This was my first visit. Dr. Winder explained my condition and answered all of my questions. Since he did not do the type of surgery I need, he referred me to another doctor in orthopedic center who I will be seeing next week.

Respectfully, issue was not addressed. I stated that my pain was in the back of my knee and he gave me pages of exercises for physical therapy for patellar/front of knee.

Dr. Winder is outstanding. Prompt, professional, knowledgeable and funny. He made me feel comfortable, took care of the shoulder issue, and got me on my way. Thank you sir!

It was a first visit for me. Everything went smoothly. Dr. Winder was very personable and professional. He took the time to listen to my assessment of my problem as well as what I had done to help myself and what didn't work. He was supportive and reassuring. I appreciated that he did not push for surgical intervention until I am ready. I will recommend him to others.

Dr. Winder was excellent! Once the exam and decisions were made, we moved swiftly to correct my shoulder problem. Also had a great physical therapy experience. I would recommend Dr. Winder and the team to anyone needing orthopedic attention.

I had a torn ACL and medial meniscus playing soccer. I got in to see Dr. Winder the next week. He explained what had happened internally, what to expect and my options. He was patient and kind. I had the surgery (acl reconst with hamstring autograft) 2 weeks later. Surgery went smoothly. Had my 2-week follow up and he answered all my questions and checked/verified all is well. PT is tough but at least the surgery was a success. I'm happy with my experience with Dr Winder.
in Henderson, NV |
He is very good in his field. Before my surgery I've read his bio so I was confident that I was in good hands and I was not mistaken. He asks about my pain and he listens to my concerns and gives appropriate solutions.

My son broke his wrist at a birthday party at Glowzone. Dr. Winder was extremely caring with an excellent bedside manner. He had a quick rapport with my son and explained the X-rays in depth to us. He and his staff were extremely friendly and efficient, while simultaneously not being in a hurry. We were well taken care of and I highly recommend Dr. Winder.

Dr Winder gave me a cortisone shot in my knee..he nor no one on his staff told me to stay off knee or any of the possible bad side effects. It has been 11 days and my leg from knee down is on fire and has been for 9 days. Also all this time I have had the feeling of ice water running through my leg. His office just tells me to go to pt but I just want to know what went wrong and is this permanent. I have decided that I cannot go on if I have to live like this the rest of my life..

Dr Winder has worked with me for several months

I had Dr. Winder perform a full right shoulder replacement on August 10th. It's been three months and I could not be happier. Although I'm still healing, the horrible pain I had been experiencing is gone. Thanks and a big 5 stars for this surgeon!
