Met all expectations...even exceeded them.

Thank you Dr. Stephen Pearce for healing my broken and fractured shoulder so beautifully. You remember how afraid of a scar that I was...but today I am here wearing a shirt with no sleeves. From the initial visit, to the surgery, to the follow up you are a true pro. Kind. Considerate. Proficient. My shoulder works! Thanks also to your assistant Juan and my physical therapist, Debbie.

almost pain free reconstruction

July 27, 2017 had my left shoulder rebuilt. Damage was sever enough that cadaver tissue had to be used to repair what remained of my damaged shoulder.
I was only on Tylenol pain reliever, two days post surgery. Rehabilitation went well and within the recovery time table, about four months, I was able to resume my regular physical activities with full range of motion.
I am a rancher and need physical strength and ability. By this time I was able to unload 3 tons of cattle feed by myself.

A great doctor

Dr. Pearce replaced both of my knees and I haven't had any pain since they were done. I have been coming to Dr. Pearce for a great number of years. I have always been extremely satisfied with his bedside manner. I can always feel comfortable with communicating with whatever orthopedic problems I have had in the years. I am 87 years old and happy to have someone like Dr. Stephen Pearce that can take care of my orthopedic problems.

Matching set of partial knee replacements

I have had 8 knee surgeries (4 each), 1 shoulder and 1 back surgery after playing competitive baseball for 14 years not thinking about the consequences. I was blessed to have Dr. Charles Rockwood refer me to Dr. Stephen Pearce. I am honored to be able to share my excellent experience of being able at 55 being able to play golf, ride my bike and walk normal. I could not erase the abuse of years of catching but thanks to Dr. Pearce I able to say I am overjoyed to be a 100% mobile. Thank You!

Overall experience with my shoulder surgery has been exceptional given the precision and accuracy of

Dr. Pearce has been a trusted adviser since the first day I saw him concerning the rotator cuff soft tissue tear I experienced in 2012. I opted for surgery to rectify this condition that was gradually worsening. The surgery outcome was favorable in many ways. Less use of opioid based medication, timely checkups and sage advice have kept me moving on a safe recovery back to health. I feel better every day and the shoulder continues to show improvement each day, thanks to Dr. Pearce.

Remarkable surgeon and doctor! Highest recommendation.

Dr. Stephen Pearce has been absolutely phenomenal is reconstructing my shattered arm, providing ongoing care including arranging top caliber OT and PT, restoring use of my arm and continuation of life's activities. Few surgeons perform the complete elbow replacement that he gave me in 2017 after a catastrophic fall at school. I have no arm pain and am looking forward to holding my first grandchild.

Thank you, Dr. John Pearce for my amazing hip replacement and Dr. Stephen for my new elbow!

I can ski again!

Dr. Pearce has been a great partner through my ACL repair. He's been a fantastic listener and answered all my questions through the process. My goal has been to get back on skis and his team has helped me achieve that goal.

I have to add that he was amazing on surgery day. You could tell he was in his element and gave me 100% confidence on a stressful day as a patient.

Excellent care from beginning to end

Dr. Pearce's skilled care and surgery allowed me to be pain free and have great range of motion within 2 months of surgery. He is patient with my inquires and I felt he spent time listening to my concerns.
