- Shoulder Replacement,Left/Right hip replacements & Left ankle fusion
“What can I say. My body is a mess but BBJ always
puts me back together.”
- Heel spur and tendon
“I had surgery for a heel spur that also included repair of the tendons. Dr. Keith Hill was marvelous. He is a great doctor, everything turned out as expected. Before surgery he drew a smiley face on my toe nail to mark the targeted foot. I looked at that smiley face over the next few weeks and it made me smile every time I felt discomfort and pain. Thank you Dr. Hill for a wonderful doctor patient experience.”
- Spur removal & rotator cuff cleanup
“Dr. Isabell went into right shoulder to remove spur and cleanup cuff area, very successful surgery. The staff and surgery area did an outstanding job of diagnoses, preparations, actual surgery, post follow-up, with the upmost professionalism. I am completely satisfied with the end results. ”
- Orthoscopic shoulder repair and clean up
“I thought I needed an injection in my shoulder because I had had a recent time of lifting and over use. Dr. Isabell helped me understand that my pain indicated damage. An MRI confirmed damage. Preparation for surgery, surgery, follow up and rehab were all done carefully and thoughtfully about what I needed. This was not the first time I have had care at BB&J, and my experience there affirms the excellence of care provided. ”
- left and right rotator cuff repair
“Very impressed with Dr. Gene Isabell and his entire staff, Dr.Isabell personifies what a doctor should be. He genuinely cares about patients healing so that they are able to resume an active lifestyle. He repaired both of my shoulders and I honestly say they haven't functioned or felt better in many years. Dr, Isabell is an "old school doctor" who practices cutting edge state of the art procedures. Why travel to Houston,New York,or Boston, save your money and still receive the best care available. ”
“I had a great experience with Dr Hill. He and his staff are top notch. I heartily recommend them for your injury. They will help you get your life back!”
- Surgery to repair a broken humerus.
“My humerus was completely broken in half, in addition to two spiral fractures. The surgery required drilling through the length of the bone, aligning both sections of the broken bone up and inserting a rod down thru both arts of my humerus. He then had to make incisions in order to place pins in each end of the rod. I am amazed at how well it all worked out. Minimal scarring, also. I am sixty-eight years old. Considering my age, many doctors would have made much larger incisions, to make it easier and quicker for them. Thank you, Dr. Kergosien!! You are wonderful!”
- heel surgery to straighten foot
“Severely broke ankle, went to Houston to have repaired, the surgeon there did a poor job of lining up my foot when he fused the main ankle joint. I had suffered severe pain for a number of months when the Houston surgeon gave up on me and said that he had done everything that he could. After a number of months more being in pain I went to see Dr. Hill at Beaumont Bone and Joint. He suggested that he would do a fusion on my heel joint and would use a couple of pieces of my fibula (which was no longer of any use to me) as wedges to straighten up my foot so I could walk properly. Dr. Hill using his superior surgical ability did a fantastic job on my foot. I now have a foot that is straight and pain free. I wish I had gone to Dr. Hill in the first place. It would have saved me a lot of pain and agony. Thank you Dr. Hill and thank you Dear Lord for bringing such a marvelous surgeon to Beaumont.”
- Left Shoulder Arthroscopy
“Dr Isabell performed my surgery after trying other things to help relieve my pain and discomforts. When I first went to see Dr. Isabell it was for several things that was bothering me. He took the time to make sure he found out what was going on in every area and sent me to the people who could help me. Thanks to him after years of suffering he has taken care of more of my ailments by listening and taking action by sending me to who I needed to see. I was kind of concerned to have the surgery he wanted to do because of listening to others. I am so grateful I pulled up my boot straps and went through with the surgery. I have not had any pain, so the pain pills I was prescribed went untouched. I was able to move my arm in ways I wasn't able to in years. I find I can now sleep through the night without my arm and shoulder going dead on me and interrupting my sleep. I am so grateful to him and his staff who have been nothing but kind and helpful to me. I have recommended several people to him for similar problems because I know he will help them just as he has me. Thank you to him and his staff for all they have done for me.
- Surgery on my right foot due to a break of my metatarsal bone.
“If you have need for a Bone and Joint place this one is your best bet. They go out of there way to help. I broke (crushed) my metatarsal bone in my right foot Easter Sunday. Dr Hill was my surgeon, he had to put a plate in my foot. Dr. Hill and his staff are so awesome. They really care about their patients. I hope I don't need them again but if I ever do you can bet I will be going back. I just want to say Thank You to Everyone at Beaumont Bone and Joint...”
- Rotator Cuff & Tendon Tear Repair
“Dr. Gene Isabell, repaired my rotator cuff and tendon tear and I am 100% satisfied with the results. When I first met Dr. Isabell, he explained everything to me and showed me what he was going to do. When he started the surgery he went out to tell my son that the tendon tear was worse that he thought, but he repaired all and I am doing great now. I am a very active person and I did what Dr. Isabell told me to do, because I wanted to be able to get back to what I was doing before the surgery. Dr. Isabell and his staff are wonderful, they are so accommodating and answer all your question and make you feel very comfortable. The Bone and Joint Therapy staff are wonderful also, they helped with my recovery. Why would you want to go to Houston with all these great physicians we have here in Beaumont, Texas. Thanks to all the staff.”
- Knee Surgery
“I had knee problems for years, it finally got to the point I needed help. I saw Dr. Thorpe and preformed surgery 6/21/17. When I arrived at the office the staff was very friendly from the time I got there until the time I was dismissed. The doctors and staff explained every detail in simple English that I could understand. They seem to really care about the patients and family there with them. The office called me today to check on me and I thought was great. My knee is much better no more pain and I can finally get a good nights sleep. Thank You Dr. Thorpe and staff. P.S this is the second procedure I have had at BBJ first was my finger in 2016 by Dr. Currie and the same hold true for him and his staff. Thanks Again. ”
- Rotator cuff surgery
“I tore rotator cuff in a fall. From the appointment desk to the recovery room nurses, the folks here are both friendly and professional. Doctor Curtis Thorpe explained what he was going to do, and kept my wife informed while I was coming out of anesthesia. First class business all the way.”
- Complete Ankle Replacement
“I want to thank Dr Hill and his wonderful staff for the care and treatment during my ankle replacement. My surgery went great. The recovery period was a little long but basically painless. The staff was always available for any questions I had. I'm walking pain free for the first time in years. I'd also like to thank Dr Currie for diagnosing the problem, (he is always there for me and my family) and for recommending Dr Hill. ”
- Torn meniscus knee repair and clean up arthritis damage
“I want to thank Dr. Gene Isabell for repairing my left knee so promptly and thoroughly. I'm back to playing soccer, kickball, etc., with my grandkids just 10 weeks after surgery. My wife had her left knee done; and I see my former coworker, Terry Wunsch, had his left knee done. It's true, Dr. Isabell and his staff are fantastic at what they do and the way they treat their patients. I heartily recommend him to anyone with knee problems!”
