“I had a very bad emergency surgery performed on my broken left wrist in Las Vegas in July of 2015, and when I got home to Fort Worth, Dr. Ted Peters discovered through X-rays that the previous surgeon had not set the bone. Ten days after the first surgery, Dr. Peter's was performing a repair surgery, a CORRECT wrist surgery, that saved my arm. I will always be so very grateful for the kind, compassionate and incredibly qualified surgeon God sent me to in my great time of need. I love and appreciate him so very dearly, as well as all the other office and nursing professionals, combined with my very talented and devoted PT's. Thank you all, so very much, from the bottom of my heart! God Bless y'all!!”

“I had gone to a doctor downtown in Fort Worth and was very hesitant to get the surgery done especially with him. Someone recommended Dr. Williams to me and within 5 minutes of the first visit with him I knew he was the right doctor. I think I surprised him at how ready and willing I was to get the operation done without any convincing but he just made me feel instantly at ease about the whole process. I could not be happier about my new knees. Life is so much better without the pain and agony I was going through on each step. I can now walk up and down stairs with ease and even play golf getting in and out of sand traps. ( I know you shouldn't hit it there!) I can even play tennis and recently finished 5th out of 16 in my league. All of my tennis buddies remark at how much difference it has made. If you are hesitant then go see Dr. Williams he is the best!”

“Dr. Williams did total left hip replacement at Baylor Grapevine. He takes the time to explain the procedure. The surgery went very well. Dr. Williams stops by the hospital room post surgery to check on you. I have had minimal pain since the surgery. Was up and walking around the hospital room the day of surgery and was released two days after surgery. Great experience.”

“Many years of procedures with Dr. Tucker always puts me at ease and always has time to talk to me about my family and takes time to get to know me. I can talk to Dr. Tucker and anything and is never judging me, very considerate and understanding.”

“Dr. Donegan performed knee replacement surgeries for me last year. I consider the complete experience to be one of the best things I've ever done for myself. My wife and daughter have also used NTO with great success. I would highly recommend the entire practice to anyone in need of any of their services. Thank you.”
– Mike B.
“Dr. Tucker has always been wonderful and caring....he listens and is dedicated to helping his patients feel better. Dr. Tucker's assistant Jessica always calls back promptly and handles requests in a quick, efficient and caring manner.”

“I underwent total knee replacement the first week in November 2015. Everything from pre-surgery paperwork to post-surgical final exam was flawless.  I am still waiting for the post surgery pain that everyone said I would experience!!  Dr. Williams and his team were phenomenal. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and experienced a "flare" during week 2 post surgery. I gutted that out without meds because I did not want to impact the perfect job that the team had done. Holli, Dr. Williams, and Tony responded immediately to my questions and concerns about the RA and associated issues, giving me strength and support to get me through that tough week and ensuring the most positive outcome. Dr. Williams is absolutely state of the art, a perfectionist, and extremely "soft tissue" conscious. I had 2 co-workers undergo the same procedure from other surgeons, some professed to be "Best in Dallas", neither had the outstanding outcome that my team ensured that I had. Thanks Dr. Williams!!”

“Dr. Williams is my miracle worker. At age 85, I am in need of 2 hip replacements. I heard so many bad stories about them especially for people my age. I was so nervous to have the surgery. Dr. Williams thoroughly explained the procedure, what to expect during recovery and how long it would take to get back to normal. His comforting words and expertise put my mind at ease. The 1st surgery was a great success. It has been almost 4 months and I am back to doing my daily activities pain-free. My other hip will be done this spring. No one can say they look forward to having surgery, but knowing that I’m in the best hands with Dr. Williams makes it much more comforting. I give him the highest rating possible on everything!”

“My hip replacement experience with Dr. Williams and his team has been first rate. The surgery at Forest Park went exceptionally well and the home health and physical rehabilitation afterward were extremely helpful and constructive. I appreciate that Dr. Williams took time with me to discuss my surgical options and gave me latitude in making the final decision. I understand that I still have a way to go to becoming totally pain free, but I am achieving my range of motion goals (I can now tie my shoe!  :o)) and have a good rehab plan that I can work from home, thanks to Krystle and her physical therapy team. I am very glad that I chose Dr. Williams and North Texas Orthopedics to go down this road with. To undergo the surgery  was a huge decision for me and for my family. I wish I had not waited 4 years to get it done!”

“I had an accident this past summer which caused me to break my right ankle and had to have surgery and get plates and screws in my right ankle (both sides). I was very pleased by Dr. Briseño and his staff with the care I received through the whole process and how little of a scar I have after just a few months. I highly recommend Dr. Briseño as a very reliable and professional orthopedic surgeon.”

