"Three weeks before track season ended, I sustained a small fracture on my left foot, and had damaged my left knee. I damaged the knee and foot while triple jumping. Thanks to Dr. Conrad I was able to rehab my knee and foot to such an extent that I was able to win the discus throw at the Alabama State Track and Field Championships. Dr. Conrad stayed in constant contact with my coach and with our athletic trainer, which helped me come back from an injury. Many people thought this injury was the end of my track and field season. Dr. Conrad explains your injuries, but his greatest gift other than his medical gifts is his ability to listen to his patients. Thank you so much Dr. Conrad! You helped make this state title possible. And, by the way you helped me set a new school record in the discus throw!" -- Nanette W.

"I went to see the doctor to get a shot in my shoulder to stop the pain. Dr. Conrad looked at my X-ray and said I needed a total shoulder replacement. I was in the process of getting cleared for surgery by my internist when I fell and broke that shoulder. Dr. Conrad looked at the X-rays and said because of the way the bone was broken we would have to wait until it was completely healed to do the surgery. It took nine months to heal and we monitored it all the way. Finally we were able to replace the shoulder. The surgery went well and I spent three days in the hospital. I truly did not have pain after the first day. I took no pain medicine after the first day. I started out with physical therapy three days a week. I really worked hard in therapy and at home. Consequently I got full use of my shoulder. Six months after surgery Dr. Conrad discharged me and I immediately took off for the Florida Keys and caught a ton of fish. I could not be more pleased with my shoulder and I think Conrad is the best!" -- Mel L.

"Yes I would like to share my story and my experience with the staff at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C. First let me say that I am a veteran of our most recent war and was injury in Iraq where a weapon nearly took my life a couple of years ago. I was in and out of the hospital for while, and after returning home here to the Mobile area and I took a fall in the front yard where I extended my arms, which caused them to break. My fall, which at that time seemed like nothing ended up to be much worse. After talking to my doctor he referred me over to The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., where I met with Dr. Conrad who came in very nicely and very direct. My X-ray results where in and it was not the news that I wanted, but the staff and Dr. Conrad assured me that I was in the best of hands with him. The staff at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., made my surgery well and everyone was so nice, very helpful, and did a great job. My stay was short and I can’t thank them enough for taking care of me. I'm into my third week of recovery and all is well. Thank you again for all that you did and the physical therapy staff was just awesome. You guys ROCK!" -- Stanley S.

"Within 24 hours of my sports related injury, I had an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Conrad, a prescription, a physical therapy schedule, and options to act upon if our initial plan did not yield a positive result. Dr. Conrad of The Orthopaedic Group is two for two in helping me get back on my feet (on the road and in the pool) because of a sports related injury. While my plans are preventive, if something does occur, he is the individual I will be contacting and recommending." -- David F.

"When I was 15 I tore my right lateral meniscus. Dr. Taylor operated on me and I was fine until summer 2011 when I began to have pain again. I saw Dr. Conrad and it was determined that I needed surgery again. He performed the surgery and within a week or so after, I able to start getting back to light activity. I have had one cortisone injection post surgery because my knee hurt all the time. As it stands today, I can tell my knee is not at full strength and it does ache some, but I am able to run and exercise at will which was the best outcome I could hope for. I was very pleased with my care pre and post surgery and would recommend this office to friends and family." -- Ellen L.

"Just at this time my right arm began hurting quite a bit each time it was moved. It was very painful so Dr. Conrad found that the new arm needed adjusting so he used the new arm he had ordered and then it quit hurting and seemed to work very well when in place. Dr. Conrad finished placing it where the old arm was removed and it worked very good. Then Dr. Conrad finished what else needed to be done and the new arm seemed to be okay. The next morning at the hospital he asked how much pain I had suffered during the night and there was none. I slept a few hours, had breakfast, and went home. What a great experience that was. And I never did have any pain. A great doctor did a great job and other than a little pain in moving once in a while. I love my great arm." -- Edna G.

"I saw Dr. Conrad for the first time in late May of 2010. He gave me a cortisone shot and ordered an MRI. My MRI revealed a torn meniscus. I am not certain when that would have happened. I had a second arthroscopic procedure on July 20, 2011 and rehabbed the knee. I saw Dr. Conrad in December and had another cortisone shot. The knee continued to get worse. I saw him in early June and underwent another series of supar injections. I had the last one on July 10. I talked to Dr. Conrad at length about my situation. At the present time my knee has actually gotten a little worse. We agreed that if I see no relief by the middle of August that I am to contact Audrey and set up a knee replacement surgery. Dr. Conrad took the time to discuss the type of knee product he uses and what I can reasonably expect. I see no alternative other than to have the surgery. Everything I have learned tells me that Dr. Conrad is an excellent surgeon. He takes the time to talk with me and appears to actually listen. I expect now to have this surgery sometime near the end of September if all pre-testing procedures go well. I am apprehensive about having major surgery, but the daily pain in my knee and the limit it places on my ability to move around are no longer acceptable." -- Charles T.

"I started feeling a sharp pain in my knee when I was out running with my dogs, which I love to do. I had been to another doctor and his suggestion was to quit running. Dr Conrad actually listened and knew I wanted to be able to go running. He scoped by knee and I'm back to walking my dogs (it's only been two weeks) I feel confident that in the next month I'll be back to it!" -- Catherine Q.
