ACL reconstructive surgery

Dr. Fronek diagnosed my condition immediately prior to any MRI. Gave me options for what type of surgery that I wanted to have. Surgery went very well and I successfully rehabbed my knee in only 4 months .

Curteous surgeon and great and responsive office staff.... Unfortunately, failed ACL from the get go...... Had a revision done and was loose during rehab.... Doc said just don't push your tibia out (which happens every time you bend down). Than took pics of it and said I'm not sure ..... Specialty is definitely not ACL! Nice guy and very supportive, but onto my third ACL surgery with someone more knowledgable

I can't thank Dr. Fronek enough for repairing my badly damaged rotator cuff. He warned me it would be a painful recovery and indeed it was. But in comparison to friends with less severe damage who had surgery with other physicians, it was a breeze. The results are certainly worth it. In time I'll be having the other shoulder done by Dr. Fronek. Hope he doesn't retire. Brilliant!

shoulder problem

I went in for an exam and Dr Fronek said I needed an MRI. My insurance denied the claim and I have never heard from Froneks office unless I call them. I realize he is busy, I am in alot of pain.
