"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.. !!"

"I went to Dr. Lane for a second opinion after 3 months of being told my knee will heal with time. The pain kept getting worse not better. Dr. Lane diagnosed my problem with the appropriate tests and I ended up needing a surgery . Now, I am back doing the activities I love and feeling great doing them!"

"I have been suffering with pain on my left side with spasms running from my hip down. I finally decided to give Dr. Lane's office a call cause he treated me before and it had been years since I had this pain. So I call and was referred to his nurse who scheduled me an appointment. I was there in 2 days and was well taken care of. I was treated and schedule for a follow-up to make sure I didn't need additional help. Thanks for doctors like him."
