Dr Lyons accurately diagnosed my shoulder issue. Performed surgery to correct these issues and now I'm much better then before surgery. Can do things I haven't been able to for years, like sleep on my left shoulder and use my left arm to drive.

I call Dr. Lyons my "prince" for several reasons. He is a wonderful doctor who performed my knee replacement, checked up on me, and has had the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever been to. His physical therapy staff and his personal staff are second to NONE. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone. His office is first class on so many levels and his entire staff are so efficient, polite and just wonderful people. Karen Dalesandro

Dr Lyons. and his staff Were phenomenal, extremely personable and very caring. Surgery performed on me when extremely well and the score was minimal. His assistant Miss Deb was outstanding and your help setting up other appointments! Dr. Lyons was extremely personable very caring and upfront with me and my healing process. Thanks so much Dr. Lyons you were a blessing!

Dr. Thomas Lyons is knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He and his staff are diligent in their profession. Along with his PT, Lila, I was recovering quickly. Four months out of surgery, and I am doing planks and pushups, along with many other exercises. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Lyons and his staff.

Great experience with Dr Lyons and the staff at Orthopedic Center for Sports Medicine. Dr Lyons performed shoulder surgery in July and six weeks later, I was released. Luckily, it was a torn rotator cuff, but he did fix my torn bicep and cleaned out the bone spurs. Recovery was quick and overall, I experienced little to no pain. The PT's at OCSM were also great, working with me at least twice a week and left me with good exercises to do on my own. Overall, a great experience.

My name is Jimmy Crisham, I just had surgery on my left shoulder to attach my biceps muscle. Dr. Lyons did my surgery, and it went so good I was just released from physical therapy with full range of motion and no pain after five weeks. I have had shoulder surgery before from other Doctors but none as good as this one.He is the BEST.

Dr. Lyons repaired rotator cuff tears (one complete tear and one partial) removed some bone spurs and some arthritic damage while he was at it. His counsel was cautious and spot on. He is very experienced with this surgery. I heard many negative stories about this surgery but my experience was nothing like that. After a couple months of physical therapy I have almost all of my range of motion back and gaining strength every day.

Dr. Lyons is a very good doctor. He will only do surgery as a last resort. He is and excellent Doctor. I had rotator cuff surgery and had no problems at all, but I heard horror story's from people at Therapy about other Doctors.
