My shoulder surgery has been much less painful than two others I have had with a different doc. It was also more extensive, so you might assume the opposite.

William Sterett ruined my life. During surgery, while under the care of Dr. Sterett, I got compartment syndrome on my lower "RIGHT" leg. Keep in mind they were operating on my "LEFT" knee. I will no longer be able to return to my normal active lifestyle. To this day, Dr. Sterett has yet to take ownership in destroying a perfectly health leg. Leaving me to deal with a lifetime of complications.

Having any kind of surgery is quite the undertaking, and finding the right surgeon for your procedure can be exhausting and nerve racking. After learning I had to undergo a complex knee surgery (torn meniscus, ACL, MCL, PCL), I did thorough research and narrowed my options down to 3 surgeons under 3 different companies. After meeting with all three, I can honestly say that Dr. Sterett is not only the best surgeon I could have gone with in the area, but the best surgeon in the country.

The two most impressive things about my experience with Dr. Sterett and the staff at VSO was the turn around time and his experience. I got injured on a Monday, had an MRI on Tuesday, a consult on Wednesday, and surgery on Thursday. That's unheard of back home where scheduling each of those appointments would have taken two or three weeks per appointment. I used the time for recovery instead. It was my first surgery and his expertise gave me confidence that I was going to be fine.
