Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

I came to Dr. Dantuluri after almost two full years of frequent surgeries surrounding an extremely bad injury to my shoulder. I was in constant pain, and had almost no mobility. Dr. Dantuluri was extremely patient, and discussed all of my potential options in-depth before suggesting a best course of action. He made sure I was comfortable in the decision, and spoke about what my expectations should be in the future.Almost a year out from a total shoulder reconstruction, I have felt better than I have in years, and the care from Dr. Dantuluri has been exquisite. Everyone should be so lucky to have him as their caregiver.

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

Dr. Dantuluri is an extremely nice person who pinned my broken humeral head with a titanium pin which is a minimalist approach which preserves the blood supply to the humerus . It was all very efficiently taken care of. I have good range of motion 6 months later. His office staff are pleasant and helpful. I feel extremely lucky to have found Dr. Dantuluri who is so skilled in this procedure. Thank you!
