I was referred by my PT and Dr. Sussman immediately understood what was wrong and how to fix it. Procedure and follow up care were smooth and seamless.

Referred as a non surgical option for a shoulder injury, and couldn’t be happier. Treatment along with the PT has driven a huge positive result. Significant range of motion improvement, planning on deep sea fishing for the first time in over a year!

Five years I had the “normal” carpo tunnel surgery on my right hand. The recovery was long and tedious. It took me five years to make the decision to do it again. Thank goodness I found Dr. Sussman. I had the surgery on a Thursday, drove myself home and was back at work banquet serving on Saturday! I never even had to take any pain medication. So glad I found him and had the surgery.

I had been suffering with hip pain for many years and was told there was nothing I could do but PT and cortisone, neither of which were working anymore. Dr. Sussman recommended Tenex and said he believed I would be helped by the procedure. I had the procedure done two weeks ago. Minimal pain and recovery. Hoping it worked!

Dr. Sussman is really one of the best physicians I’ve ever had care for me. I’ve had chronic pain and several other issues for a long time and I’ve seen countless specialists for these ailments. I saw Dr. Sussman for hip pain and a nasty nerve pinch plaguing my left hip (for 6 months). I tried PT, Acupuncture and massage prior…each helped slightly but didn’t fix the issue. Dr. Sussman diagnosed it as SI joint dysfunction. He started with a cortisone injection which helped a bit and proved that it was the in fact my SI joint. He then did a PRP injection a couple months later. It was a bit stiff and sore for a couple days (as expected) but now it’s doing amazing! Just a week after the injection, I snowboarded in Colorado for 3 days straight and didn’t have any pain or any nerve pinches! Dr. Sussman is incredible. You can tell he truly cares about his patients and wants the best for us. I highly recommend seeing him for any of your own issues!

Dr. Sussman took the time to diagnose and start treatment for several chronic injuries I've had. I'm continuing to receive care for them and he was much more aggressive in diagnosing and treating these injuries than other providers I've seen. He actually figured out the cause of a year-long injury I've had and I'm getting a procedure to hopefully address it.

After many months of PT and chiropractic care I wuss skeptical as to what could give me relief and return me to an active lifestyle. I met Dr. Sussman and after my initial exam, I was scheduled for a TENEX procedure for hip bursitis. I am now 2 months past the procedure and feeling so much better.

Dr. Sussman was able to diagnose an issue I have had for over 15 years that no doctor was able to identify or treat correctly. He saved my life in many ways! I honestly believe he is one of the most sincere and truly caring doctors/people I know and I will forever be grateful for his support and help! He is genius in what he does!

Dr. Sussman was very thorough and is the King of the ultrasound and Tenex. I have had several procedures by him that have saved me from more invasive surgeries. All well done. He is always in the know about current research and alternatives. Highly recommended by me and my husband. Cheryl Washwell
