Having Dr. Killian do my reverse shoulder replacement was one of the best decisions I've made. One I wish I has made sooner. He is a kind, thoughtful person who gave me the reassurance I needed. It is six weeks since surgery and I am pain free and well on my way with range of motion.

Age 77, had right shoulder rotator cuff surgery. Dr. Kilian explained the operation thoroughly and the recovery. Surgery went better than expected, I now have full range of motion and will be starting strength therapy shortly. I recommend Dr. Kilian for anyone that needs shoulder surgery.

At 67 years old ... I had to have a Shoulder Replacement ... I can't say enough about my surgery / recovery ... It was surprisingly a fast recovery. I wish I would have done this sooner. I don't know why I was afraid and waited so long to have this done. I would totally recommend Dr. Kilian, he was excellent through the whole process. 10 out of 10. Thank you Dr. Kilian, and staff.

Dr. Christopher Kilian ranks highly in my book in many categories: ability and willingness to clearly explain plusses and negatives of surgery, patience to fully answer patient questions, keen grasp of current technologies impacting surgical success, intelligent and compassionate way of relating to prospective patients, and time-tested experience with many surgeries. After my successful rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Kilian, I recommend him highly, to family and friend.

Dr. Kilian was very good at explaining my injury to me. He told me what would happen if I did surgery and if I didn't. I chose to do the surgery. After the surgery he described the damage he found and how he repaired it, respecting that I have a bit of knowledge of anatomy. During my follow-up appointments he checked my progress by assessing my x-rays, function, and PT. I trust Dr. Kilian and would return to him any time I needed shoulder intervention.

I was very concerned about my torn rotator cuff and how it has limited my function and movement. Dr Kilian listened to my story, examined me thoroughly and then explained the surgical procedure he recommended. His explanations were clear and understandable and he answered all my questions. As a former orthopedic nurse I felt very lucky to have found him. I am confident going into surgery that I will get a good outcome. I will recommend him whenever anyone asks me for a good ortho doctor.

After a terrible experience with another surgeon, who would not acknowledge that I had gotten worse I went to see Dr. Killian. He immediately ordered the correct diagnostic exams and discovered ALL of my issues with my right shoulder. He scheduled surgery and my results are to date----FANTASTIC!! Dr. Killian follows up on you, he is reserved in his rehab system and that helps with an older patient and ensures a better recovery without re-injury to the shoulder. I couldn't be happier!!

First visit with CK. I had excellent experiences on other issues with several of his colleagues in his group. Referred me to him for his specialty, shoulder issues. After listening to my concerns he explained the options which would be available, clearly and in layman’s terms. I am very comfortable recommending him with very high marks.

Dr. Kilian replaced my total left shoulder about seven weeks ago and I am completely satisfied. It was a remarkably easy surgery, taking a little over 90 minutes. I stayed one night in the hospital and he saw me the next morning. I saw him again about a week or so later when I also had x-rays. He checked everything out and I was progressing well. I go to therapy about once a week and complete my exercises at home. Other than sensitivity at the incision site, I have had no pain. Amazing!

