Warren Johnson – Apr 21, 2020

Patient

My visit from the beginning was excellent, despite my issues with my shoulder. From day one, I knew I was going to be in good hands. Dr. Butzen was very helpful in helping me understand what was going on in my shoulder. He's got an excellent staff that made me feel comfortable from the beginning. It's a great thing when a patient gets a post op video of what he did to repair my shoulder. It also gave me a better understanding once I was able to see pictures and hear the feedback. I would highly recommend Dr. Butzen as a Doctor, and Surgeon. I've had three surgeries at three different hospitals, and Animas Surgical was above and beyond the other two hospitals. As far as I'm concerned, ASH is a great hospital, and so is it's staff.

He did everything that could be done to my shoulder. He repaired a tear in my rotator cuff, repaired a tear in my labrum, repaired tendons, removed 2 bone spurs and relocated my bicep muscle. I had pain after surgery for only about 24 hours and could reach the top of my head on the 3rd day. At 5 months, I am almost completely recovered, about half the time it took my other shoulder with a doctor in a different city. He is a good guy and a great doctor!

Dr Butzen improved the quality of my life by diagnosing and treating my carpal tunnel syndrome. He is caring and professional and highly skilled.

Having seen several orthopedic surgeons over the years, I have enough experience to confidently reccomend Dr. Butzin. His explanation of my existing shoulder injury, the procedure he would eventually perform so well, my journey toward recovery, and shaping goals and expectations along the way were all spot on. Dr. Butzin took the time to thoroughly explain all of these aspects and made it a point to answer all of my questions along the way. Highest marks for Dr. Butzin
