I had a serious complication from a different surgeon and he took the time to carefully review my options based on what had happened and give me a reasonable option. He the reoperated and I finally recovering. He is not arrogant like most orthopedists and he actually listened. His nurse Andrea is amazing!

I am a retired orthopedic surgeon. I chose to have Dr. Levine do my surgery. The results were phenomenal. He also did two total shoulder replacements on my mother. Again with excellent results I fully trust him and his team

I was referred to Dr. Levine from a mutual friend. I heard he was one of the best in his field. I’m no strangers to implants, I have a hip implant. The operation some years earlier by another great surgeon went well, very well. Being an athlete and hearing about Dr. Levine’s experience sold me, not to say I wasn’t stressed because I was very stressed. It’s been 3 weeks since my operation. All I can say is the stress was uncalled for. I am amazed at the progress I’ve made in 3 weeks and so is my physical therapist. Little to no pain and the pain I do have isn’t as bad as the pain I went through for the last 5 years. This operation has gone so well my Physical therapist is amazed at how much flexibility I have so soon after the operation. The only thing you can contribute to the success of this operation is the OPERATOR.. My doctor….Dr. Levine. I can’t thank him and his team enough and I can’t thank my friend that put us together. Our relationship isn’t over. My left should will have to

Shoulder Replacement – Apr 09, 2021
Dr levine is the best. I mean the very best. His surgical skill are outstanding and he is courteous and takes the time to explain everything in detail. He repaired 3 tears in my right rotator cuff 2.5 years ago and it's like new now. And January he repaired a tear in my left rotator cuff. I highly recommend him to all in need of his talents.

After a failed left shoulder replacement surgery at Hospital of special surgery . I was recommended to Dr Levine by my Cardiologist at Saint Francis Hospital. Dr Levine was patient, answered all my questions and took action as how to correct the problem. He showed me the x-rays and immediately was able to pinpoint the problem . I was in so much pain. Dr. Levine fit me into his operating schedule and in 2 weeks I had my reverse shoulder revision. The Allen Hospital was wonderful! I have had 2 follow up appointments with Doctor Levine and he and his staff are so amazing. I'm currently starting physical therapy. I am so thrilled at the result only 6 weeks after surgery. I feel so lucky to have found such a caring and concerned Dr. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Levine and the Columbia group of professionals!
