What People Say About Dr. Tad Dewald, MD

This is easy. Read the numerous reviews about Dr. DeWald. I can attest to virtually each and every one of them being true. He is great. At 73 years of age, I'm hopeful the recent stem cells and platelet rich plasma injections into both knees and my shoulder will have a positive effect. We'll see about that over time. So far, I can't say enough good things about Dr, DeWald's professionalism, demeanor, caring attitude, and after the procedure followup. It's all been exceptional and outstanding. I would be remiss if I didn't include a shout-out for his assistant, Madison, who does a great job supporting the doctor. Thank you Dr. DeWald and Madi!

I am 6 months after my stem cell and PRP procedure on both knees and shoulders and have no pain. I used to get pain in my left ankle as well and since the knee is feeling better, the ankle has improved as well. I am walking about 3 miles a day with no pain. Dr. DeWald is wonderful. This whole experience has been so motivational to do my exercises now that I can do them without pain. Recovery was very easy. I came home after the procedure and I went to dinner that night and recovery after that was even easier. I saw a friend after they had their knees replaced in February who is not quite able to complete a mile walk yet, and I was walking the same day. I would recommend this procedure to everyone.

I had torn rotators and shoulder arthritis. Dr. DeWald injected my shoulders with my own stem cells and platelet rich plasma. My 71-year-old shoulders are healing!

I haven't got enough good things to say about Dr. DeWald and his staff. After years of cortisone injections and extraordinary pain, Dr. DeWald did PRP injection and no more pain after 6 months out! I will be going back for more to avoid foot surgery. Amazing what a caring, compassionate doctor with a good sense of humor can accomplish!

One year out from stem cell on both knees. No pain! This is so much better than knee replacement surgery and I do not know why other doctors don't offer the treatment. Extremely happy with Dr. DeWald and his staff.

I was skeptical about the likelihood of PRP working but my only alternative at that point was surgery so I decided to try it to avoid surgery. Prior to the injection (which is briefly painful) the tendon tears in my shoulder woke me up frequently. After the injection, I began sleeping through the night and feel that the procedure was very successful at this time. I am pleased with the outcome

I was very pleased with Dr. DeWald and the staff at Tucson Orthopedic Institute. I had been suffering from a long term hamstring injury and had tried PT and an injection with some relief. Six weeks ago, Dr. DeWald did a PRP injection and I have had steady improvement since then. I am looking forward to getting back to my regular activities at the gym and hiking. Thank you Dr DeWald!

I have been telling everyone about this procedure because I am so pleased with my results and am so happy. Dr. DeWald is such an easy doctor to work with. The procedure so much easier than I thought and it was nearly painless. I have recommended this procedure to so many people to avoid having a total knee replacement. I am pain free today!

The procedure was very easy and interesting. I was in pain for 2 days after, and the 3rd day I started walking again and it continued to improve as the days went by. I am now at 6 weeks and everything has been great. I am still doing physical therapy, and am a little sore after sometimes, as to be expected. I have had 7 surgeries in the past and never wanted surgery again. I am so pleased with my results and so impressed with Dr. DeWald that I have pursued options to have my back done as well. I am truly amazed with how the stem cell and PRP helped my knees. No knee surgery for this guy!

Dr. Dewald is very kind, attentive, and sensitive to the needs of the patient. He makes the most of your time with him and gives a diagnosis explanation. He communicates and listens as well...something some doctors arent very good at. I trust Dr. Dewald.

I had an achilles tendon injury that just would not heal with rest and restriction (rigid boot). After many frustrating months with no progress Dr. DeWald gave me a PRP injection. From that single treatment my healing and progress was dramatic and steady. I'm very satisfied with the care of Dr. DeWald and the effectiveness of the PRP treatment. MPT
