Ratings for Dr. William Regan
Best surgeon ever. I have now had 7 surgeries on my elbow. 2 by the original surgeon seen when I dislocated, fractured, chipped and tore the muscles & ligaments 40 years ago. Dr. Regan has performed the last 5 and has kept me with the use of my real arm. He is innovative and extremely knowledgeable. My scars are barely noticeable. He is the only surgeon that I could find that would even take me as a patient. No one else would help or attempt to help me as my injury is very bad. I am devastated I have moved to Alberta and will need to find someone to continue my care. Not an easy search.
I cannot praise Dr. Regan enough! For such a highly esteemed specialist, he is exceptionally humble and willing to explain complex medical matters in terms that I could undestand. He even showed me how to read my MRI scans and precisely where the issues were. The arthroscopic shoulder surgery that he performed on me was so skillfully executed that I needed nothing but Advil for pain post-op, and the physiotherapist was astounded at how quickly I began to recover! I am having the same surgery on the other shoulder in a few days, and feel very blessed to be in the care of Dr. Regan (and the staff at the Cambie Surgery Centre) once again!
I met Dr Regan at WorskafeBC in the visiting specialist clinic for my rotator cuff tear. I liked Dr Regan, he's a very nice man, explains your injury for you to understand. When he talked about my injury, used my Xray's and ultrasound to show you the extent of the tear. What I liked about his approach that my surgery, should be my last option and was impressed how I exercised, stretched, used various professional to help me improve with my injury. At present time I don't require surgery, Dr Regan made his recommendations and will see him in a few months for another consult. Dr Regan is caring, kind and he put's you at ease, during your consult.
I am deeply grateful to Dr. Regan for fixing my shoulder. Following a workplace accident 7 months ago that broke the scapula in multiple places, I was told by other surgeons that nothing could be done, and I would have to live with the reduced mobility and pain. Not to mention I would not likely be able to return to work falling trees. Thankfully, I was given Dr. Regan's name by an eye surgeon who said he had heard great things about him. Dr. Regan is highly skilled, he's very easy to talk to, and he clearly knows his stuff. Thanks to his abilities, I am now pain free, and will be returning to work after rehab. Very thankful to be his patient! Dennis from Campbell River.
I had a torn rear labrum.Mr Regan repaired it but along with the repair came a whole set of new problems.range of mobility is ruined and I'm in pain most of the time.it locks,catches and I can feel crunching in there upon movement.I had the procedure done 5 yrs ago.I will get a different opinion this next time.I don't believe mr regan is interested in normal folk.I think he is more interested in people that pay $$ and pro athletes.
Dr. Regan is really the best surgeon in Canada. He fixed my shoulder after the car accident. He performed two surgeries on my left shoulder(2008 and 2010) and I recovered 100% in range of motion and 90 % in strength. He is a great doctor with the best possible manners and attitude. I would highly recommend him.
The guy saved my lifestyle!!! Dr Krywulak in Kelowna cut me open and messed me up and left me worse than before seeing him. After digging around and leaving me with some impressive bruises, he said there was nothing he could do to help me. I would have to live with shoulder pain and limited mobility forever. I looked for a second opinion. That was Regan. He looked at my MRI and said he could help. Can't say enough about my care in his hands. He over saw the residents doing the work actually. Almost immediately I had my arm and shoulder back. It's all good now! And he didn't even cut me.Thanks doc!!!
