A.B.

Dr. Guanche is a skilled surgeon! He repaired my torn hamstring tendon. This is a rare procedure only a handful of doctors know how to perform. I traveled half way across the country have this done. I had not met Dr. Guanche prior to the day of my surgery. But I was impressed because I did receive a phone call from him directly and was able to ask him questions before I decided to have the surgery. Thankfully, his office was able to schedule my pre-op appointment in the morning and my surgery the same afternoon in his surgery center in the same building without me having to make two separate trips. My husband is an orthopedic surgeon as well, but was not able to join me on the trip. My surgery was done arthroscopically so I asked Dr. Guanche if he could film it so my husband and I could watch it later. He graciously did so. My husband, a skilled surgeon himself, was thoroughly impressed. He commented that Dr. Guanches’ knowledge and surgical skills in that area are top notch. I may need to have a similar procedure done on my other hip eventually and I will be going back to Dr Guanche!
