Watch the video above to learn how Orthopedic Institute helped a set of twin student athletes with matching ACL tears, the most common sports injury for women.
My daughter had an ACL repair and Meniscus Surgery following a gymnastics injury 10 months ago. I could not be happier with the entire experience with Orthopedic Institute. Dr. Looby is clearly an expert Orthopedic Surgeon and his staff including PA, Athletic Trainer and Physical Therapist is too. My daughters surgery went very well and her rehab has progressed nicely too. The physical therapist has kept me and her coaches informed about when it is safe to return to sports and it is obvious he really cares about her progress. My daughter is extremely satisfied with her progress in therapy as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Looby and his staff.
Dr Baumgarten gave us the answers to all of our questions and we are confident in his recommended treatment for our son’s baseball injury.
My experience with Dr. Baumgarten could not have been more pleasant. I felt very well taken care of through the entire process of my ACL reconstruction. His wealth of information and confidence in his profession assured me in my choice of surgeon. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal surgery experience.
Dr. Baumgarten and his staff are the BEST. They repaired my Rt. rotator in 2015 and now they did my left. I would not let anyone else work on my shoulders other than him. I play the infield on 2 softball teams and am a Firefighter. My shoulders take a lot of wear n tear. I need the best and they are the best. My right shoulder is stronger than ever and I am sure my left will be also. Thank you Dr. Baumgarten and staff
They have helped my daughter tremendously after tearing her ACL in Jan. Her goal over the summer was to be in competitive cheer in the fall and they got her there and now she should be ready for basketball season. I can’t thank them enough for pushing her through the pain and helping her achieve her senior year goals.
