Dr. Quinn in the News

Just a comment or two about my recent experience at NWH. On March 28, 2019, I had a total shoulder replacement performed by Dr. Daniel Quinn of Newton Wellesley Orthopedics Associates. In summary, it was the best medical experience that I ever experienced. From pre-op testing to pre and post-surgery care, the hospital staff was superb and took excellent care of me. All were very professional, caring and talented. The surgical team led by Dr. Quinn was equally superb and did an excellent job restoring my shoulder. He is truly a great surgeon and did a wonderful job. It has been five months since the surgery and I am 90% recovered and enjoying my very active lifestyle, pain-free! All involved made this very tough and painful surgery tolerable and, based on the outcome, a very positive experience. Thank you!!
