If you go to Andrews for his expertise, you won't get it! He won't tell you this, but he has trainees perform the actual surgery. Ignore the "famous" names mentioned at his facilities, but if you are not a star athlete, you will get inferior treatment at Andrews Institute. Also, having post-op visits in the rehab center is just so they can bill for rehab even when none is done.
He is a caring, very knowledgeable surgeon. he operated on my sons shoulder and we were both extremely impressed with his professionalism and caring attitude.
