My experience with Dr. Downing had been very comforting. I had one procedure done before in my life prior to the one recent. Dr. Downing alleviated a lot of stress and anxiety that came prior to the procedure and leading up to.

I'm a very active 72 year old male who ruptured a right bicep distal tendon. During my initial visit to my orthopedic doctor I was told that a "repair" could not be done by him but he knew a doctor that might be able to do a "reconstruction" of my bicep tendon. I was not very optimistic as what I had read, the chances were not promising that an operation would be successful. Low and behold I went to see Dr. Downing who said he could fix the tendon. I was so relieved. He did the surgery and two month later my arm is much, much better. Dr. Downing indicates that I should have full use in a few month. I am so grateful that I was referred to him. He is my miracle worker. Thank you Dr. D.

Dr Downing is a genius! I severely injured three of my fingers with a circular saw almost severing the pinky finger completely. Dr Downing was able to save the pinky, add a skin graft to another and restore function and nerves in all three, One year later I am almost back to normal! Highly recommend Dr Downing if needed, but hope you don't do what I did :-)
