My Exceptional Experience with Dr. David Huberty at ROC: A Journey to Recovery

Recently, I had the privilege of being under the care of an exceptional surgeon, Dr. David Huberty, an Orthopedic Surgeon and Fellowship-Trained Shoulder Specialist, at Regenerative Orthopedic Center (ROC) in Tualatin, OR. From my initial consultation to my surgery in the spring of 2023 and the subsequent post-operative follow-ups, Dr. Huberty, John Boyle, P.A., and the amazing clinical staff all provided excellent and compassionate care. They were all timely, professional, and truly concerned for my well-being.

My journey began in late 2022 when I was involved in a traumatic 60-car accident on I-5. Fortunately, I only sustained back and shoulder injuries. While attending physical therapy, my back injury recovered; however, my shoulder injury continued to be painful and weak. Despite my efforts, I couldn’t regain the strength in my shoulder, which was incredibly frustrating. I found myself relying on my non-dominant left arm for almost everything, including lifting a coffee pot, shaking hands, opening doors, and lifting my work bag. Traveling weekly for work became a challenge as I couldn’t lift my bag into the overhead compartment with my injured right shoulder.

In early 2023, an MRI revealed a massive rotator cuff tear. My primary care physician immediately referred me to Dr. Huberty, stating that he was the best. This sentiment was echoed by my physical therapist, friends, neighbors, and medical colleagues, which was very reassuring since I had never undergone orthopedic surgery before. I was eager to resume my active lifestyle, which included gym workouts, hiking, running, walking races, and being able to lift that pesky suitcase while traveling.

What I loved about Dr. Huberty was not only his experience and skill set but also his empathetic nature, kindness, genuine concern, and positivity. He always answered all my questions thoughtfully and directly. During every visit, he measured my progress and guided my recovery.

Now, I am thrilled to say that I have returned to my Orange Theory workouts, 10k runs, and half-marathons. I am traveling again and getting stronger every day. Dr. Huberty’s exceptional care and guidance have been instrumental in my recovery.

I highly recommend Dr. David Huberty for anyone in need of orthopedic care. His expertise, compassion, and dedication to his patients are truly remarkable. Thank you, Dr. Huberty, John Boyle, and the entire team at ROC, for helping me get back to the activities I love. – Lynn
