After an auto accident Dr. Swanson repaired my shoulder and reattached a tendon that had been torn. He did a remarkable job and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I have coached baseball for years and have watched many kids go through this surgery. Because I had witnessed the recovery from this many times I was dreading the surgery. The initial pain level after surgery was significantly better than any other I had seen and even the pain levels during therapy were minimal. I was able to manage the pain without opioids after just a very short period. I have full range of motion everywhere except directly behind my back and this is improving every day. While doing the repair he cleaned up the joint damage from years of playing sports and swimming. The shoulder actually feels better now than before it was injured and I expect to be better than new in a few more months. I would not go to another surgeon for this type of surgery.
Dr. Swanson is amazing. I had surgery with another surgeon & the outcome was not good. It was a Workman’s Comp claim. The doctor cleared me to go back to work but I could not. I tried but it was too painful. WC found Dr. Swanson & made my appointment. I was so pleased. I have almost full range of motion after having second surgery for rotator cuff. He treated me with grace & dignity. Kendra was equally as good. Would recommend him to anyone!
