This is to thank Dr. Fitzgerald for the miraculous job he did on my shoulder (shoulder encapsulation reconstruction) My rotator cuff was gone! Using a new procedure just invented in Jan. 2015, he rebuilt my rotator cuff and I am now pain-free and have FULL mobility back after three months. And I was almost totally pain-free right out of the recovery room. I cannot recommend him highly enough as a wonderful surgeon conducting state of the art procedures.

When my knee pain became intolerable, a trusted friend recommended Dr. Mark Fitzgerald. I’m so glad I took her advice! Dr. Fitzgerald gently led me through the diagnostic testing, and gave me cortisone shots to keep the pain within bounds. When we decided together to have a total knee replacement, he sent me for a CAT scan to capture high-definition images of my knee. These were sent to Medacta International in Switzerland, where they designed and built a custom joint package for Dr. Fitzgerald to use in my surgery. As a result, my new knee is in perfect alignment and works beautifully. Both Dr. Fitzgerald and the Sky Ridge Medical Center made every effort to prevent infection, manage my pain, and speed my recovery. From first consultation to final visit, Dr. Fitzgerald delivered professionally organized patient education and answered every question thoroughly. As a registered nurse for 46 years, I truly appreciated his effort and caring. My recovery has been awesome, and I have a slim, straight, rapidly fading scar!

He could spend a little more time with the patient. I didn't now what questions to ask, until I was already out of the office. He could explain more thoroughly the problem and procedures to correct the problem.

I had clean MRIs on my right shoulder, which caused my first two doctors to try to shoo me away and tell me that nothing was wrong. My first two doctors didn't listen to me describe my pain and didn't listen when I told them that I had been trying physical therapy for 7 years. Their answers were "try physical therapy" as though I hadn't already been doing that for the better half of a decade. They basically didn't want to actually help me.Dr. Fitzgerald listened to me. He really took the time to listen to what I had to say and because of that he was able to figure out what was wrong with my shoulder. He asked me to try physical therapy once more (the difference with him, was that he actually listened to me and simply wanted me to give it one last try) and when that failed, he told me my options, gave the pros and cons of possibly having surgery and left it for me to decide based on how bad my pain was. He thoroughly explained to me what was happening in my shoulder and really took the time to talk with me and help me. I didn't feel like just another patient. Dr. Fitzgerald was wonderful to work with and did amazing work on my shoulder. After a surgery to tighten the ligaments in my shoulder and repair my labrum, I was told my recovery would take anywhere from 4 to 6 months. After a month in a sling, I spent a month in physical therapy and was fully recovered after just 2 months. Between his work as a surgeon, and his rehab plan for both my time in a sling and my time in physical therapy, he definitely knows what he's doing. I'm 100% pain free and have never felt better. Bravo Dr. Fitzgerald
