- Meniscectomy (arthroscopy)
“Profile: Retired machinist, 61 years old, cancer survivor. I've been uber-active my entire adult life including running, swimming, cycling, hiking, winter sports and weight training. As such, I've had a few minor injuries over the decades requiring attention from orthopedic surgeons across the Pacific Northwest.
Sports Medicine Oregon / Oregon Outpatient Surgery is the very best, in my experience. From stem to stern, it's a top-shelf team. Everyone there including reception, scheduling, radiology, PA, and surgeon were professional, personable, courteous, and considerate with a good sense of humor. A good sense of humor is important when one is suffering from injuries requiring a surgical procedure. From my first appointment through surgery, each team member listened, and attended to my concerns and needs with a model of professional efficiency.
Dr. Greenleaf came highly recommended by scores of fellow gym rats at nearby Club Sport. When it comes to surgeons, I typically ask others with similar lifestyles for suggestions. Everyone pointed me towards Dr. Greenleaf, Shari and the team at Sports Medicine Oregon / Oregon Outpatient Surgery Center.
Great surgeons are a function of their perpetual training, academics, and years' experience. Nothing substitutes years' experience, and Dr. Greenleaf has decades of surgical history. It takes a team to succeed, though, so I'm glad I found the best team, anywhere.
My post-op recovery was superb. One day following surgery, I was moving about the house with minor discomfort. Four days post-op, I was back in the gym spinning on studio bikes, low-resistance weight training, and stretching. A week later (today), I'm back weight training, swimming, and cycling as if nothing occurred. And the pain and pressure I had in that medial compartment before surgery, are gone. I've had shaving cuts requiring more attention than this procedure did.
Kudos to everyone at Sports Medicine Oregon and Oregon Outpatient Surgery! Incidentally, the profile image is 5 days after surgery, with me pushing the weight sled on the astroturf.
- Partial Knee Replacement & Full Foot Surgery
“I have had multiple knee surgeries, including 2 partial knee replacements. I have had a couple foot surgeries as well as a hand surgery, my husband has had 2 shoulder surgeries; both from Dr. Greenleaf and Dr. Schroder. These physicians are amazing! For the first time since I started having surgeries as an 8 year old I am pain free in my knees. I had my foot stepped on and crushed by a very large man ... Dr. Schroder is in the process of fixing this! Sports Medicine Oregon has been the best choice for me! The Staff, is amazing, Meryl, Kayla and Sheri Cameron have been by my side through out the years. I love the staff! I really appreciate all the hard work they do!!”
- Knee Replacement Surgery
“Got my knee replacement Nov. 21st with Dr. Murphy. I have been a patient of Dr. Murphy's and his staff for about 3 years and I cannot say enough about how great they all are. My knee is healing perfectly. Dr. Murphy and Dr Armstrong listened to me and this is the first surgery I have woke up without a migraine and sick. My experience at Meridan Hospital was wonderful also. I am going to Dr. Murphy's office for PT and they are the best.
If you can call surgery a great experience - this one was. Thanks to you all for being so great! It makes healing so much better when you trust and like everyone involved in the process. Carolyn”
- Left Shoulder Evaluation by Dr. Kevin Murphy
“I met with Dr. Kevin Murphy re pain in my left shoulder, pain I have struggled with on and off over 20 years or so. I was very impressed with every aspect of my visit to the clinic and with Dr. Murphy. All the staff greeting me were helpful and informative. Dr. Murphy was very prepared for my visit and had reviewed all my file and images. He personally tested my range of mobility and pain issues, even though that had been earlier by his very capable PA. The result was that I had enough mobility and low enough pain that I could avoid surgery and be treated for now via injection therapy. I felt like I had the most thorough and accurate examination I could possibly have had and all those I met, including Dr. Murphy, were well informed, helpful and even friendly. David”
- Achilles Tendon Repair
“A skiing accident ruptured my Achilles tendon in early January. SMO was able to get me scheduled for surgery with Dr. Greenleaf four days following the accident. I have valued the promptness of my original appointment and consultation, the efficiency in getting the surgery appointment, the level of attentiveness and care through the surgery and the consistent attention given me on follow-up appointments. My progress now, at ten weeks, is more than satisfactory and the PT staff is following through with appropriate exercises and therapy so that I can regain range of motion and flexibility. SMO was recommended to me by a physician in Sunriver and I would confidently make a similar recommendation.”
- Total Ankle Replacement
“Dr. Stephen Schroeder performed a STAR total ankle replacement for me in 2014. Two surgeries, and I was walking within 3 months, and back to work within 4 months. After 8 months total including Physical Therapy, I have been fully functional and pain free, 20 years after the original trauma that culminated in end stage arthritis.
The other options for pain relief other than ankle replacement were fusion, or worse yet amputation.
Neither of which was a viable option.
Dr. Schroeder, his associates and the team at Sports Medicine Oregon are top shelf professionals, and I could not have expected a better outcome than what I received from their services.
My medical condition was a challenge I'm sure, but Dr Schroeder accepted the challenge and changed the quality of my life for the better.
Thank you Dr. Schroeder.
Thank you Sports Medicine Oregon.”
