Great doctor

I have had both knees replaced by this kind physician and now looking to repair a ripped rotator cuff. He did an excellent job on both my knees. He is honest and tells you what can and cannot be done. He gives you options and lets you know what he would advise but ultimately leaves the decision to you.

Git'er Done

Great Man and Physician. Took all the questions and concerns I had seriously plus answered them honestly. 7 years now right one is doing great. the left one I crushed it and had to have it redone. still used it for another 1.5 years until I had the revision surgery. Just remember as much as it hurts, after the incision heals you cant hurt it. bend that knee past when it hurts otherwise your wasting you time replacing it. wimps you know who you are. It true. Thanks again Doc.

Absolutely The Best Orthopedic Surgeon

If you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon look no further. I would highly recommend Dr. Scott Southard. He is a very caring doctor which is a rarity nowadays. Dr. Southard took the time to listen to my concerns and he explained the different options for my ACL knee surgery. I had my surgery on Wednesday morning and by noon I walked out of the hospital with a brace. I went back to work two days later and was back in the gym the next Monday. My husband and I were amazed at my progress. We both knew that I made the right choice for the most experienced and qualified orthopedic surgeon in northern Nevada and California. It has been 7 years since my surgery and I have not had one problem with my knee. Even though no one wants to have a ACL surgery, I was extremely satisfied with my result.
