Have gone to Dr. Vasiu for my knees, my 16 year old son's knees and shoulder, and my 15 year old son's torn acl. Dr. Vasiu is quick and efficient in diagnosis and discussing options. He always gives the option of doing nothing (no hard sell or pressure) and likes to do the least invasive options...more

Torn labrum and fraid bicep tendon repair. Labrum still has a tear. MRI that an outside physician had to schedule to prove labrum is still torn after full release.
