TESTIMONIALS

Thank you, Dr. Wei

I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Anthony Wei as my surgeon for a total replacement of my right shoulder joint last Dec. 3rd, 2014.

My experience in Vietnam left me with a souvenir from a sniper to my right shoulder which became arthritic with the years and painful. Now, almost three months after total replacement and the wonderful work of the Rebound Physiotherapy team, I am pain free and have regained over 90% of my mobility!

Thank you, Dr. Wei and the highly professional staff at Rebound Orthopedics!!

100% Recovery

Rebound guided me in proper progressive rehab and continued life activity exercises. Dr Wei did my rotator cuff surgery using screws and reattatchment fiber and I have 100% recovery. Last summer at age 61 I won 4 state swimming events and second in 2 events. Not bad considering knee replacements in 1999 and 2010 and shoulder surgery 2013.

Impressed by Dr. Wei







Dr. Wei has operated and fixed both of my rotator cuffs the which were injured several years apart. I was always impressed with the doctors ability and counsel regarding the surgery.

My own surgery though important was not the thing that was most impressive to me. A close friend who drove large semi trucks severely injured his rotator cuff while chaining up his truck. He was sent to a required doctor by the state industrial accident fund. After that surgery he was never ale to raise this arm any higher than chest level. I recommended that he see Dr. Wei. After the surgery by Dr. Wei my friend regained at least 80% movement in the arm and is currently able to live a reasonably normal life.

Back in Action Thanks to Dr. Wei

Dr. Wei fixed chronic shoulder pain, calcific tendonitis, and frozen shoulder. Today I practiced taekwondo for an hour, mowed two lawns, pulled weeds, fixed a broken window, replaced a light fixture, fixed some other little things, dug a big hole, and cleaned the house for a couple of hours. After a day like this, I keep expecting my shoulder to hurt a lot, but it doesn't at all. Thanks again to you and your team! It's so good to be able to work again.
