Have been seeing Dr David Bell for about 15 years. Had both rotator cuffs repaired (excellent job, excellent follow up) had both knees meniscus repaired. Have referred several co workers/athletes who now feel the same.

Shoulder surgery

Having shoulder surgery is never fun! I couldn't have been happier with my experience at Bell Sports Medicine. Surgery went great and rehab did also. My shoulder is so much stronger, only wish my right was as strong. When the time comes I will have the right done with Dr. Bell, he is the best!

Knee Surgery

Dr Bell did a debriment on the cartilage on my knee, which was not needed and has led to me now facing a knee replacement. He did the surgery for the sake of doing surgery, having done much research (which I wish I had done prior to meeting Dr Bell) it is widely considered that this type of surgery is more detrimental to the long term condition of the knee
