First rate doctor/surgeon. Explains, illustrates, and fixes you problem. Makes helpful suggestions for future treatment and/or life-style changes that may promote your future well being and enhance your success at recovery. Highly recommend.

I am writing to let anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon know, that in my opinion, Dr Schram is a great surgeon. His skill as a surgeon has helped me recover from a detached rotator cuff tear. While I still have work to do on regaining strength, my range of motion is 100%. Even PT is impressed by how quickly I got range back. I also respect Dr Schram's opinion as I consulted him a year before my tear on my hip. He recommended against surgery. So he is interested in what's best for you.

I tore my left ACL 8 years ago and then tore my right one just 6 months ago. I had such a great result with my first surgery that I had great confidence in returning to Dr. Schram again, he replaced them with a patellar graft both times. Both had tremendous results and I would highly recommend him for any sports related injury.

I recently had shoulder surgery by Dr. Schram. Recovery is going great. If you have any concerns he takes the time to explain the answers so you understand. I would have no problem recommending Dr. Schram to any friends or relatives for their orthopedic needs. Dr. Schram is a very competent and friendly orthopedic surgeon. Greg McCord.

This was the second time for my knee, Dr. Schram patched it up 8 years ago and this time did a partial replacement. Everything went very well and was back on my feet in a couple of weeks. Would highly recommend him for Orthopedic needs.

My experience with Dr. Schram dates back many years ago until just recently. Ten years ago Dr. Schram did a total knee replacement on my right knee and this past December did a total knee replacement of my left knee. Success was achieved on both replacements. I couldn't be happier! Dr. Schram is a very professional surgeon and a very caring person who has his patients best interest at heart. He comes with a strong recommendation from me!!

Terrific doctor! Had both knees replaced by him in the last 3 months. I highly recommend Dr. Schram to anyone who is needing total knee replacement surgery.

Dr. Schram is arrogant, dismissive and rude. His huge ego gets in the way of his compassion and ability listen to his patient. There is no doubt that he has a very high opinion of himself by his cocky demeanor. His defensiveness does not exude confidence but rather fear. Please be assured that this review is neither exaggerated or hysterical. He left me speechless after he examined my 85 year old mother. I could not believe how condescending and accusatory he was towards us. Awful person!

Did a great job on rotator cuff surgery and follow up care which is vital to sucess

Dr. Schram was honest open and transparent. I went to him fo a second opinion on my full knee replacements. He was very clear about his recommendation and showed me my X-rays and explained how they supported his recommendation. I have had my first full knee relacement and it turned out great! I highly recommend Dr. Schram if you are in need of full knee relacement.

I'm a 45 year old male that went to Dr. Schram for pain in my left knee from a soccer injury. MRI was negative but Dr. Schram identified the issue through a physical exam (tear in articular cartilage with possible meniscus tear). Surgery a week later went great. He repaired the articular cartilage but meniscus was ok on inspection. The day after surgery I was weight bearing. Two weeks later I was able to run again. Now, three months later it is like it never happened. Great overall expe

He is the best orthopedic dr we have ever encountered! He has operated on my husband and myself...knees and shoulders and he is truly a magician! We would recommend him to anyone!
in Austin, TX |
Phenomenal! Highly Recommend Dr. Schram. I had a torn meniscus and Dr. Schram repaired it quickly. I am back playing tennis again! It was not readily apparent that I had torn my meniscus. The MRI report was inconclusive.Dr. Schram discussed the report and took the time to review the underlying scans with me.It was apparent that there was something wrong with my knee that did not ?show? on the report. During the surgery, the tear was found and repaired. Professional and attention to detail !!
in Austin, TX |
Highly recommend - the service and professionalism from Dr Schram and his entire team was exceptional. Knee pain was a torn meniscus! Surgery on Friday, walking on Saturday evening and playing golf on Tuesday says it all. There is no doubt he is one of the best, capable and competent doctors and would highly recommend.
Amazing ! Caring and friendly
