Dr. Sawardeker did a phenomenal job with shoulder surgery. His team was wonderful. He protected me as I went back to work and was so accessible. Such a nice guy, my quality of life had gotten so poor due to my shoulder issues, but after surgery it's like I have a new life. I can't thank him enough.

So great to work with! I had a fractured wrist that he had done surgery on. He explained everything he was going to do, made me feel so comfortable with the surgery, and everything turned out great! Definitely one of the best hospital experiences I've ever had! I would recommend him to anyone who needs orthopedic care!

Dr. Sawardeker did an excellent job! I had a reverse total shoulder replacement procedure about 12 weeks ago. He clearly explained what was going on with my shoulder and how this procedure would improve my quality of life. My shoulder feels great today! He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. Very caring Doctor!

Dr. Sawardeker did a fantastic job on a very difficult surgery on my arm. Prior to the surgery, he explained my options and gave a very thorough explanation. After the surgery he briefed my wife on how it went. Our followup visit after the surgery was very helpful. Dr. Sawardeker is the consummate professional. He has a wonderful personality, is very patient and kind and above all he is an extremely skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Sawardeker repaired a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder about 4 years ago, and did a reverse total shoulder replacement in my right shoulder about 6 weeks ago. In both cases he clearly explained what was wrong and the options available to treat each painful condition. Once we decided on a treatment plan, his skill both as a surgeon and an effective communicator helped me understand what to expect each step of the way. He neither sugar-coated or catastrophized the process, but gave me an accurate picture of what the recovery period would be like from each procedure.

Thank you so much for your excellent care. Your team put a scared and concerned young football player with a badly broken arm your experience and knowledge prevented him from having surgery. Thank you so much for all you did to ensure his recovery.

Totally Awesome. Very good surgeon. I had a total shoulder replacement. There was no pain after surgery and no pain going through therapy.

At a time when I was feeling overwhelmed after a fall, Dr. Sawardeker was pleasant, calming and reassuring. He explained in language I could understand what had happened and what options were available for repair. Before, during and after surgery he continued to be professional in a comforting manner. He never made me feel rushed. I always left his office feeling confident in knowing what to expect on the next step of my healing journey with the added comfort in knowing if I had questions he was only a phone call away.

Dr. Sawardeker repaired my shoulder when I tore my rotator cuff and biceps. He is very thorough in explaining what to expect after surgery and the surgery itself went perfectly. I know have better than expected movement. I would highly recommend Dr. Sawardeker.
