Dr. Riggenbach has changed my life. I am a professional wrestler and bodybuilder. I had major elbow pain in the gym and it was career ending for me. He laid out options for me and explained them in detail for example, a quick fix vs a long term fix!! When I went in for my scheduled surgery we found out there was more issues than we expected. Dr. Riggenbach repaired my tricep tendon, elbow debri, and bursitis!!! I am now on my way to being 100% recovered with 0 pain and 100% strength back!!!!!!!
We appreciate the kind words about our team. It's our pleasure to help you get back to doing what you love!

I found out that Dr. Riggenbach had a great reputation before I went for my carpel tunnel and ulnar transposition procedure. That gave me some comfort since I had never had surgery before. 6 weeks out of surgery, I can't say enough about the job he and his team did. I'm not 100% yet since we are just starting the strength training, but the numbness is gone, the scars are minimal, and they obviously care about their patients. Thanks to Dr. Riggenbach and the Orlando Ortho team!
We're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with Dr. Riggenbach at your recent visit. Hope all is well and thank you for sharing!

While Dr. Riggenbach was professional and helpful, the office staff was neither. At first I was told they couldn't accept my insurance and was not given an opportunity to explain that it was FELA. (Workman's Comp for railroaders) rather than insurance. I saw Dr. Riggenbach twice! Once to schedule an MRI and again to talk about surgery. But then I was refused again based on "Insurance". I'd like 2 months of my life back!
I share your frustration in the insurance issues which prevent the surgery you need from being scheduled. I am sorry you had to spend the time traveling from GA to see me. If you are still in need of a surgeon, please reach out to my staff. I may be able to help locate one closer to your area. You can call 407-418-0581 or email TeamRiggenbach@OrlandoOrtho.com.

He was concerned and cautious about the fix. He spent enough time to make me feel good.

We drive two hours to see Dr. Riggenbach and it's worth every minute. My husband has a brachial plexus injury and was told he won't use his arm again. Dr. Riggenbach has given us hope where we had none. We are hoping to be able to have surgery in Feb to restore the function. He is young and smart. He was very thorough with his exam and his explanation of his treatment plan. The staff at Orlando Orthopedic Center have been friendly and knowledgeable also.
We're so glad to hear about your positive experience with Dr. Riggenbach. Our goal is to provide the very best patient care available, so it's always encouraging to hear about positive experiences.

This is my second surgery with Dr. Riggenbach. I have never had an ounce of pain with either surgery. I had the same nurses and patient care staff as I did at my first surgery. He listens and does things according to my wishes. I may have to have another surgery and Dr. has told me that it will be more difficult. There is always honesty so the patient is well prepared.

This was my first experience with a bone break. I broke my finger and Dr. riggenbach scheduled surgery very quickly. When i arrived at the surgery center, the doctor stated that he thought i would do better with physical therapy because my finger was in a better position then when we consulted the first time. I appreciate his honesty and not doing a surgery that was not warranted. Thank you very much i can't thank you enough. now onto the pt.
