      Total shoulder replacement 2012. Couldn't be happier. He did a great job. He also did arthroscopic surgery on my knee in 2000 and have had no problems since. He is a good Christian, I highly recommend Dr Todd Chistensen

      Don't go this Dr for carpal tunnel surgery. He did my right hand and damaged the nerve in my hand and now I have to have it redone! I went to the office immediately after I had surgery because I knew something wasn't right and was told it was normal to have numbness for a while after .when I finally saw Dr for my follow up . He just kept saying " I have never cut a nerve" Well he did and now my hand is permanently damaged!

      Its 2:03 a:m.....I am crying right now....as I sit and listen to my husbands knee cracking from across our bedroom as he walks to the restroom. This knee replacement was done in Auburn Ca. April of 2012', ...On my husbands follow up appointments, even though we asked Dr. Christensen to PLEASE feel my husbands knee, did not touch his knee one time!!!!! My husband is 79, will not go through another surgery, he is scared to have this fixed...this has ruined both our lives, this is horrible...

      Dr. Christensen is great! He did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my wrist. I was very pleased with Dr. Christensen as a doctor and the outcome was great. It's been several years since my surgery and I haven't had any problems. I highly recommend Dr. Christensen!
