My right shoulder was useless so I got a total shoulder replacement, the inverted one. My strength and mobility before surgery was very very limited. December 13th, 2019 was The Day and 4 months later the outcome is impressive... from strength and mobility I am 95% and still progressing. No pain, no upsets ever. Being disciplined doing physical therapy and exercises is essential. Outcome exceeded my expectations... Dr. Sabesan is not only a great surgeon and a great person, but also great leader putting together an managing a fabulous team... she is a happy twister Great job Kuddos to Cleveland Clinic Thank you all and God Bless

In my opinion the Worst Mistake I Ever made was going to see this - doctor! The consequences of which I'll have to live with for the remainder of my life! I found her to be curt and unsympathetic! Medically? Personally I found her lacking! If I could have I would have given her zero stars but unfortunately that wasn't an option!!! My recommendation to any potential patients...go elsewhere!!

Our 16 yr old daughter had a terrible accident and thought she'd never play volleyball again. Dr. Sabesan made it possible, her confidence and passion gave us hope. I have never witnessed a Doctor that genuinely cares about their patients. She contacted the physical therapist herself, 2 weeks after surgery to ensure our daughter was getting the best after care. Dr. Sabesan is amazing and her staff is always on point, always pleasant and professional.. We are forever grateful !

Dr. Sabesan 's care for our 16 year old daughter has been a Godsend. Her personal attention & commitment to our daughter's orthopedic surgery & return to her sport was simply phenomenal. Dr. Sabesan put our minds at ease from the very beginning; her confidence assured us that we found the right surgeon. She always communicated with us throughout the entire process and her team's relentless energy & positive attitudes made this stressful event, more tolerable. Dr. Sabesan cares about her patients

As a first time patient of Dr. Sabesan, she made me feel as if she had known my history prior to me visiting. So friendly when I was in discomfort & gave me direct attention when answering my questions plus gave understandable explanations. Evidently she has passed along that friendliness attitude to her nurse trainee Sandra Koen. Highly recommend the team.

Dr. Sabesan is one more reason why I am so happy that I live near Cleveland Clinic. A few months ago we met her when my wife broke her wrist. Dr. Sabesan explained the options available, gave a recommendation after we requested it, and the non-surgical result was excellent. Her staff is also excellent. One gets the impression that happy people are treating you. We recommend Dr. Sabesan and her staff highly.

This was a terrible experience. She rushed in and out; prescribed a drug that was dangerous because of my existing heart condition,which indicated she did not review my record . For thumb arthritis gave me a drug I can't take or surgery. I had it injected under ultrasound which she dismissed and it worked. No bedside manner. I would not recommend her.

I had the worst experience of my life. She prescribed me an anti inflammatory that has an ingredient I am allergic to in it!!! It took 3 weeks to get a hold of her because her receptionists never called back my pharmacy. Finally about to get my anti inflammatory today but she was not there so her ta had to try to figure out what I can have.

I had the unfortunate experience of a torn bicep. I was referred to Dr. Sabesan and she immediately scheduled me for surgery. The procedure took abt 1 hr 30min and while initially I had a good amt of pain after the surgery, I can say that after a 6 wks, my bicep and arm are almost pain free and Im regaining strength each day. Dr Sabesan was very knowledgeable and direct about what she does. Im so happy to have been lucky enough to have Dr. Sabesan she is a blessing and I cant thank her enough :)
