What People Say About Dr. Stephen Osborn, MD

I have had multiple surgeries due to osteoarthritic. Three arthroscopic knee surgeries, one total knee replacement and one arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Also had a carpal tunnel surgery and am soon to have my other hand done. Would go to no one but Dr. Stephen Osborn, Ten years ago I moved 3 hours away from Mountain View and I make the trip up to see him whenever I need help. He is always patient and doesn't rush surgery on you. Dr. Osborn and his staff are aware of how far away I live and they go out of their way to help me. I have never had a single post operative complication.

Dr. Osborn: I was your patient in 1987. My name is Edward E. Bradford and I was 35 at the time. You diagnosed a disc herniation at L4-5. I just wanted to write and sincerely thank you for helping me. I have had a fully active life to no small degree because of you, and of course Dr. Welsh. I was certainly blessed to have you both in my corner. I hope I thanked you then, but just in case I wanted you to know that I have never forgotten you and Dr. Welsh. Thank You Very Much--God Bless---Edward

Dr Osborn helped me with my back injury and my nerve damage issues. He was one of the best doctor's I've seen. I had so much trouble before and he has healed my back. He also took care of my husband during his concussion. I recommend him to anyone who wants a knowledgable doctor with an amazing bedside manner.

He is my back surgery doctor, I have seen him still, he is the best. Recently my left heel is hurt and he advised me to buy Asics shoe that I never wear this brand before and buy Superfeet insert. I bought Asics gel-nimbus 19 and green superfeet, after wearing 2 weeks, My heel is hurt less and it also makes my back more stable, really suprises me, I should say "WOW".

From my first visit with Dr. Osborn due to a very serious industrial accident on the job, I have had complete confidence in Dr. Osborn's treatment approach. He was very thorough in his diagnosis of the multiple serious injuries I sustained in my fall on the job. He has a very direct way of giving you his best opinion in what treatment/s will be of ultimate benefit to you, the patient. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Osborn to help give me back my health.

I really appreciate Dr. Osborn’s perfect surgery and sincere care of my raptured Achilles’ tendon. Now I am fully recovered, but it could not happen without him and Kimberly. Again,thank you very much.

Dr. Osborn takes more time to explain his reasoning than any doctor I've ever had. He made sure I understood everything about my injury. This included a deep dive into the mechanics of blood flow and why it was important to ice my wrist between 4 and 8 times a day (he's clearly used to having annoying engineers like me as patients). See him if you break a bone or have a sports related injury, because he takes time to analyze and explain your injury as opposed to just getting patients in and out

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.
