After the surgery, I did definitely notice a decrease in knee pain and was able to ride my road bike and mountain bike again with no problems at all. I think Dr. Milne does a great job of spending time with patients in the office and explaining the medical issues to them. In addition, I was very impressed with Dr. Milne's staff who were always quick to respond to questions via phone call and were courteous in the office.
Although I have not fully recovered from what ails me, I don't think it has anything to do with a lack of care on the part of Dr. Milne or his staff. I would definitely use Dr. Milne for future joint issues and would definitely recommend him to a friend.

It's been 11 months since my rotator repair. Flexibility and strength is back 100%. I'm a carpenter, and routinely lift heavy tools and materials. No pain, no problems. My only regret is that I didn't have this done years ago.

Since being treated, I have been doing great. I run 3 to 4 times a week and completed the St. Louis Rock N Roll Half Marathon in October of 2012. On occasion, I do have tightness in the right knee but simply stretch and use a roller along the ITB area of the leg. I have continued with strength training and plan to complete another half marathon in March of 2013.

Dr. Milne and his team were amazing to work with.........After being told that there "wasn't anything wrong" with my shoulder by a local doctor (but still experiencing extreme pain), I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr. Milne! He listened to my symptoms, ordered the appropriate tests, and eventually scheduled surgery. Even though it will be some time before I"m back to full strength, I so appreciate everything he did for me!!!

Could have not had received better care before, during and after my surgery. Dr. Milne and his staff are true professionals and I would not hesitate one moment sending my family to see him. In fact, I am planning to have my other shoulder done real soon. I would say, don't waste your time or money on any other facility. Dr. Milne and his staff will do it right the first time Outstanding Doctor with an Outstanding staff!

I would like to acknowledge the excellent and professional care I received from Dr Michael Milne following my torn rotator cuff. From the first appointment through my last post-surgery check-up, this entire staff of Orthopedic Center Of Saint Louis was outstanding in their care for me.
- Marcus J. 12/16/12
If anyone wants their injury taken care of, you are the man to see. You and your staff were very kind and gentle with me before, during and after my surgery.
- Carol H. 12/14/12
Dr. Milne was great. He explained everything completely and in a way I could understand. He gave me options to choose from and informed me of what needs to happen in the near future.
- Dana H. 12/13/12
Dr. Milne & Team, The care I received at your facility was amazing. I was pretty disappointed when the pain in my knees increased after the surgery for the meniscus tear due to arthritis , but you listened to my complaints and found a treatment. I'm happy to report the gel shots you injected into my knees has decreased the pain to a minimal amount. I actually started noticing a difference within three weeks after the injections. I know it's not a permanent solution and I'll need to come back in the spring, but I'm very pleased with the results. I have recommended you to several people. Thank you for checking on my progress. Happy Holidays!

- Don W. 12/11/12
Great Doctor with an excellent staff.
- Daniel R. 12/11/12
Dr. Milne has repaired both of my rotator cuffs, I have had no difficulty since the repairs’. I am a very active individual and my job is very demanding on my body, I am a public safety professional working both police and fire duties. I work out four days a week at the local YMCA and have been able to return to my normal workout routine, I feel that I am as strong as I have ever been. I know of people who have had surgery at other locations and have not had the same results that I have, I credit my success to the skills and ability of Dr. Milne and his team.

- Mary L. 11/28/12
My experience with Dr. Milne was very pleasant; he actually saved me from an operation that wasn’t necessary. I was already being admitted, and he took one look at the current X-rays. He decided I was better than expected, and cancelled my surgery. I had a broken hip, followed Dr. Milne’s instructions and I currently have no problems. Thank you to the entire staff.
- Brenda F. 11/27/12
The shoulder is fine. I am at 100% strength. You all did a great job.

Dr. Milne examined me and referred me to Dr. Lux for a total knee replacement which I had in January 2012. I was tremendously pleased with Dr. Lux and his office and my knee is doing well. I appreciated Dr. Milne being so honest and straightforward with me and referring me on to Dr. Lux. I have already referred a friend to Dr. Milne.

- Sandra M. 5/30/12
I was told that about a year after knee surgery that I would be thanking you. Well, it has been a bit over a year now and I am overdue to deliver that well deserved gratitude. I'm back to being active, playing hockey, and most importantly can easily hunker down to play with my 2-year old daughter. Thank you!

