    Dr. Mlynarek is absolutely amazing! He was able to accurately diagnose my hip problems upon our very first meeting. All of his recommendations and insights have been spot-on. It is clear that Dr. Mlynarek is very competent and cares a lot about his patients. Highly recommend, especially for anyone experiencing hip pain!

    I went to Dr. Mlynarek, after being misdiagnosed with a hamstring strain. Once I saw him, he found that it was actually a full hamstring avulsion (ripped off my pelvic bone). Due to the fact that it was months after the injury, there were other complications, with nerves being involved. He contacted another surgeon, and they came up with a plan on how to untangle the hamstring, from the nerves and reattach it. There were some risks involved because of the timeline but I am grateful they took the risk with me. I am almost completely back to normal and have started a return to running protocol, a step to getting my life back. I will be forever grateful!

    Dr. Mlynarek is a very talented Orthopedic Surgeon, and is the single best provider I have ever seen, in any specialty! His bedside manner is comforting and supportive, he explains every step without condescension, and he actually listens to patients' concerns and fears! I suffered a fractured leg that required surgery, and Dr. Mlynarek was there for me from the initial consultation, through surgery, and beyond. He truly cares for his patients! On the technical side, my surgery was a complete success, I had very minimal pain after, and my incision healed with very little scarring! If you find yourself in need of an Ortho, he's the man!

    Great doctor! I've had catching and locking in my hips for 3 years and no one diagnosed my problem until I met Dr. Mlynarek. Turns out I had bad FAI and a labral tear. He scoped my hip and now I'm back to playing basketball with no pain!

    Dr. Mlynarek performed a repair of a full thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon and biceps tenodesis. He explained everything in detail and made me comfortable with the procedure, recovery time, and what to expect post surgery. I could not be more pleased with the results. Three months later, through physical therapy and obeying doctors orders, I am mostly recovered from what was a severe injury. Thank you to Dr. Mlynarek and his staff at IHA Orthopedics.

    After exploding the ligaments in my right knee from a softball injury, Dr. Ryan did a great job replacing my ACL and repairing everything else that was then a little loosey goosey. 6 months after my surgery and I'm back to running and feeling great. I'll wait till next season to start playing again though, i don't want to have to go through that again. I'm kind of a wuss :)

    I have hip impingment and a labral tear. Dr. Mlynarek comes highly recommended in the area and I can see why. He explains things really well and offered me many different treatment options. Going to try physical therapy and if no better, then surgery. Very happy with my choice to see him.

    My son had hip pain while playing hockey for the past few seasons. We always thought he just had tight hip flexors. Dr. Mlynarek diagnosed him with Femoroacetabular Impingement. PT helped him get through the season and he just had a hip scope 6 months ago to fix the labrum and the impingement. He's doing great and ready to get back on the ice!

    Dr. Mlynarek my son for a shoulder labral tear after dislocation this year in football. His office and clinic staff were prompt and very pleasant to deal with. Very accommodating to make an appointment around his school schedule. Dr. Mlynarek is young but extremely knowledgeable and up to date with latest treatments. Surgery went great and post-op rehab very organized and straightforward. I feel comfortable sending any family member to him in the future.
