I had my ACL and meniscus fixed by Dr. Uppal at ROC Surgery Center. Everything was first class from preop to postop. I'm two weeks out, off crutches, and on a bike. Took only five pain pills first off. Dr. Uppal is my go to guy for Sports Injuries. Could not recommend more highly. 5 Stars.

Dr. Uppal removed bone spurs from my left elbow in 2009 and my right in 2015. He did fantastic work both times and have had no issues in either elbow since. I have complete confidence in him and his surgical expertise.

I had confidence in his expertise and felt his compassion and concern for my comfort.
