Sparrows Point, MD |
MY experience in having my shoulder operated on by DR. Hinton were great. I had torn ligaments in my shoulder and bicept. HE mended my ligaments to the shoulder. through small incisions so i have no huge scar on my shoulder. Therapy for motion have taken months.. My strength motion is next.

I have had 2 rotator cuff surgeries by Dr Hinton, the first was very severe at 100% tear, and the second one a more minor 30% tear. My recovery was excellent and his staff very attentive to my needs......both jobs 100%!
My sister tore her ACL and Dr. Hinton was her doctor. A couple years later I had Osteochondritis dissecans and Dr. Hinton did all three of my surgeries. He is the best doctor I have ever had. He explained everything and took his time. He is a marvelous surgeon. I have recommended him to everyone who is having orthopedic problems. I will continue to refer him as he is the best doctor and he made my life better through his work. If you want a good doctor go to him. You will not regret it.
