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 and appreciation.

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.
in Ashley, MI |
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.

I will start this off by saying Dr.Swords is an excellent surgian and you ever find that you Orthopaedic surgery he is the man for the job. In 04 I had an nasty fall/jumped about 14' from a walk pic and suffered a bilateral pilon fracture along with other stuff. I was in Detroit so they patched me up best they could with what they had to work with. My wife heard about Dr. Swords from a co worker and so we went to see what my options were. Bone on bone is no fun so he fused my right. No pain!

Did not meet him until morning of surgery. Wonderful surgeon. Did a great job. No complications.

Dr Swords completed a 3 hour surgery to repair a shattered leg. It was very complicated and it was 4 months of rehab as well. Dr. Swords was excellent in communicating what he did and what I needed to do. I am very grateful that he was my doctor. He predicted that I would ride my bike again and I am and walking 2 miles a day. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He made me feel comfortable and confident.
