If it wasn't for Dr. Gillespie, I wouldn't be where I am now. Last year, he performed two surgeries on my left shoulder and my shoulder is where it should be, thank you, Dr. Gillespie, you are a awesome surgeon! Kudos!

Dr. Gillespie performed should surgery on me in 2017. I presented with chronic pain; he assured me that the surgery was 90% effective in treating the type of pain I had. He also said that since I was relatively healthy, it was highly unlikely that I would develop a frozen shoulder after the surgery. My recovery was miserable, and the whole horrible episode resulted in not only a frozen shoulder, but also a neck injury. More than 18 months later, my chronic pain has increased significantly.

Dr. Gillespie did a total joint replacement in my shoulder. The process flowed smoothly. The surgery was excellent, the recovery was quicker than expected. I have my active life back, without pain. The total experience was very positive. I am very impressed and have recommended Dr. Gillespie to friends.

He worked with my shoulder initially with therapy then surgery on my right shoulder rotator cup. It was the only surgery I have ever had that did not hurt like most do. There was mild pain but nothing like I have experienced before. I was up and around the following day. To me that is wonderful, I was prepared to be stuck in the house in bed and needing family to help me. Nope I was fine on my own. I put him in my highest reqards.

Dr. Gillespie treated my mother who is 91 and has severe shoulder pain. He was great with her. He spoke directly to her so that she could hear and understand what he was saying. He was very gentle and kind with her. He explained what he was doing and why in an easy to understand way. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
