Specialties

Dr. Edwin A Hissa has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

consult

I was quite apprehensive about seeing him due to the negative reviews, but we found him to be pleasant and informative. Diagnosed problem and made appropriate referral. Would see him again.

Very Serious at first!

I broke my ankle in 3 places I think he called it a Trimacular. I believe that I received the very best care from this surgeon and his team. Very afraid right before entering surgery because he did not greet me in pre-op just walked up and was very serious about the paperwork and file in front of him. I guess that's a good thing. He has in every follow up appointment been personable and open to questions whether you like the answer or not. I followed his orders to a T. His credentials are very good when I did the research and he seems to love this small town type community and its people. Glad he is Here!!

Rude and arrogant

After 5 surgeries my wife convinced me to see a professional. Very rude and arrogant to both of us. Suggested we were lying about my compliance to his orders. Have never encountered any medical professsional so unprofessionable!

Wants to see if mother nature will heal a broken bone?

Upper humurus fracture, the ends of the bones were not even facing each other. Dr. Hissa, instead of arranging surgery, opted for a sling and a 'wait to see what mother nature will do.' The bone had already been broken for two weeks, we were referred by the ER in our local hospital. We were to see Dr. Miller, but he was out of town. All Dr. Hissa wanted to do was prescribe low dose pain meds.

Will talk down to you. Waste of time!

He stops you in the middle of a sentence and scolds you for not answering his question the way he wanted. He has no bedside manner. He wants a yes or no answer because he isn't interested in hearing about your pain. He will mock you if you repeat your symptoms. Please don't waste your time with this "Dr" as I did. I would never recommend him to anyone. There is a reason I got in to see him so easily. Beware.
