Pam D.

  • Reverse Shoulder Replacement

“I am 60 yrs. old. Today is Jan. 31, 2012, and 6 months ago, July 20, 2011, I had an RSR (Reverse Shoulder Replacement) by Dr. Mark Stewart. I've had multiple rotator cuff tears and surgery to repair them, however, with another huge tear, which could not be repaired again, a Reverse Shoulder Replacement was the option I chose to have a normal life. My right shoulder RSR has left me with very little to no discomfort or pain!!!!!! When asked about this shoulder surgery, I smile and explain "I would do it again without hesitation".

Physical Therapy seemed much easier than a rotator cuff repair, as protocal for the RSR, dictates that PT shouldn't start for 6 weeks post-op, then its an easy transition to active range of motion. Following the RSR PT protocol proved to be an exceptional treatment plan for me.

In the past Dr. Stewart has performed my cage fusion, and my multiple rotator cuff tear repairs. I trust his expertise completely and will continue to present any orthopedic needs, I have in the future, to him.

Thank you Dr. Stewart,

Pam Doan”

  • Cervical Fusion

“The pain in my arm and shoulder was not something I wanted to live the rest of my life with. When I woke up from surgery the pain was gone, I did not have to wear a collar, I have 100% range of motion and the scar is barely visible. If I had to do this again, I would not hesitate having Dr. Stewart perform this operation. Living in pain is crazy when the solution is so simple.”

“Today is February 21, 2012 and two weeks ago I had a total knee replacement on my left knee. Dr. Stewart operated on my right knee six years ago and did an excellent job with both surgeries. I had amazing results. I am pain free, never used a cane or walker and I'm back to my everyday life. I can't say enough about Dr. Stewart.”

“I came to see Dr. Stewart for spinal stenosis and arthritis of my lower back but was not a candidate for back surgery. Dr. Stewart suggested doing back injections. I had an extremely difficult time getting on the table to have the injections done. Within 3 days I had 100% relief and now have no problems laying down or getting up.”

“On August 13, 2009 I was t-boned in an intersection on my motorcycle. I broke my left arm and my left tibia and fibula. My bone was sticking out of my leg. Dr. Stewart did surgery and put an external fixator on my leg. I had two different types of external fixators on my leg for about a year. 20 months after the accident I returned to work full time, 7 days a week for 8-12 hours a day with no restrictions. My job requires climbing 20ft. ladders, and I have had no problems climbing them throughout the day.

In the past 3 weeks I am pain free with almost complete function of my leg. Thanks to Dr. Stewart I am able to do all the things I enjoyed doing prior to my accident hunting, trapping and walking.”

  • Thumb Joint Replacement

“I had surgery January 6, 2012 to replace my arthritic joint in my right hand. I suffered with pain for 3 yrs. When I awoke from surgery, the first thing I noticed was there was 'no pain'. thinking it was the anesthetic doing its' job, I continued with the pain pills the following day as prescribed just to make sure I wasn't going to feel anything. I took myself off the pain meds and waited for them to wear off and meet the devil. Guess what? I never had any pain. None whatsoever! I don't believe I needed to take the meds the following day. Exactly 34 days after surgery, the cast removed. The normal stiffness but still no pain. My wrist is tender, but Iâm working on rebuilding that strength. I couldn't be happier. I have symptoms in my left thumb as well. When the time comes, Dr. M. Stewart will be 'fixing' that one as well. Thank you for giving me my life back!”

  • Rotator Cuff Surgery

“Prior to surgery I was getting injections in my shoulder to help with the pain. It did not help much with the motion or ability to lift anything. After about 6 months the injections stopped helping with the pain so I decided to have Rotator Cuff surgery. Iâve been taking it easy around the house and only doing passive motion exercises in therapy but Iâm pain free. My physical therapist is very impressed with my results.”

  • Bilateral Total Hips

“12 years ago I had my left hip replaced and 2 years ago my right hip. Before having my right hip done I could not go up and down stairs using my right leg. After surgery I am capable to go up and down stairs normal and pain free. I am a pressman for the Bay City Times and the press is on the 4th story. After surgery I am capable to push over 24 one ton press rolls a day. I highly recommend Dr. Stewart and total hip surgery. I am pain free!”

  • Right Knee Replacement 2003, Left knee replacement 2006

“Dr. Stewart did a fantastic job of replacing my right knee in 2003 enough so I made an appointment to have my left knee replaced on 2006.

His attention to detail and his professionalism helped me make a full and prosperous recovery. Today I can get out and play with the grandchildren, work around my house, along with enjoying the outdoors (hunt, fish, hikes, etc.) with no pain and no medicine needed.

My older brother had his knee replaced by a Dr. in western New York and had nothing but trouble with it, infection set in and he was within hours of loosing his leg. I almost felt guilty with how well my replacements went, I told him he should have come here to have Dr. Stewart do the replacement surgery in the first place. Dr. Stewartâs attention to detail and his minimally invasive technique keeps infection from setting in.

I have recommended numerous friends & co-workers to set up an appointment with Dr. Stewart when I see them limping or hear them complaining about joint pain.”

“In October of 2011 I was bucked off a horse and landed in the push up position causing a scaphoid fracture to my right wrist. The pain was tremendous and I had no function of my right hand. Doctor Stewart did surgery on 10/31/11. It has been about 5 months since surgery and I am pain free and have full function back in my right hand. I have returned to work with no restrictions. I am very happy with my results.”

“I have had 2 total hip arthroplasy with a recent right hip revision. With all three surgeries I never had any problems with infection or any set backs and always a quick recovery. I had the hip revision 2 weeks ago. I'm walking with one crutch for balance and have very little pain. Everything went wonderfully, I couldn't be happier. I'm ready to get back to the things I enjoy. Thank you Dr. Stewart!”
