straight forward in sharing statistics on the outcome of surgery and provides follow up to keep your rehabilitation on course. I was 63 years old with a severe rotator cuff tear and other related shoulder issues. I understood the importance of rehabilitation after surgery. With perseverance I had excellent results and was able to continue crewing for a hot air balloon, and will resume rowing and take up pickleball next season. I highly recommend Dr. Rauh and his team.

      I had torn my meniscus. Dr. Rauh was recommended my primary physician. From the very beginning Dr. Rauh, and all the staff at UB Orthopaedics, were excellent, concerned and caring. They went through all my options with me. I first went through physical therapy, but ended up needing surgery and I am so glad I had it done. My pain is gone and my mobility has improved immensely. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rauh!

      Dr. Rauh and PA Talia make a great team. After an initial visit, then an MRI, Dr. Rauh discussed my options and potential outcomes regarding a severe rotator cuff injury. He answered all of our questions and explained what to expect. Deciding to have surgery, I am now 6 months post-op and am extremely pleased with my progress so far. Both Talia and Dr. Rauh have been genuinely concerned for my welfare. They are down to earth and easy to talk to. The office staff is competent and pleasant. I would highly recommend Dr. Rauh to anyone needing his expertise. My only negative experience had nothing to do with Dr. Rauh, but rather with the site where I had my surgery. Due to my insurance not covering surgery at the Orchard Park site, I had to have it at ECMC Ambulatory Center. I would not recommend this site for surgery. I felt they did a substandard job preping me for surgery and rushed me out after surgery. The actual surgery and anesthesia dept were fine. Thanks Dr. Rauh and team!

      From start to finish DR Rauh and his PA Talia were top notch, explaining my options, explaining the process of shoulder surgery. UBMD is a great facility, everything is right there, from office visits to having my MRI , surgery ,and physical therapy, If I had to do it again there's no one else I'd see. Got me back to work in 7 months !

      Dr. Rauh was thorough in all my options for my shoulder. He answered all my questions so I could understand what my injury was. I had a torn Rotator cuff that has bothered me tremendously for 25 years. After surgery I actually had less pain than before. I have more range of motion after 12 weeks than before surgery. I couldn't recommend a better Dr. or person to work with to repair my shoulder. Thank You Dr. Rauh for your time, patience, and professionalism.
