Dr. Lopez & his CNP Janette did an excellent job in the operating room correcting my two problems. Both individuals have the patient’s interest in mind and are willing to spend the time with you to answer all questions.
I highly recommend this team to anyone in need of an orthopaedic specialist.

I re-injured my left shoulder, damaging ligaments and tendons that had been fixed 32 years ago and doing some other damage to the bicep muscle and other things, just to make it a real mess. It left me with a range of motion like a Rock’em-Sock’em Robot toy.
Dr. Lopez was highly recommended by friends, so I went to visit and he has been 100% thorough every step of the way. Surgery took several hours due to the mess I’d made of things, but the outcome has been amazing. I didn’t have to take any pain medication after the first night. The day after surgery, I was at my desk answering e-mails and I didn’t miss any days of work.
I have been going to physical therapy in Dr. Lopez’s office working with Steve Friedeman, a doctor of PT who has a workout room there, and my progress has been excellent. I have greater range of motion now than I had from the first surgery when I was 17 and I am now 50 years old.
