As a direct & proximate result of the shoulder operation performed by Dr. William M. Isbell, I’ve endured Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (neurological pain syndrome) since 2005. Dr. Isbell additionally sewed my shoulder capsule too tightly, rendering expressly limited range of motion & necessitating a 2nd shoulder reconstruction. A Duke shoulder specialist was able to repair the structural damage, but no surgery could alleviate the incurable RSD symptoms which have plagued me EVERY MINUTE of EVERY DAY since Dr. Isbell operated on my shoulder. I suffer mercilessly, but I’m not the only one. RSD has adversely impacted all in my family and any & all relationships I’ve had, friendships or otherwise. It has stripped my finances, decimated my livelihood & squandered my future. I cannot stress enough the extreme physical, financial & mental toll caused by this merciless illness & the adverse impact it has had upon my family.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Isbell. He has provided care for my son through 2 shoulder surgeries due to football. Dr. Isbell does very through exams, explains what has to be done and how he will perform the surgery. He meets with you pre and post surgery to make sure you are well informed. During his office visits, he does not run as soon as he is completed with his portion of the exam, he take a little extra time to get to know you and chats with his patients. All around an excellent Ortho DR

The BEST SURGEON I have ever met. My shoulder surgery turned out great. Good results from day one. He is the first surgeon to make me feel he really cared about me with all my health issues. He is so compassionate and friendly I immediately felt at ease. I really felt I could talk to him about anything and he was taking all the time I needed. He is so relatable and down to earth. I felt more than just a patient more like someone he really cared to see completely well and happy. Great experience.
