  • There was hardly any wait time, even though the lobby was full. I was very comfortable with Dr. Sparling. He explained everything clearly. I appreciate the time he took to go through all the options.

    Listened to and recorded my joint problems, suggested guided cortisone injection to right hip for relief during my beginning prostate cancer treatment and suggested seeing a Rheumatologist to explore recent increasing problems with multiple joints.

    Dr. Sparling is an incredible surgeon. Having both my hips replaced at the same time and walking better now than I did before surgery is incredible. The pain before surgery was hard to deal with. It was minimal after surgery. Thank you so much.

    Rebound was commended to be a first rate orthopedic clinic. My first hand experience confirmed that this was a very accurate commendation! My session with Dr. Sparling reassured me of the wisdom of my choice of treatment strategies for my knees and the probable outcomes that would accrue. I am duly assured that I can receive the best possible medical care!

    I wanted to have another cortisone shot. Dr. Spalding explained to me why having another cortisone injection was not in my best interest since I am waiting for my knee surgery—and he believed it was too soon. He was caring and made several suggestions that were helpful. He personally introduced me to the surgery scheduler to identify where I am on the wait list. I was impressed with his caring concern and professional expertise about my specific case. Thank you for asking. Sincerely, Suzanne Roberti

    I had Dr. Sparling and his team replace both hips in 2020. Both were done with the direct posterior approach. The incision was minimal, the closure method left a barely noticeable 6 inch scar. Recovery was uneventful and I was able to get back on my mountain bike 5 weeks later. I highly recommend Dr. Sparling for hip replacement.

    Dr. Sparling performed my hip resurfacing surgery more than a decade ago. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Recently, it became clear that the other hip was ready for replacement and I specifically requested that Dr. Sparling do the procedure.

    Appt was on time, filled out necessary paperwork, taken to an office, immediately went down for a hip X-ray prior to the appt with the Dr. Dr Sparling then came in and explained what he saw on the X-ray. He then explained that my right hip was bone and on bone and recommended the procedure he would recommend. Following that he placed me on a bed and worked my leg to determine it's mobility and pain associated with it. Dr Sparling then dictated a complete recap of our appt and had his people put together a notebook regarding the hip replacement that I agreed I would do. Very efficient appt, completed in less than an hour. Looking forward to the operation within the next three weeks. Very impressed.
