My family loves Dr. Isbell - Heidi Seitz

My husband, my son and I have all had Dr. Isbell as our surgeon. He has been, hands down, the best man for the job!! He puts his patients at ease with his wonderful bedside manner and truly cares about each person he sees. We have all had superb outcomes with our shoulder and knee surgeries. And as repeat "customers" we are obviously beyond satisfied with our care.

Botched shoulder reconstruction

As a direct and proximate result of a shoulder operation by Dr. William M. Isbell, I have endured Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a neurological pain syndrome, for the last 11 years. In addition to the neurological consequences, Dr. Isbell additionally sewed my shoulder capsule too tightly, rendering me with expressly limited range of motion despite approx 9 consecutive months of physical therapy. In order to allow the arm to move freely, it was necessary that I have another shoulder reconstruction to loosen the capsule. A shoulder specialist at Duke was able to repair the shoulder capsule itself, but was not able to alleviate the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy which has plagued me EVERY SINGLE DAY of my life ever since Dr. Isbell operated on my shoulder. I cannot stress enough the physical, financial, mental & emotional toll this neurological illness has caused me and the impact upon my family.

Dr. Willliam Isbell MD is the best

You will not find a more personable and caring doctor than Dr. Isbell. He is the best! Not only is he the best shoulder surgery doctor in North Carolina, but he doesn't have a "surgeon's attitude." He treats you like you are the only patient he has for that day and he spends the time to answer your questions. He actually sits down with you and gives you his total attention.
