I have been very disappointed in the service provided by The Core Institute and Dr. Siverhus' office. I tried to reach them about a knee brace they provided me and never received a call back. I finally had to drive to the office and speak with them. The bottom line is the knee brace did not fit. The technician in their office tried to manually bend the brace to make it fit but it did not work. My physical therapist said it was the wrong brace for me and showed me where I could a good one.

May 1, 2018 I had a total hip revision by Dr. Siverhus replacing a hip replacement by another surgeon. I am 82 years old at time of surgery. Dr, Siverhus was persistent in diagnosing my problem and would not go forward until other possible issues were checked out. He was very thorough and cautious. I truly appreciate his professionalism. Six years of pain was eliminated immediately upon the surgery of Dr. Siverhus. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Siverhus. Thank You!

I wanted to update my earlier review but couldn't so will add this. At five weeks, my Physical Therapist measured my range of motion at 136 degrees. I take credit for putting in a lot of work to get there but the excellent work done by Dr. Siverhus made it possible. My six week review with Dr. Siverhus was yesterday and he agreed my progress was sufficient to allow us to schedule TKR surgery asap on my right knee.

I trust Dr. Siverhus 100% with my hip surgeries. He replaced both of my hips, 8 years apart, did a fantastic job. Even had to replace my second hip replacement within two weeks due to me taking a bad fall. Ended up breaking my femur and dislocating my new hip. Dr. Siverhus took care of me and did an excellent job making me whole again. I highly, highly recommend him for your surgery.

Dr Siverhus performed TKR's on both of my knee's. I'm very satisfied with his professional skills, ability, experience and knowledge, the medical field of surgery. I did experience a staph infection, 5 months after my left knee surgery (4/21/16). Dr Siverhus acted extremely fast in scheduling my revision surgery. His understanding of his patients fears, concerns, and questions is simply outstanding and takes the time to reassure and answers all of your questions. #1 recommendation

Do not know if Dr. Siverhus remembers me but I think I was one of his first patients in Toledo, Ohio. Over 18 years ago. On my first visit we had a long visit, with Dr. sitting on the exam table and I in a chair. One of the most informative visit I have had. At that time he replaced my right hip and about 3 years later he replaced my left one. I have had no problems with either one. Just turned 82 last week and wanted to say hello and thanks for a good job.. May GOD BLESS you Dr.

I am a Retired Navy Veteran and spent 22 years in the Medical field as a Surface Force Independent Duty Corpsman and retired as a Chief Petty Officer. I had a total Left Hip Replacement completed by Dr. Siverhus and I have just learned that I need the same procedure completed on my Right Hip due to Necrosis of the Femoral Head. I specifically requested Dr. Siverhus when my request was sent to Tricare via Luke AFB. I will be out of the area from 9 Sept - 19 Sept for my sons wedding in Seattle.

He was very kind and friendly and took his time and listened to me to see what was my problems before he even looked at the xrays. I think thats nice. Then he explained things to me and he himself gave the injection in my knee rather than a nurse.I felt so reassured after speaking with him. I will go again to see him. There was a short wait but not to bad and it was worth it. This is a clean facility the bathrooms the exam rooms clean and sparkly. Everyone was friendly.
