In March, Dr. Chiappetta performed a laminectomy on me. Prior to surgery, I was in a significant amount of pain and discomfort, & was forced to sit and rest after no more than 10 minutes of being on my feet. My legs and feet also started to tingle when I was standing or walking, and then soon went numb. 2 months after this procedure, my wife and I were at Epcot in Disney World, and I was on my feet for over 5 hours without the need to sit down…and I had no pain! Just wanted to thank Dr. Chiappetta for a job well done…
Dr. Harwood and team replaced my hip and gave me my life back! After 4 weeks I attended the BottleRock Music Festival and now, about 12 weeks out, I am almost 100%
Lindsey of UOA was an excellent therapist. She did a complete analysis of my problem, then came up with a plan. The exercises were very helpful and relieved my pain. I will recommend UOA to family and friends.
I have been suffering with knee pain for several years. Tried physical therapy but never with results like I’ve gotten at this facility. I found the staff to be very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend to anyone requiring physical therapy rehabilitation.
Dr. Schafer saw my husband in April. We were referred to him because of a lump on his foot. He was the 4th doctor we had seen. Before seeing Dr. Schafer, we were told that he wouldn’t be able to remove it because the lump was not vascular. At the appointment, Dr. Schafer expressed concern and referred us to Dr. Francis Patterson who we saw the following week. After a biopsy of the lump, he was scheduled for surgery in 2 weeks. Dr. Schafer was the first doctor in a year to raise concern and get us where we needed to go. We will be forever grateful for that. Angel’s prognosis is hopeful and I truly believe it’s thanks to Dr. Schafer.

A couple of months ago my wife and I went on a 10 day riverboat cruise on the Rhine River. The trip involved a lot of walking through cities and towns in Germany, including climbing through castles, windmills, and museums, among other points of interest. Through it all my ankle held up fine, with no problems at all.
There is no way I could have done all this without Dr. Fleming’s outstanding ankle replacement surgery. I thank him very much for making it possible to go into my 80’s without limping along continually.
In 1996 Drs. Harwood and Butler did a hip fusion reversal and total hip replacement on my left hip. This gave me a new lease on life. For the first time since I originally broke/dislocated my hip in 1966, I was pain free. It is now 27 years later and I’m still going strong.
I know GOD sent me to Dr. Lu for a reason! I had a horrific accident at work that shattered my humerus, and believe me it was far from funny! I was scared, nervous, apprehensive and the last thing I ever wanted was surgery. Dr. Lu was so compassionate, caring, informative, supportive and ALWAYS listened to my thoughts and concerns. I was never rushed and he always legitimately cared for my well being, not just physically but emotionally and mentally as well. He treated me for over 15 months and I wish I could just go and sit and talk with him now! The entire staff was just wonderful as well. They wore smiles every minute! If I could give them all 100 stars I would!!
On May 20, 2022, I had a fluke bicycling accident, low speed with no other bicycle or car involved. I hit a small pile of sand on a sharp turn. The front tire washed out. I went down on my right side with all my weight landing on my right upper femur/hip area resulting in an upper trochanter femur/hip fracture. I had a rod inserted from my hip to my knee, 2 screws in my hip, and 2 screws in my knee. After PT and a slow, steady return to cycling, I’m now back to full strength, full speed. I can’t imagine life w/o cycling. Thank you so much Dr. Baione!
