Patient Comments (8)

When your feet hurt you cannot concentrate on much else in life. Doctor Swords has given me the abilty to start living life again with much less pain. After having surgery and terrible experiences with other surgeons, I would never trust anyone else. Only regret is not seeing Swords from day one....more

Dr. Swords is an excellent surgeon. I did not meet him until the day of surgery. Excellent bedside manner. I was left with a plate and 8 screws he commented that it was difficult because my skin was like tissue paper.. He did such an excellent job that I barely have a scar. THANK YOU. DR. SWORDS...more

Dr. Swords is fantastic. After having my foot and ankle crushed in a car accident, he put me back together. He was upfront and honest, personable, and professional. My ability to walk today is due, in large part, to Dr. Swords. I cannot give he and his colleague, Dr. Jason Cochran, enough credit...more

Dr Swords repaired a tibia knee separation and fracture. This is a very severe injury that requires multiple surgeries. I am now walking without pain. Dr Swords is extremely gifted surgeon whose attention to detail is very important to have a complete recovery.

Dr. Swords is very easy to talk to, understand and is non-condescending. His repair work was very well done and I'm walking unassisted and pretty much pain free, while still in the healing process.
