Dr. Stetson Testimonials
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Stetson for many years and I’ve always had a
wonderful experience. As an older, yet high level racquetball player, my
knee pains were becoming a concern for me and I was looking for a way to
keep going without resorting to surgery. Not only has Dr. Stetson been
knowledgeable and patient, but he made sure that we chose an option that was
best for my specific needs. He laid out my options and discussed the not
only the benefits, but also the possible negative effects of the various
treatments. With his help, I am proud to say that I am still and once again,
a gold medal champion in my age bracket. Thank you Dr. Stetson for all your
PS. I took gold
Dr. Stetson, Just wanted to say thank you for all that you’ve done to get me back on the court doing what I love to do. What a blessing it has been working with yoiu and your staff the past couple of years. I’ll never forget hearing that you prayed for my knee prior to what we thought was potentially a reconstruction. I think about that often and grateful to have been surrounded by believers during my surgeries. All the best to you and your family. I hope to only see you in passing as I plan to stay healthy!
I have been very active in sports all my life: gymnastics, rock climbing and now endurance horse racing. This entails racing horses cross-country for 50, 75 and 100 miles. My horse and I have been to the Pan American Championships and have been ranked in the top 4 in our weight division on the West Coast for 6 years. We can’t afford to be slowed down much by a broken leg… In mid-February, I broke my leg and Dr Stetson had to install a plate and 6 screws to hold me together. Because of his excellent work, I have retained my flexibility and the strength is quickly returning. I am racing again, having completed a 50-mile race in mid-May, after short 3-month layoff. This picture was taken at an endurance race called the Tevis Cup in the Lake Tahoe area.
I had been suffering from very painful “tennis elbow” for several months. It happened at a very inopportune time as I was scheduled to participate in the translocation of endangered peninsular pronghorn antelope in the Vizcaino Desert in Baja, California. Several weeks prior to the departure date I seriously did not think I would be able to go. I could not pick up a cup of coffee without pain let alone a pronghorn! I had seen Dr. Stetson some time ago for a shoulder injury sustained at work and was impressed (and healed) with his skill. I thought it was worth a chance and scheduled an appointment. After one visit and cortisone treatment I had absolutely no pain. I had one of the best experiences of my life and we successfully translocated 28 pronghorn to a new habitat where hopefully they will reproduce and thrive. Two months later I continue to be pain free.
