I have been a patient of Dr. Woodworth's since moving to Las Vegas 13 years ago. It was quite comforting to me to find an orthopaedic surgeon who met all the qualifications I was looking for...Dr. Woodworth is courteous, friendly, and his decisions about all my conditions were spot on! I still go to him (with a new condition). If you LISTEN to what your physician explains to you and FOLLOW what he/she says, you will be better off! His staff is excellent as well~

Dr. Woodworth is an amazing physician! I have been an RN for 40 years, so I am an expert when it comes to judging physician quality. He is very polite and caring. Dr. Woodworth explained my condition and surgery in great detail and is very patient, answering all my questions so I could understand in order to make an informed decision. I never felt hurried. When selecting a surgeon, he should be your first choice.

Had to see Dr. Woodworth for a labrum tear. His staff is well trained and very organized, and I had no problem getting an appointment. Bedside manner was excellent, Dr. Woodworth took time to explain exactly what my procedure would be like.
