Dr. Isbell is not only an awesome surgeon but an amazing person who genuinely cares about your well being and life after surgery. The operation is just the beginning as he wants to help you get back to a level of functionality that meets your expectations and allows you to perform at a level that is consistent with where you were pre-surgery. Obviously a difficult goal but one that he strives to achieve.

Dr. Isbell is professional, informative, and easy to talk with. He has a wonderful sense of humor which combined with his expertise in surgery, is everything I look for in a surgeon. Great results for rotator cuff surgery. I highly recommend him.

Each visit with Raleigh Orthopaedic and Dr. Isbell has been efficient, professional and informative. I felt a genuine attitude of caring for my well-being and received frank, clear feedback to my questions and concerns. Not only do I have a new shoulder, but I feel I have new friends who care about my recovery on a personal level and not just as another case. I would definitely recommend Dr. Isbell to my family and friends.
