Sally Gagnier

  • Wrist and arm

“I broke my arm, fractured my wrist, dislocated my elbow and stretched the nerves into my fingers. I was a mess. Dr. Hamilton and his staff were truly miracle workers. They not only patched me up with my operation, but they held my hand thru the very trying 5 months since it happened. They have worked closley with me, encouraged me when I was so down, showed me what I needed to do and gave me the tools to get better. I finally feel like I will get the use of my hand and arm again. I would highly recommend Dr. Hamilton and his staff to anyone that needs hand, wrist and arm work.”

  • MAKO knee replacement

“I had a MAKO knee replacement performed by Dr. Murphy in November. Having suffered a horrible basketball injury at 17, and then going on to compete as a D-I tennis player, I had lots of wear and tear on my joint. At the age of 34, staring down 6 prior knee surgeries on my right knee, combined with horrible osteo-arthritis and constant pain, it became apparent that a knee replacement was my only real route back to a normal life. Dr. Edelson saved my knee as long as medically possible, and then looking at my situation with both him and Dr. Murphy, it became clear that MAKO was my best option. At 3 months post-op, I am thrilled with the result, and know I will be able to live a life of sport and exercise again, but most important, just be pain free. Also, the in-house physical therapy team at Sports Medicine Oregon has been invaluable to my recovery as well - it's inevitable to feel down physically but also mentally post-surgery, but their team is right there to pick you up and push you forward from the get-go. I truly thank Dr. Edelson, Dr. Murphy and Jason Vila for helping me feel normal again, and to look ahead in my life.”

  • ACL Surgery

“I tore my ACL playing soccer, and from the time from pre-surgery to surgery to post surgery, I have had fantastic care and communication from Dr. Edelson. Along with Dr. Edelson, and the support staff of Valerie and Erynn, I have been treated with a great sense of professionalism, and personal care, that I look forward to every appointment. The fact, that Dr. Edelson and his staff deal with a high level professional athlete, and numerous patients, then in turn treat me with that same professionalism and individual care is very comforting. They are many choices out there, for Sports Medicine, for me choosing Oregon Sports Med and Dr. Edelson, Valerie and Erynn was one of the best choices I made--I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for treating me like that professional athlete!”

“My shoulder has been nearly pain free, after just ~3wks. Of course there is PT to be done, but recovery has been going better than I could have dreamed. Thanks much to Dr Greenleaf(already played some guitar, carefully), Sheri, Dr Bolka(no adverse affects from anesthesia) and Jason for everything going so well.”

  • Left Total Knee Replacement

“I am writing to express my great satisfaction with the treatment I received and the care given to me after the surgery.

I didn't expect the kind of follow-up, support and attention to my questions and needs that you and your staff provided.

I especially want to thank you for the efforts of the PA and MA. They were extremely helpful in dealing with all of my post-surgical issues. Their efforts went way beyond any of my previous experiences with the medical profession.

Again, Thank you!”