Michael has been working in Alaska during the months of late May- September during the last 4 years. Previously with a company called Alaska Mountain guides Michael had th e opportunity to take clients up Mt. Kilimanjaro, not once once but twice! This year as he was getting ready to drive back up to Alaska, when someone had contacted him via Facebook to see if he could take his Paddelboard to Alaska for him. This ended up being an opportunity of a life time! He ended up being in a kayak and documenting all that was needed for the Guiness World record, 238 miles in 24 hours. He would go from the boat with motors and 2 river guides and the videographer with the kayak to Ben and take him the food and nourishment needed. Document the input/output for the 24 hours. You can view this on the following websites I have listed and then have the ability to go an vote for the team too. Of course had you not done such a great job on his shoulder injury I don't think this would have been possible. Thank you!
- Christel T. (proud mom of our previous patient) 8/10/2012
Fantastic all around! I had an MRI on my elbow, and it turns out I don't need Tommy John. Dr. Milne did an amazing job explaining what was causing my discomfort. Some physical therapy and I will be all good.. I will recommend him any day.

Three months ago I had shoulder and bicep surgery. In two days I'm doing an indoor tri- my first race in six months. This wouldn't be possible without Dr. Milne and his wonderful staff. Without them I would still be a hurt mess that would be unable to enjoy the activities I love. Thank you!
- Jeff B. 1/18/2012
I am not a big fan of seeing someone else other than a MD when I decide to visit a doctor. But recently I started having pain in my shoulder. I knew who to go to…Dr. Milne. But he was out of the office. I agreed to treatment by his PAs. Nothing more than awesome! Thanks Mari, Chad and Nicole (the gatekeeper)!
- Bill K., St. Louis, MO
We could not have asked for a kinder, more professional or talented doctor. With your expertise my husband has hopes of a FULL recovery. Thank you is just inadequate.

I injured my shoulder at work in May of 2011. After many visits with another doctor and physical therapist, I was beginning to get frustrated. I was not any better at all. Workman’s Comp referred me to Dr. Milne in June, and I had a totally different experience! The staff was extremely friendly and Dr. Milne made sure ALL of my questions were answered and concerns were addressed. I highly recommend The Orthopedic Center of St. Louis.
- Megan H., 26, Elsberry, MO, Warehouse Selector
Getting ACL Reconstructive surgery was my first major surgery. Before my surgery, I felt very nervous and unsure about having it so sudden. My experience with The Orthopedic Center made the decision for surgery much easier. I felt very confident and calm after they took the time to talk to me and inform me about all of the details. My overall experience was great! And I would recommend The Orthopedic Center to everyone.
- Jacob M., 22, Maryland Heights, MO, Student/Football
My care was excellent. I was never rushed to get better. Staff was very nice and professional.
- Richard B., 52, St. Louis, MO, Auto Handler
Excellent bedside manner, didn’t feel rushed at all. High tech office and diagnostic all on site. Knowledgeable, professional staff. HIGHLY recommend!
- Julie, IL
Dr. Milne is an awesome person and an even better surgeon. He performed one challenging and very difficult shoulder surgery on me after I destroyed my right shoulder in a skiing accident. Granted I've pushed myself through some insane physical therapy and a lot of pain, but I'd have to say at this point I am almost fully recovered and actually have better range of motion now and am more flexible than ever before in my life. I know initially we thought I would probably never do pushups, dips or pull-ups again. Thanks to you, I've far exceeded those expectations. Special Thanks to Dr. Milne and your amazing staff!!! Everyone was always so nice and helpful there, it's like no other office I had ever been too. You all were very consistent with keeping things on schedule and reliable when it came to appointment times. It's nice to have a Dr. that appreciates and respects the patient’s time as being important when we show up on time and respect yours. Thank you for everything, May God continue to bless you, your practice and your futures. Love you all!!!

Dr. Milne, you did my knee surgery last year around this time and my knee feels better than it has in years! Your staff was wonderful throughout the whole process!!
- Julia M.
Due to 38 years of lifework, I experienced aggravating shoulder pain. I heard Dr. Michael Milne talk at my place of work and called for an appointment. After surgery and physical therapy I’m almost back to normal, thanks to Dr. Milne and staff.
