    I have been a patient of Dr. Osborn for a couple of years. It began with shoulder problems and then later when I had back problems I went back to him. I love his approach..his first option with me was not surgery, but rather a more conservative approach. Regarding my back issues, he referred me to a spine specialist which was very helpful. Prior to meeting with Dr. Osborn I had been seen at a well known sports medicine office wherein surgery was offered after one lousy cortisone shot. 5 stars!!

    Dr. Osborn tales the time to conduct a thorough exam and prefer any tests hee feels are necessary. He discusses his findings with the patient and outlines the options. He is a very skilled surgeon. Always staying up on the latest advancements.

    I've been a patient of the Drs since I was involved in a vehicular accident in1993. Due to severity of multiple injuries, Dr. Osborn has performed 7 different surgeries on both my knees and one on my neck. I believe that due to these procedures and Drs care I still lead an active life. He is a caring and compassionate Dr. An excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him. J.Perry

    I have been a patient of Dr. Osborn's for over 25 years, and have always left his office knowing I had his full attention and best care. The few times I have had to see super specialists, he found me the best of the best, even in another state. I have seen physicians in the "big box" medical offices and much prefer the one on one attention you get at Dr. Osborn's office. If you need an orthopedist and want both a great doctor and individualized care, I highly recommend Dr. Stephen Osborn.

    I have gone to Dr. Osborn for several injuries over the past 8 years. He has always been extremely helpful and knowledgable. I liked how he would suggest several options of treatment, with surgery as a last option. I will definitely go back to see him if I get injured again.

    Dr. Osborn performed surgery on a Meniscus tear on my knee. My knee is as good as new. He is very efficient and willing to explain any parts of the procedure. I experienced a short down time after my surgery and a rapid return to normal usage of my knee.

    Very thoughtful, thorough and experienced. Dr. Osborn takes the time to understand, test, review and recommend personalized treatments. Highly recommend to anyone looking for sports injury related issues.

    Over the past 20 years Dr. Osborn has repaired both of my Achilles' heels. Assisted on my back surgery. And has just done a shoulder reconstruction. He is very knowledgeable and I wouldn't trust anybody else with operating on me for orthopedics. Stan Tupper

    Dr Osborn is a wonderful doctor and an even better surgeon. He will take the time to get to know you and will provide a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan.

    I was in a car accident, I was having issues with my treating doctor's being able to determine why I was in such pain. Their response was always take this drug or other. When one finally recommended Dr. Osborn. He got me off the drugs, did surgery and I was much better. Since then he has done both my knees and my shoulder. He is caring, takes time with his patients, listens and treats the whole person, not just the ailment. I would highly recommend Dr. Osborn.

    I've had a variety of orthopedic injuries/issues, including a broken ankle, frozen shoulder and back spasms. I like being able to go to one doctor who can address all these issues. Dr. Osborn is competent, and a great diagnostician. I didn't realize how good he was until I had to go to a big box ortho office when my insurance changed, and I hated it. Thankfully my new policy allows me to see Dr. Osborn. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
