“I first came to know Dr. Mattheos when he treated my youngest daughter Molly for a knee strain she sustained while playing High School hockey. I having been working in the workers compensation claims field for over 35 years and I know and have access to some of the best orthopedic surgeons in Boston. I found Dr. Mattheos to as good as any of them. He has a great bed side manner and tells it like it is. He took care of my daughter so when I injured my knee I went to him. I had treated at the NE Baptist in the past the and he did a great job. I recommend him all the time.”

“Dr. Mattheos was very knowledgeable and had a great rapport with my son. His surgery was more complicated than the MRI showed, but the tear was repaired with no complications. Dr. Mattheos called us a couple of hours after we left the hospital to speak with my son and see if we had any questions or concerns! His personality is perfect for student athletes. Every appointment we had, the staff was very professional and friendly. Overall a great experience.”

“My experience with Dr. Mattheos was all that I hoped for. Prior to the operation (total knee replacement) everything was totally outlined for me from pre-op to recovery. This was helpful to turn my trepidations from anxiety into confidence. His emphasis on working hard at PT was constantly on my mind and helped me through the process. His staff was all encouraging and professional. Truly a great and successful experience. Ask questions if you are fearful and the answers will build your confidence.”

“My son, Conrad, is has been seen by approximately half of the staff at Sports Medicine North for multiple sports-related injuries. The Peabody and Newburyport offices are amazing! Friendly, clean, positive environment, willingness to help, genuine concern for patient well being, the convenience of appointments. Our most recent visit was with Dr. Mattheos. Although my son is a great negotiator, I would not let him return to the playing field without personally speaking with his doctor. Not only is Dr. Mattheos his doctor, but he is also our family referee, LOL. Love, love, love Sports Medicine North!”

“What impressed me most about Dr. Mattheos was the care he took to provide a balanced picture of my recovery from rotator cuff surgery. My physical therapy played out just as he had predicted and today I enjoy full use of my arm and shoulder. Within a day of returning home from surgery he called me to check that my medication was effective. My follow-up appointments were always effective as pep talks that I was on my way to normal use of my arm. I recommend Dr. Mattheos anytime I speak with someone about rotator cuff surgery.”

“I had a totally great experience with Dr. Mattheos as my doctor. From the start, he explained the truth about the situation with my knee and I had no doubts about having the MAKO procedure done to correct it. As of this date, it's been 9 weeks out from having the procedure, and I have full movement of the knee again with no pain. Physical Therapy afterwards was key to my recovery and I cannot say enough gratitude for everyone who was involved with me during this whole time. As a matter of fact, I am presently starting the process again with Dr. Mattheos to see what I can do with my other knee, and if another MAKO procedure would be appropriate. If so, I'm certainly going to have it done again with him and his staff. I have always been an active/outdoors person and getting back that quality of life to me is a god send!!! Thank you again Dr. Steven Mattheos and your staff, big, big!!!”
