Dr. Baumgarten repaired a torn meniscus. Also had quite a few injections to lubricate my knee. Many people complain of great discomfort when this is done, but I never had this problem. Dr. Baumgarten's precision injecting was always perfecto! Wonderful doctor!

Very relaxed approach and makes a true connection with his patients. Haven't met a patient of his yet to say anything bad. His job repairing my torn right labrum was excellent. My recovery could not be going better. Exceptional work!
