Ratings for Dr. David Sheps
Dr David Sheps repaired my labrum and rotator cuff tear. As a Baseball pitcher wanting to return to the sport, was very pleased with the Pre and post operation care. Very fast rehab time, it was painfull and lots of work. Well worth it. Thank you
Dr. Sheps repaired my rotator cuff (supraspinatus) in July 2016. This was a private procedure and I feel very fortunate to have received care from Dr. Sheps. I am always a bit of a skeptic when it comes to doctors and surgeons just due to negative experiences in the past involving family members on various types of surgeries. I was worried going into this at first. Private surgery is a large out of pocket expenditure and you definitely want to ensure you are getting the best possible care. Dr. Sheps understands this and has a calm and professional confidence that was very reassuring, from the initial consult, all the way through to full recovery and especially pre and post op. He was there to answer any questions and concerns that I had and responded pretty much immediately to any queries (as he gave me mobile telephone number) day or night. I can't praise him enough for his care and attention. The pain caused by this surgery was surprising despite being warned before hand. At times throughout the recovery process, I would wonder "how could there still be this much pain" if my body was recovering properly. However, Dr. Sheps was pretty much exact in describing my current phase in the recovery process and when the pain would subside, again providing reassurance and lending confidence that everything was on the right track. In terms of the actual surgical procedure, the nursing and support staff were absolutely fantastic with wonderful facilities. Thank you for making the best of an unfortunate injury.
Had shoulder surgery with Dr Sheps 2 months ago. My right shoulder was torn all the way around making for 8 different tear repairs and shaving of the collarbone. He cares for his patience is very to the point and has more knowledge than any other doctor/surgeon that I have seen when it comes to shoulders. He is heavily known through the doctors in my town (3hrs North of EDMONTON) and they all speak very highly of him. If you are suffering from shoulder pain. I highly recommend getting referred to the glen sather to see Dr Sheps
Dr. Sheps surgically repaired my fractured Olecranon (elbow) after a road bicycle accident in early September 2016, by installing a plate and screws to stabilize the fracture and promote healing. I have not even been back for my 6 week check up yet, but already I have approxinately 90% range of motion back in the elbow, and I am very impressed by how non-obtrusive the scar on my arm is.... I would highly recommend Dr. Sheps......
I had both shoulders (rotator cuff) repaired in 2015 and Dr Sheps has raised my confidence in the medical field to a new level. Found him to be extremely professional, caring and knowledgeable and his guidance through the recovery process has been instrumental in my recovery. I have had 6 previous surgeries with other surgeons but none as good as with Dr Sheps. I would be remiss if I did not mention that every appointment the waiting time has been minimal so not left in the waiting room for an inordinate period of time.. makes me feel like my time is also important. Thank you Dr Sheps.
I had been fighting through our public medical system for over 6 years trying unsuccessfully to get an accurate diagnosis for severe pain in my right shoulder when I decided to take matters into my own hands. I began researching private options and was ecstatic to discover that one of Edmonton's most specialized, accredited orthopaedic surgeons, Dr David Sheps, had a Vancouver based private practice at False Creek Surgical Centre in addition to his practices in Edmonton. I had my consult booked within a week, MRI conducted the day after that and then the following day Dr Sheps provided me with an accurate diagnosis. I had a high grade partial thickness rotator cuff tear that Dr Sheps repaired 2 weeks ago in Vancouver. I was very impressed with his direct, no nonsense approach, the high degree of his expertise and his sincere aftercare. Shoulders are among the most complex joints and require a thorough understanding in order to be successfully treated, selecting the right surgeon is crucial. My experience has been nothing but positive and I highly recommend Dr Sheps.
Dr. Sheps operated on me after a terrible fall in the bath tub. Not only was my shoulder broken but the rotator cuff needed repair and the muscles moved back where they belonged. Being a female senior citizen made some aspects of the surgery difficult due to bone deterioration and Dr. Sheps handled it with his expertise. His bedside manner is exceptional .... He is a straight shooter when it comes to explaining what he did as well what the future will hold. I am so lucky to have been put into his care.
