“Dr. Murphy is wonderful!! Over the past three years I've had two surgeries due to a torn labrum in each hip. I went from having pain with every step that I took to zero pain thanks to Dr. Murphy. I wouldn't go to anyone else and trust him enough to refer friends and family to him.” Janet M.
“Dr. Murphy is one of the best surgeons in the country. He repaired my shoulder, which exploded in a skiing accident in Switzerland. This was a complicated surgery as my shoulder was a mess. Four months later I was lifting weights with almost full mobility. Three years later and it's held up incredibly. Thanks for working miracles Dr. M!” Clint J.
