Best Doctor I've ever seen

Excellent Doctor, considers surgery a last resort. Try PT and guided exercise first. Great personality. No rush, discusses and answers all questions. He has repaired both shoulders torn rotator cuffs to full range of motion and both knees torn meniscus. Won't see anyone else.

Great job Dr. Elrod!

Thankful to have had Burton's dad patch me up as a youngster and very happy I was able to arrange Burton to repair a really bad rotator cuff. Based on the pictures and what he told my wife after surgery then told me at post-op visit, I think many other surgeons would have taken the easier path but he stayed with it for what was ultimately a 3-hour surgery. Physical therapist was impressed with range of motion on first visit after reading how much repair had taken place. The entire staff at Elite was great as well.

Recommended to me by another surgeon

I was sent to Dr. Elrod by a surgeon in AL, because of his reputation for being one of the best in the Southeast. In fact, I was sent to him because he is famous for being able to repair unsuccessful surgeries performed by other doctors. He and his staff took time with me, because I had been traumatized by a injury at work. I will always remember their kindness and also their humor. Dr. Elrod spent a lot of time with me; he reassured me and helped me navigate through a very difficult time (and he didn't charged extra for the emotional therapy! lol) He is just that caring. He did my surgery over 20 years ago and I am still going strong. I always be indebted to Dr. Elrod and I'll always highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Elrod operated on my knee to correct the surgery of another doctor. He is absolutely the BEST surgeon this side of the Mississippi river. It's been 20 years and I'm still dancing!
