“"I visited with Dr. Kraft's assistant regarding a swelling in my right knee. I injured it by training for races in the Pro race series. The doctor explained that it was probably due to a strain. The doctor recommended I stay off the running for a week. I did not immediately follow this advice. However, after a week of running in pain, I stayed off for ten days. I felt the knee recover after that. I am back to running. I appreciated the quick and accurate diagnosis, since I previously had surgery on the same knee."”

“"I developed carpal tunnel syndrome two years ago. After physical therapy treatment things improved but still problems. After visiting Dr. Majors, my carpal tunnel continues to improve; yet there is just enough discomfort that I haven't stopped my treatment program. I have been approved for surgery, yet it looks as though I may be able to avoid surgery, after consultations and treatments at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics."”

“"For the past four years of my life, my desire to be as physically active as possible has been hampered by two nagging hip injuries. The first was before my senior year in high school and I couldn't lift weights or play football because of the pain. Dr. Thaxter went ahead and fixed me up and I was back to normal again. About a year later though, my other hip started bothering me so with no hesitation I went back to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics and Dr. Thaxter was able to do the same procedure. Two months later and I'm still pain free! I also couldn't have made the recovery without the trainers who pushed me through physical therapy."”

“I am a 68-year-old retired first grade teacher who has experienced years of low back pain.  My story began with yearly injections, which provided relief for a while; however, the injections began to be more frequent with less and less success. Dr. Aryan explained the procedure of decompression and fusion of L4, L5, and S1 vertebra in a thorough way that my husband and I could see and understand. The office staff and support staff that followed through after surgery and in the hospital stay were very helpful and informative.  Follow-ups in the office afterwards were positive and encouraging. It's been three months since surgery, and I've been wondering why I didn't have the surgery sooner.  Walking and flexibility have returned without any damage to my affected leg. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aryan and his entire staff who work together as a team to provide all the necessary information in order for a patient to make a decision regarding the health of their spine.”

“I came to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics in 2009 after various treatments to my back. I have been very active in outdoor activities such as dirt biking, snow boarding, football, and other various activities including my workplace where I damaged my spine. I have had multiple treatments at the facility. My first was an L5/S1 fusion with Dr. Aryan. At the time of this treatment I could barely walk due to the pain level. After the fusion the pain was gone and I regained most of my function. The next treatment with Dr. Aryan was a fusion of my C5-C7 vertebra. I had localized sever neck pain and pain radiating into my right arm. After the procedure the symptoms were gone. After each treatment I received physical therapy at the SPOC physical therapy center. The physical therapy activities helped me to regain my strength in the treated areas of my body. I have resumed my outdoor activities including bicycling 50 miles per week and riding my motorcycles. I would not have been able to have this level of quality in my life had it not been for the treatments I received from Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. I have recommend Sierra Pacific Orthopedics to some friends and will continue to do so.”

“I very much appreciate Dr. Gill's office making the quick appointment to fit me in. I also appreciate the caution exercised by Dr. Gill to order the ultra-sound of my venal vein and his follow-up the evening after. I have tremendous respect for Dr. Gill's skill, but even more his "judgment" in assessing the potential issues I might have had.”

“My hips were worn out from long distance running, truck driving, and general hard use working on a ranch. I could barely walk with the use of a cane for two years before I decided to have the hip replacements. Recovery was pretty fast; I was back to work without pain in five weeks. I drive about five hours 2-3 days per week. I had great physical therapy at Dueker Fee. I had the second hip replaced within 10 months. I did the physical therapy on my own using the lessons from the first replacement.  I have completed the 2011 and 2012 Fresno Classic Bicycle Ride (35 miles). I also completed the 2011 Grizzley Loop the Lake Bicycle Ride (25 miles with 5000 ft climb) and plan on completing the 2012 ride. I am totally happy with my replacements and highly recommend Dr. Gill to everyone I hear is having trouble with their hips or knees. My cousin, Jim Cowan, saw how good I was getting around and had his hip replaced by Dr. Gill. Everyone at the office is very friendly and courteous.”

“I was anxious about the pending hip surgery which I had on June 27th. My recovery has been without serious incident or challenge. Each time my wife or I have called with a question or concern the staff of Dr. Gil has been fabulous. The professional care and medical expertise we have received from Dr. Gill and his staff has been great. I wish now I would have pursued the hip surgery sooner than I did. The medical treatment by Dr. Gill and his staff have erased my anxieties. I look forward to a speedy and uncomplicated recovery. P.S. I want to say that the St. Agnes nursing and medical staff was also great. What a great team! Thank you.”
