  • “Well, Dr McDowell is awesome. I can say this I’ve had six major spine surgeries, and I would do all those at the same time again before I would go through another shoulder surgery and bicep surgery. I’m not the type of person who needs PT, because I tend to overtrain. In the 8th week, PT set me back, and I haven’t been back. With Dr. McDowell ok’ing that, I either had or purchased everything I needed to rehab myself. However, I’m at 4.25 months and feel like my shoulder is bone on bone only when I lift my arms up from my side. I’m way ahead with all other movements. Dr McDowell was aware of that and instructed me to hold off on the exercises that bothered and inflamed my shoulder. Unlike most surgeons, Dr. McDowell has a great personality and he is very down to earth. He will work you in if you are having issues or concerns. He is very smart and has done 100s of these rotator cuff/bicep surgeries every year since he came to this practice. My advice would be to request Dr. McDowell to review and/or operate on your shoulder no matter how bad off your shoulder. However, you better be ready for a hard recovery. He will guide you, but it’s up to you to push through the discomfort. By all means, you better be patient. If you are not a patient person, you better learn before shoulder and bicep surgery.”

  • “Dr. McDowell is absolutely THE BEST all-round, in every way! He is a fantastic Orthopedic Surgeon (he replaced my right shoulder and repaired my rotator cuff in late July.) I have rehabbed very well and am left with a very small scar... and some stiffness, which needs more work from me, I think. He is a favorite physician of my husband and mine because he takes the time to talk! I highly recommend him for your next needed Ortho surgery.”

  • “I've been seeing Dr. McDowell since he first started at University Orthopedic Surgeons and I can't say enough good things about him and his staff. Through knee surgery, and the latest shoulder replacement surgery, everything is top notch! He's become more than a doctor, I feel like he's my friend. Because of that I've recommended him on countless occasions to my friends. The best of the best in every way.”
