Our patients choose us because we are able to offer them viable solutions to their pain. We offer hope to patients who have been athletes for years and suddenly find themselves faced with the possibility of never playing again, to elderly patients who want to maintain their independence and do things like drive and grocery shop alone, to parents who aren’t sure what is wrong with their children’s knees or elbows and want answers. Unlike in many other practices, you are not treated like just a number; we take the time to listen to your concerns and symptoms, accurately diagnose the source of the problem, and walk you through what will happen during the course of treatment.

Testimonials

Dr Horan has done a few of my knee surgeries and has always been the best surgeon. Dr Lao has been my physical therapist for every knee surgery and his results are proven and outstanding. I’d be in bad shape if it wasn’t for dr Lao and his staff who go above and beyond to do what’s needed.

Testimonials

Dr. Lao is simply the best! His intense educational training and specialty of the spine are something that you seldom come across these days. When I lived in Bradenton for 9 months I would drive over an hour just to see him because he was the only one I trusted with my physical issues. His assistant Sam is wonderful and Lisa at the front desk is always very helpful! There is another PT there that I have not treated with, but I only hear great things about him! 🙂 I will not go anywhere else.

Testimonials

This review encompasses both Dr Horan's orthopaedic side of the business & Dr Lao's physical therapy side. I have no idea if their practices are actually related, but there's only one street sign & only one Yelp check-in. Luckily, I think both doctors are excellent.
