ACL/Meniscus Quad tendon Graft

Dr. Cunningham is the most genuine and knowledgeable doctor I have ever had for an injury. He chose to use a Quadricep Tendon for my ACL graft and it is working out great. He chose this graft due to my age and its durability(thickness) knowing that I would be putting a beating on the future knee while skiing, mountain biking, and playing soccer. I could not be more stoked to have had him as my surgeon through such a tough experience. Even when my insurance company was working against me, I was always well cared for by him and his team. I highly recommend using Dr. Cunningham if you ever have a knee or shoulder injury. This man knows what is up!

Excellent bedside manners!

I was quite nervous about my ACL/meniscus surgery as I am an active person but Dr. Cunningham listen to my concerns and put me right at ease. I felt at peace going into surgery because right from the start, he clearly explained what I should expect in the coming days and months . He cleared stated my recovery plan and its timeline. Dr. Cunnigham is very calm and patient. I never felt rushed before/after the procedure or the follow up appointments, he always took the time to answer my questions clearly and in detail. I really felt like I wasn't part of a number but a patient that he was determined to get back to full activity asap and in the best possible condition.

Dr. Cunningham is an competent and talented surgeon! I traveled from Fort Collins to have Dr. Cunningham do my ACL repair because I wanted the best surgeon. Dr. Cunningham called me personally to see how I was doing, and he was genuinely concerned about my recovery and ability to get back to the things I love doing. He spent time gaining an understanding of my lifestyle and my objectives, and developed a plan that would get me there. I can't say enough about him, and would recommend him over and over again!
