Trigger thumb surgery
I am very impressed with Dr Ryan Takenaga. He listened to me and explained my options fully. As I chose surgery, he explained the procedure and what to expect afterward. He operated on my trigger thumb on 12/21/2022 and he did a fantastic job. It healed with little to no pain and as of my follow-up visit on 1/31/22 you can not even see a scar where the procedure was done. My thumb now works perfectly with no pain. I give him high marks and would not hesitate to use his services again. I highly recommend him.

Knee meniscus tears
Dr. Takenaga, is the Best of the Best! I would highly recommend him. I am 51 years old and fell at my dock , torn the meniscus on both sides of my knee. I was in pain and was ready to be well. Doctor explained what was going on with my knee and gave me options. I was ready to get well, so went with the option to have surgery After surgery, walked right out, with a little help, but walking. Feel great today, no scars, He cares about you as a patient and person. Explains things very well, can't say enough great things about him. If you are in pain, don't wait, go see him. Lori Rheubottom

Dr.Takenaga done a extremely torn rotor cuff on my right shoulder. He done a wonderful job. You can hardly tell where he made any cuts to get into my shoulder. As far as pain. It was very limited and very little. He will answer any questions you have about everything before and after the surgery. I couldnt have asked for a better Dr. To do my surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr.Takenaga for a wonderful job you did.
