– Donald T.
“Dr. Fehnel operated on my right shoulder and I would highly recommend him for any shoulder issues. I had a torn rotator cuff, partially tore bicep and severely limited range of motion. As a lifelong tennis player, my shoulder has taken years and years of abuse. I was in my late 60's and this was going to be my first operation of any kind, so I was hesitant. I tried to rehab the shoulder first, with limited results. It was either have the operation or stop playing tennis. I was back hitting tennis balls and playing golf after four months. Serving took quite a bit longer, because of the overhead motion. I am so happy I had the surgery and chose Dr. Fenhel, as now my shoulder feels like it did when I was 25 years old.”
– Bruce C.
“Dr. Fehnel and staff were very caring and attentive. I would definitely recommend him!”

“This was the second shoulder surgery I have had with Dr. Fehnel. Twelve years ago he fixed my right shoulder, and he just recently did surgery on my left rotator tear. Previously last year, Dr. Polansky fixed my MCL on my right knee. I have very high regards for Sports Medicine North, and all who are a part of this wonderful group. Every person that I have come into contact with, has treated me with respect, care and compassion. I am in good hands and will always recommend the doctors at Sports Medicine North.”
