"Most skilled, knowledgeable & concerned sports doctor!! Had to have a reverse TSA & he was highly recommended. I am 72 -female. I had rotator surgery by another doctor last year and was not successful. Needed improvement in quality of life ... Dr. Lane was the answer! Once PT completed, I expect to have an arm in motion!! I must thank his nurse, Cory, for great service prior to & after surgery.. she was readily available by phone !! Don’t give up.. !!"

He is currently working with me on my plantar fasciitis with possible bone spur and stress fracture. Feeling very confident he will fix me again . Hope he has me up and RUNNING ??again soon ."
