Dr. Islinger performed arthroscopic knee surgery on me followed by a series of cortisone and lubrication shots. My pain diminished almost completely and I can live a normal life again. He is always so kind and takes the time to explain everything and answer all questions. A+ rating!

I first had the pleasure of meeting Dr Islinger around 1994 (?) My memory is not quite so good these days. Dr. Islinger repaired a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder. A few years later, I had the right torn rotator cuff repaired by Dr. Islinger. In the years since, I've had an occasional shot of cortisone in one shoulder or the other. Also, because I have severe pain in my neck and lower back, he referred me to a Neurosurgeon. My daughter has seen Dr. Islinger on numerous occasions also.

As a 72 year old with a tremendous enthusiasm for martial arts, for my daily four mile walk, and for my daily one hour swim, I am hugely indebted to Dr. Islinger for the outstanding job that he did in performing two surgeries on me that allowed me to return to my active life style (total knee replacement and repair of a badly damaged rotator cuff requiring 7 anchors!). His kind, caring, assuring approach helped to make the best of a very challenging situation. He is an outstanding professional

After having two knee replacements & looking forward to a left hip replacement I am very confident that Dr. Islinger is the surgeon of choice for this procedure.
