    “I was diagnosed in February 2015 torn rotator cuff, labral tear, etc. Dr. Nelson was able to reconstruct my entire left shoulder. He successfully removed the metal plate and 10 screws in my clavicle from the accident from 3 years ago and completely repaired my rotator cuff injury as well as my labrum tear that was also a result of the accident. I can’t say enough about Dr. Nelson and his staff. They are very professional and care a lot about their patients and what’s more he is up-to-date on all the latest procedures. My recovery was very expedient because his surgery was beyond excellent. My shoulder is not like it was 20 years ago but for a 41-year-old man that works hard for a living it works great. Nelson will be my go to for any orthopedic needs.”

    “We both had both our knees replaced by Dr. Nelson and his great medical team. In preparing us for the surgeries, Dr. Nelson was VERY thorough in his explanations regarding the surgeries and the physical therapy following the operations. He was extremely kind, knowledgeable and honest about every aspect of the procedures. We obviously have complete faith and trust in his skills or we would not have returned to have him repeat the process. He is a great doctor and a great person.

    We’re back playing racquetball, hiking, swimming and other very physical activities that have been painful or impossible for 30 years. The surgeries have been life changing in the best ways possible.

    We give Dr. Keith Nelson our highest and most enthusiastic recommendation. ”
    — Lyn and Mike

    “Playing in over 35 major college football games takes its toll on a body. From shoulder surgery, to ligament sprains, to tendinitis, to a lower back injury, Dr. Nelson was able to provide the plan and care necessary to get me back on the field as quickly as possible. I have been to multiple specialists in big cities, but the care I received from Dr. Nelson and his staff was on par or better than any of those. Dr. Nelson’s background in athletics allows him to understand the mentality of an athlete and the desire to get back on the field safely, but quickly . For any sports injury, whether requiring surgery or non-operative treatment, I would recommend Dr. Nelson to anyone looking to get back, stay back, and be at their best.”
    — Riley
    “Dr. Nelson performed surgery on my left shoulder after two previous attempts from other surgeons to fix my problem. Dr. Nelson was able to correct the issue. The pain was very minimal after surgery as well. When previous surgeries were performed the pain was excruciating. My recovery time was minimal, physical therapy was great and my shoulder is 90% better than it was before. Thank you Dr. Nelson and your staff for being so professional and taking care of my needs.”
    — Kim
    “Dr. Nelson’s personal approach in repairing my ACL made surgery an easy experience. I’m back to doing all the things I love doing outdoors and my knee feels stronger than ever.”