- New patient consult
“I ruptured my ACL 20 years ago, and, because I was working full time as a nurse, it was not feasible at the time to have it surgically repaired due to the long rehabilitation and not being able to work. I am now retired and reinjured my knee recently. Having heard that the surgery is now less complicated, and because I am not working, I decided to now pursue the possibility of surgical repair. Dr. Greenleaf came highly recommended. I just saw him today and he was VERY encouraging after reviewing my history and examining my knee, stating that he thinks I am a good candidate for the surgery, which he confirmed is now much less complicated. I am SO excited and pleased. All of the staff was great, as well. Sharon, the receptionist who checked me in, was particularly warm, compassionate, and helpful. Nikki, who scheduled my appointment and took all pertinent information, exemplified all the same traits as Sharon. So far, I am VERY impressed by your group. And, this comes from a retired RN who has high standards and expectations! Thanks to all. I will DEFINITELY be pursuing surgery, as well as recommending this clinic to family and friends!”
- Right knee surgery
“First off, I have to say, that I have had nothing but positive experiences when visiting Sports Medicine Oregon. My surgeon, Dr. Edelson, was top notch. He is always extremely thorough, kind and patient with me and he really did an amazing job with my old arthritic knees. The physical therapy department here is amazing and really helped me recover from my arthroscopic knee surgery. Having been to a few doctors for my knee problems, I can honestly say that Dr. Edelson and his staff are the best around. I live in California now and I will honestly say that if I ever have to have another surgery that requires an orthopedic surgeon to be involved, I will be flying to Oregon to see this group! Everyone here including the Doctors, P.A.s, M.A.s, PTs, OTs, Surgery Schedulers and the front desk staff are top notch in my book. Thank you Sports Medicine Oregon! You are one impressive group of professionals! I hope to never need your services again in the near future but if I do you will certainly be hearing from me! ”
- arthroscopic capsular shift ( shoudler )
“We first met Dr, Edelson July 28th. I knew right when we walked into his office in downtown Portland right on the Portland Timbers soccer field that he was someone who obviously knew athletes. Therefore, right away I knew he would be perfect for my 17 year old daughter's shoulder issue. We had met two other doctors before him. The information they had given us was confusing and not concise. With Dr. Edelson he was extremly clear. He said if she wants to continue to play her sport in college, she needs to fix this or it will continue to be a problem. He was able to get us into surgery within 6 days of that meeting. It went so good and not only was the surgery right on time, the appointments have been and everyone is so pleasant and helpful! The other thing that has been so great is that their phones get answered and calls get returned when necessary. They also all have emails so you can email with the medical assistants. I have worked with many doctors offices, as I have 2 teenage daughters that have had a combined 6 injuries in 14 months and let me tell you...Sports Medicine Oregon is the one getting it right! Thanks so very much. It makes a stressful situation so much easier when you can get quick answers to all of your important questions!!! I recommend this office and Dr. Edelson very much!”
- ACL Reconstruction Surgery
“I tore my ACL after a bad skiing accident and completely ruptured it. I got a second opinion with Dr.Greenleaf and I am glad I came to Oregon Sports Medicine for my surgery.
Besides skiing, I also play league tennis and wanted to make sure, post Surgery I could resume my tennis. And I was assured by Dr.Greenleaf, that I could get back to playing tennis at a high level and today, I am back to where I was or even a notch better.
Many Thanks to Dr.Greenleaf - I highly recommend him as a surgeon to all my friends!!”
- Knee Laser Surgery
“After 3 months in horrible pain and non- existent care from an another Ortho Clinic, I took a chance on Dr. Murphy after seeing their ad on the internet. Best thing I ever did. Their entire clinic treats you so professionally and with kindness. The nature of my injury was explained to me - something the other clinic wouldn't take the time to do and I felt like I was in great hands. I need a knee replacement which will be done by Dr. Murphy as I have total confidence in him and their staff.”
- partial knee replacement
“I had a partial knee replacement with Dr. Murphy on July 21, 2014.
My recovery was speedy and I must say I am impressed with Dr. Murphy and the robotic procedure he used. No arthritic pain....Thank You Dr. Murphy !!!”
- Knee replacement
“I had my knee replaced by Dr. Murphy 2 months ago, and I am very pleased I have no pain that Advil can't take care of. I can tend to my garden, and resume work... SO happy!! Before it was hard to walk through Walmart now it's no problem. I will not hesitate to seek his help again if I need it!!”
- Knee Surgery
“I have struggled with "bad knees" my whole life. I have had many Doctors visits to try and find out what was going on and after several inconclusive or non-matching diagnoses from FOUR different doctors over the course of 8 years, I finally had a friend suggest I go to Sports Medicine Oregon and see Dr. Greenleaf. Only moments into my first visit I could tell that the Dr. genuinely cared about my treatment and getting me back on my feet. He soon gave me his diagnosis of "patellar tracking disorder" and went into immense detail about why this was causing me pain and what I could do to fix it. I decided to go for surgery, and my pre-op appointment with Sheri Cameron was just as comforting if not, more. She did not make me feel rushed or annoying with all of my millions of questions and really eased my anxiety about my first ever surgery. 6 months later the first operation went so well I have decided to go through with the same surgery on my other knee. I cannot imagine trusting my knees with any other doctor ever again; Dr. Greenleaf and Sheri gave me my life back!”
- Foot surgery
“Dr. Schroeder quickly diagnosed an old injury where my leg bone meets the ankle bone (torn away cartilege). Good office visit preparation. Surgery went well. Good supervision of recovery. After five months, I am walking without pain. I am so pleased. His recovery prognostications have been accurate. His staff were friendly and helpful. Dr. Schroeder was pleasant, smart and easy-going. At each office visit he explained my progress and answered any and all my questions. ”
