Dr. Below walks on water in my opinion. I have had two major surgeries performed by Dr. Below, total ankle reconstruction with tendon reassignment and rotator cuff surgery which he reinforced with 4 dissolvable bone anchors. My work is very physically demanding and each time I was able to return to work stronger and without pain after recovery. Dr. Below is a very skilled surgeon and a very compassionate man who explains every step of your treatment in great detail. You can't ask for more.
