Patient Testimonials
  • In March 2017 I became a patient of Dr. Benjamin Sears who performed rotator cuff surgery on my left arm. I was very pleased with Dr. Sears at each appointment and prior to the surgery. He was very caring, encouraging and supportive with my PT progress. I was also pleased with the location of the surgery and the staff there. I would highly recommend Dr. Sears to anyone who needs this type of surgery. -Cynthia

  • "Dr. Benjamin Sears did my total shoulder replacement and I could not be happier. From the initial consultation, through the surgery and all follow-up visits he always took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions to my total satisfaction. I would highly recommend him for shoulder surgery. I was in total pain prior to the surgery and now 6 months later I have full use of the replaced shoulder. Thank you Dr. Sears."-Eric

  • Benjamin W. Sears, M.D. did an incredible job (Latarjet/Coracoid Process Transfer). My shoulder would dislocate If somebody breathed on it in the wrong way. Now I have an arm that is stronger than it ever was before. I'll let the picture speak for itself. Thank you Dr Sears, great work!!-Daniel
