My experience with Dr. Murphy has been excellent in all aspects. I recommend him as a surgeon because I think he is exceptionally competent-he has a depth of knowledge and experience in shoulder replacements. my surgery was tricky because of a previous fracture that left my humerus irregularly angulated. Dr. Murphy was able to successfully replace my shoulder and now 3 months out the joint is very stable and pain free. I've been very satisfied with the care I have received

In my estimation Dr Murphy is the finest surgeon I have ever dealt with. It has been a privilege to have been a patient of his for not only this surgery but a bilateral carpultunnel surgery in the past.
