Dr Higgs preformed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder along with a bicep tendon repair, subacrommial decompression, etc. i attended pt for a year and saw dr higgs monthly. i received multiple cortisone injections, and to no avail, my shoulder continues to hurt and cause limitations. now, nearly 3 years later, i continue to suffer....got another opinion....lo and behold my rotator cuff is completely torn and requires surgery. following shoulder surgery, i developed severe left leg pain which dr higgs assured me he could do a quick fix....an it band release. i trusted his expertise and had surgery. now, not only do i have unbearable left leg pain, but i have a 5 inch scar on my left thigh. after dr higgs left the practice, i determined from another doctor that my leg pain was coming from my back...collasped disc at l5 S1.. needless to say i would never recommend dr higgs or orthova, none of their doctors helped me.
Dr. Higgs made me feel at ease the moment that I met him. I knew that something was wrong with my shoulder; however, I had no idea that the issue would lead to surgery. I had researched orthopedists on line and selected Dr. Higgs because of his experience and positive write-ups. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Higgs & all of the staff members in the operating area were true professionals and made me feel very comfortable before the surgery. I have recommended Dr. Higgs to several of my friends, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedist. He is an A+++++ doctor!
