Rotator cuff surgery
“ Dr. Sunday did my rotator cuff surgery 5 years ago. He's the best. I was so happy that he didn't make me start physical therapy the day after surgery like some people I know had to do. The pain the next day was unbearable, and I couldn't imagine doing anything with that arm. Now I think I'm facing another rotator cuff surgery on the other arm and I wouldn't even think of going somewhere else. I just have to make the call and set up an appointment. I would recommend him to everybody who is facing orthopedic surgery. ”

I was in denial about my hip pain.
“ I came to Coordinated Health after my daughter was referred for treatment of her hip pain. Dr. Sunday told me I needed a hip implant. Of course I was in denial at first. When I finally couldn't stand the pain I agreed to the surgery. My experience was a positive one. The surgery went very well. Everyone assured me I was in good hands. I went to rehab for 2 weeks and then home. That was over 2 years ago and I am pain free and don't even walk with a cane or walker. I would highly recommend Dr. Sunday. ”

My Shoulder is Better than New
“ Dr. Sunday took great care in repairing my torn bicep, right pectoral muscle, and muscles in my back as well. I had used a piece of gym equipment that had been set wrong and the pain was excruciating. Dr. Sunday took the time to review all of my x-rays and scans and explained to me what the surgery would entail. When I was in the operating room, this is when he realized the damage was more extensive than the scans had indicated. Regardless, Dr. Sunday took care of every little detail. In fact, he took extra time to sew up the incision on his own in order to afford me minimal scarring. Dr. Sunday is a gentleman, and a craftsman in the operating room. However, although he is a surgeon, he worked hard to make certain I did not have to endure surgery. I hold Dr. Sunday in very high regard for his professionalism, passion, and commitment to helping his patients lead better lives. ”
