“As a recently discharged patient of Dr. Theodore Wolfson, I am most grateful. He is knowledgeable and skilled in all aspects of the shoulder, is a patient, caring and professional surgeon, and just a great person! I’m an older, active woman referred to Dr. Wolfson for an injury which resulted in a displaced fracture of the humerus. At the initial visit and after reviewing test results, Dr. Wolfson felt surgery was not necessary. He was very willing to take the time to answer my numerous questions which allowed me to better understand the next steps, the healing process and be more active in my recovery. He described how the injury would heal with patience and later, PT – but he kept an eye on the fracture. Frequent x-rays confirmed that decision – healing was occurring without surgery. Two months of arm/shoulder immobility in a splint and two more months of PT, and my range of motion and strength are back to pre-injury.

“I highly and sincerely recommend Dr. Theodore Wolfson – his skill, knowledge, kindness, and patient communication style – resulted in a very positive outcome. Thank you, Dr. Wolfson!”

“Dr. Wolfson did a shoulder replacement on me over a year ago. I have had excellent results with full range of motion since the 4 month post-op mark. I highly recommend him. He is kind, professional, and an extremely talented surgeon. I am so grateful to him.”

“I highly recommend Dr. Wolfson. He treated my daughter’s broken clavicle and our experience has been fantastic. Dr. Wolfson made her (and me) feel at ease from the first appointment and took his time to explain his recommended treatment and approach with this type of injury.”

“Dr. Wolfson is THE best MD I have had in over 30 years! He is not only brilliant, but the easiest doctor to talk to and an amazing human being. I have had the trifecta of his specialties (shoulder, hip & knees), and he has been so great with finding solutions to all. He did a great job on the surgery of my fractured hip this past December. I just can’t say enough about him!”
