  • Patient Review

    Dr. Seldes I am so grateful to you for giving me my life back. I was in so much pain from my knee, I was in agony. Because of you I can now look forward to living my life again without the pain I had that was threatening to overcome me. I feel like I have had a miracle happen for me. I am once again so happy

  • Patient Review

    I had a very bad rotator cuff tear that several other top surgeons said was beyond repair. I found Dr. Seldes through an Internet search and he said he could help me. I went from being crippled with pain to being totally pain-free. I felt like a new person.
