Ratings for Dr. Edward G. McFarland
Edward McFarland replaced both of my shoulder joints back in 1993-1994. My life was changed by the improvement. No pain and a full return to functionality. I seldom think about having artificial joints - except when I set off the metal detector at the airport (LOL). The procedures were virtually painless with no complications and my recovery was rapid.
Superb physician and surgeon. Replaced both of my shoulders and am now virtually pain free. Great aftercare and very efficient and friendly staff. My son is now on his schedule for surgery this winter. Implicitly trust Dr. McFarland and his staff.
I had an arthroscopic and also a hemiarthroplasty replacement on my right shoulder. The doctor who the the hemiarthroplasty replacement had failed to protect the bone and as the result I had lost bone and looseness of prosthesis in my shoulder. No other doctor in VA would touch my shoulder. Dr. McFarland was the only one who could perform reverse surgery. Before the surgery, I had almost no motion ability in my arm. I am like a new person after the surgery. He is so good that I went back to him for my other shoulder. I would only trust him to operate on me. If you want a doctor with exceptional skills, wonderful bed side manner, honest and caring, look no further. He is the best doctor I have been fortunate enough to meet and I can tell you I have see 100s of doctors and surgeons through out my life, and none is better than Dr. McFarland.
My experience in having a reverse shoulder replacement was excellent . This includes not only Dr. McFarland but his staff, the hospital stay and the range in motion and quality of life improvement . Can't say enough. Thanks to improving my health so I can continue enjoying my life on the move.
Dr. McFarland did a reverse left shoulder replacement for me in 2009 and a right shoulder replacement in 2015. He also did a right shoulder replacement for my wife in 2015. We both experienced absolutely no pain following the operation and our range of motion returned very quickly. Dr. McFarland is the most patient-friendly doctor that we have ever had and in our opinion, the most outstanding and very best in his field. We have recommended several of our friends to him and he has done shoulder replacements on them as well. My wife and I highly recommend Dr. McFarland to anyone who is considering shoulder surgery. Dr. McFarland brings credit not only to himself, but to the practice of orthopedic surgery as well. His care and concern for his patients far exceeds expectations and he is world renown for his surgical abilities and patient care. He is also highly respected by his peers in the medical profession.