“My name is Bea and my husband, John, had surgery for a muscle tear he had on his rotator cuff when he fell off a ladder. After Dr. Moffett did surgery to repair his torn muscle and after therapy John's arm was healed and to his amazement his golf game improved tremendously. But that's not the end of the story! A few years later John had a skiing accident and tore a muscle on the opposite rotator cuff and he needed another surgery. So, once again he went to Dr. Moffett for another rotator cuff repair. About the same time I was experiencing pain on my left shoulder that I rated a ten on a level of extremely painful (probably my imagination, but it hurt!). So of course, we went to Dr. Moffett for another shoulder rescue mission. My surgery was done on July 8, 2015, three months after John's shoulder surgery. I'm sure people thought we were wrestling over at our home! I proceeded to therapy and yes it's a painful process, but keep reminding yourself that this pain will end but if not treated the pain would have gotten worse. Three and a half months after my surgery I was released by Mike at Dr. Moffett's office to begin my regular exercising program and I was finished with my therapy. Currently I feel great. My shoulder is better than ever and so are both of John's shoulders. We are so grateful to Dr. Jeff Moffett and his staff at North Texas Orthopedics for restoring our shoulders so we can continue our healthy active lifestyle. We both highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Moffett for any orthopedic needs.”

“I have been dealing with lower back problems for years and years, so many that I have forgotten to be honest with you. I hurt so bad that I could barely walk, had to quit working in 2011. I went to so many doctors here in the Dallas and Fort Worth area, and all of them more than less labeled me as a drug seeker or even a lab rat. Sorry but that is the way I feel. I was about to just give up on everything, I couldn't go to Church, walk my dogs, or even mow my lawn. I just felt so useless. So I talked to my regular primary Dr. and he set me up with Dr. Tucker at NTO, and that is the best thing that has ever happened to me. In less than 5 visits, Dr. Tucker has done more for me than all the other Doctor's did in the past 6 years. He took the time to listen to me, and he took all the necessary steps to get me back to where I need to be. I thank God every day for this clinic and especially Dr. Tucker, Jessica, and all the wonderful staff at North Texas Orthopedics for giving me my life back. Thanks.”

“Dr. Williams performed full knee replacement on left knee. I am now day 5 post op and because of his dedication to utilization of the latest technology, his networking with the healthcare professionals that share his vision and association with the best hospital in the Southlake/Grapevine area my post op pain, my level of care, and the attention to all details have surpassed what I would consider ideal. When the patient is not worried about or experiencing post operative issue he can focus on what is important.....healing. I cheated during this process. I interviewed all of my caregivers including folks delivering my meals in hospital. All agree that Dr. Williams would be their choice. More to come”

“I had surgery on my right shoulder a year ago on November 13th, 2014, for a torn rotator cuff. During the operation they found several things in need of repair, and those were corrected. I had damaged the shoulder over and over through the years, healed it up slightly each time and then, through wear-and-tear, I finally hurt it badly in May of 2014 and went to see Dr. Kerry Donegan in July when it continued to hurt with no improvement. Initially, I was hesitant to have the surgery but Dr. Donegan overcame my objections with sound reasons and I'm glad he did. In the surgery, they made a small repair to the Subscapularis section of the rotator cuff and made major repairs to the Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus sections. They also made a repair to the labrum, trimmed a bone spur, and debridled a section of the biceps tendon.   After the surgery, I was in quite a bit of pain for the first week, but it subsided after that, and each week was better than the last.  I slowly and methodically rehabbed it through their center and at home. I was very dedicated with my rehab and careful not to do too much too soon. In April of 2015, I began lifting weights again and exercising the shoulder very lightly at first. I have been very careful with my recovery, but I have also been very consistent and I still do rehab exercises today before I exercise. The good news is that they absolutely repaired everything that was wrong and I have 100% of my strength and mobility with no pain. I can do numerous sets of push-ups and pull-ups with no pain. I can even throw a ball again. Hats off to Dr. Donegan and his assistant Ryann Samsel for the excellent repair they performed on me. I had lived with and worked around the pain for many years; fortunately, I no longer have to suffer with it and I have my shoulder back.”

“Dr. Fleager was very cordial, polite, friendly and welcoming. When we got down to business she was honest, intelligent, professional, helpful and discreet. She did well handling the pain of a small child and yet was all business. I would recommend her and we will be back for our follow up. I just hope all of the healing goes so well!”