Dr Kilian performed a shoulder repair involving one detached muscle and several tears. He was professional from the beginning and truly cared that everything was done to ensure the best outcome possible, from the pre-op procedures to the post op physical therapy. I would highly recommend Dr Kilian to anyone needing any type of shoulder repair.
I highly recommend Dr. Christopher Kilian if you are experiencing shoulder issues. I had surgery ten years ago and my shoulder was bothering me again. On recommendation of my PT I made an appointment with Dr. Kilian. He was kind, understanding, and explained all my options. I chose surgery and have been extremely pleased with my results. I appreciate the fact that he is conservative and believes in a slow and steady recovery program. I feel that I am going to be better than I have been in the past ten years.
Dr. Kilian is an excellent doctor who listens and communicates very well. He is obviously very knowledgeable and explains his diagnosis so you understand your condition and what options are available to you.
I find Dr Kilian a most wonderful doctor. I had shoulder replacement 6 weeks ago and am doing great. He takes the time to explain things and to answer all your questions. He has a great “bedside manner”. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Dr. Kilian is an outstanding surgeon, very honest and straightforward. I had massive tears in my rotator cuff. Dr. Kilian explained the results from the MRI and the complete surgical procedure. My surgery went just as explained and the results are great. Therapy and recovery are ahead of schedule and I have full range of motion.
I recommend Dr. Chris Kilian. He strictly does shoulder surgeries and is very skilled and compassionate. I learned that he has studied under a world renown surgeon in Houston TX. My experience after my shoulder surgery was very good. I was able to drive and return to work within 2 weeks after surgery. Now after 2 mos. I continue PT but I feel excellent. My range of motion has returned 90%. I do not have pain.
Dr. Killian has a great bedside manner. He is an excellent surgeon and over all doctor. He’s the most personable physician I’ve ever had. He’s informative and made sure I understood everything about my surgery and recovery. He was always very prompt for all my appts and the surgery which went as expected. He’s my go to doctor for any issue with my shoulders.
Dr. Killian performed a total shoulder replacement on me 4 weeks ago. During my initial visit, he appeared to be very knowledgeable and competent. Explained everything to me very well. I left that appointment feeling I would be in excellent hands. Surgery went well, and Dr. Killian’s kindness and concern for me has been evident. My recovery and therapy are on schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Killian.
Dr Kilian did rotator cuff surgery on my right side . He is one of the kindest ,Compassionate doctors i have ever met. Dr Kilian explained everything about the surgery and the recovery. I would highly recommend him !
I had reverse shoulder replacement. Dr. Killian is very personable and is easy to speak with. He explained everything and what to expect and understandable. I can think of one word to explain this experience. AWESOME. Six months and all is well. Thank you.
Dr. Kilian at OAW (Orthopaedics of Wisconsin) is easy and pleasant to speak too and was very thorough in the evaluation of my shoulder. He explained the procedure and was upfront in the length of recovery. Through the surgery and physical therapy and OAW, the healing process is proceeding as planned. After six months I have 95% motion and no soreness anywhere. In a few months I expect to have full recovery and start golfing again. I highly recommend Dr. Kilian and OAW physical therapy for new surgery or the repair of previous surgeries by other others that have not turned out as expected.
When I broke my femur, Dr. Kilian did the emergency surgery that put me back together again. He did a wonderful job and I consider myself very lucky that this skilled and kind man was available to help me.
After breaking my collar bone, Dr. Kilian was instrumental in providing a skillful hand in surgery, providing answers to my many questions both pre and post op, and providing support post-op. His genuine concern for my healing is most evident. I certainly feel that I'm in good hands with a knowledgable, talented doctor.
Broke my hip at the rip old age of 28 and he put a plate and rod in and as soon as I woke up the pain was already tremendously better! Have been seeing him as I recover and everything is going well and as expected.
Dr. Kilian did an excellent job repairing my torn rotator cuff on my right shoulder! He his very professional, compassionate, and talented. I was also pleased with how he actually took the time needed to listen to me and answer my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Kilian!
I had rotator cuff surgery done by Dr. Killian. Everything went as he told me it would. He explained to me prior to surgery what to expect, and he was right on with his expectations. Even my recovery and therapy are on schedule with what I was told. Overall a good experience and I appreciate his honesty with me.
Dr. Kilian performed a total shoulder replacement on me about seven weeks ago. The procedure was about 90 minutes and I stayed overnight in the hospital. He was prompt in checking on me and was very personable. I was on mild pain meds for only 11 days and got noticeably better everyday. I have had therapy once a week and complete my exercises at home. I have seen him twice since then and I am progressing well. Truly, this surgery was a breeze! I highly recommend Dr. Kilian!
Mine was not an elective surgery I was struck by a car while i was walking Dr Kilian a caring highly educated & dedicated Dr was assigned to my shattered shoulder with a reverse replacement He did an awesome job. I am doing better that I ever expected . Thank you Dr Kilian.
