Patient Testimonials

I can do more than I ever expected

Paragon Orthopedic Center’s Dr. Bents did a great job on my shoulder. I can do more then I ever expected to do with my new parts. I put off having it done due to being afraid. I am so glad I had it done and out of pain. I still have more to do but believe me I will be able to do everything . Dr. Bents is the best.

Well Worth the 70-Mile Drive

I have been a patient of Paragon Orthopedic Center since 2007. I have seen both Drs. Van Horne and Bents. Before my hip replacements I could only walk with a walker and was in extreme pain. The same with my knees. I had shoulder replacements because of my pain and loss of mobility. It is wonderful to be able to walk without a walker or a cane again, and have full use of my arms. Everyone at this facility is very caring and helpful. I would recommend joint replacement to anyone who wished to be pain free again. It was well worth driving 70 miles to see these doctors.

I am a believer in PRP now

I am 65 years old and have played baseball and softball my whole life. I became a patient of Dr. Bents after I injured my shoulder carrying something really heavy. Physical therapy didn’t seem to help the pain, so I received the PRP shot. Amazing. I was skeptical at first, but now I am sold. The pain has subsided and I feel much stronger in my right shoulder. Thank you Dr. Bents. I am a believer.

I can bowl again, thanks to Dr. Bents

While walking backward to avoid a dog, I fell and broke my wrist. I was really lucky Dr. Bents was available to see my x-rays. He did the surgery, putting in a metal plate and screws. After a lot of hard work in physical therapy, I have very little pain in my wrist and it has only been 8 weeks. Just yesterday, I bowled 3 games and did well without any wrist pain. He did a great job!

Dr. Bents did a fantastic repair

I had a choice of orthopedic surgeons and Dr. Bents came recommended by a friend. I am at the 3 month mark from rotator cuff repair and my range of motion is almost perfect. Dr. Bents did a fantastic repair and I’m very happy with the results.

I can’t wait to have the other hip done

I was amazed at the whole process. Smooth and well-organized. Dr. Van Horne is a cool dude. For the pain that increased over the previous four years, I am kicking myself that I didn’t have this done earlier. I can’t wait to have my other hip done.

I would recommend Dr. Van Horne to everyone!

Dr. Van Horne replaced both my hips. After the first one, using the posterior procedure, I was hiking the Grand Canyon within three months. After my second surgery, using the anterior procedure, I was walking around the fair within a month and a half. I was happy to be able to go up my stairs, without using the rails, just one and a half weeks after the surgery was done. The procedure was amazing. I didn’t need much pain medication either. I love Dr. Van Horne. He is honest and caring. I would recommend him to everyone and I don’t know why anyone would go anywhere else!

My Leg Is Great!

Dr. Van Horne did my hip replacement and the staff at Paragon Orthopedics has been great from the beginning to end. I was out of pain by the time I finished rehabilitation. I came in and saw Greg after the surgery and he was great and they said everything looks great. I’d recommend Dr. Van Horne anytime and the whole staff has been very nice

I Felt Very Taken Care Of

It felt like every step was coordinated and everybody was so knowledgeable through the steps of my surgery with Dr. Van Horne. There were many opportunities to ask questions along the way through both the written information and the staff, so all my questions were answered. The staff was thorough and I liked that there were no surprises, except that everything went so incredibly well.

Just as Great For the Second Knee

Dr. Van Horne did a fantastic job. This was my second knee replacement, so I had concerns about how it would go. It all went really good and I am very happy. The staff at Paragon are very, very professional, They really looked after me and my care. It all went really, really well

PRP is truly miraculous

After being told by 2 orthopedic surgeons that I needed shoulder surgery, I went for an evaluation by Dr. Appleby. He strongly encouraged me to consult with Dr. Bents to learn more about PRP. After doing my own research, I decided to go through with the procedure. After 2 months, I am able to use my arm in ways I haven’t in a couple of years. It is truly miraculous to see how quickly I’m recovering and regaining the use of my arm. I’m extremely grateful!
