“I have been a patient at Shady Grove Orthopedics for thirty years and would go to no other practice! During that time frame I have had numerous surgeries with Dr. Tuck, Dr. Hampton, Dr. Quigley, and Dr. Witte. The surgeon’s are all terrific and very informative. My quality of life has improved drastically due to the fantastic surgeon’s on the staff. I had an emergency on a weekend and was called within five minutes.

At Shady Grove Orthopedics you are not just a number. The staff and nurses are very helpful at all times. The physical therapists at Shady Grove Orthopedics are very well trained. The therapists give you printed home exercises to do and are willing to answer any questions you might have.”
