Bryan Hill,  Broken Collarbone, Separated Shoulder, and Torn Hamstring

Unfortunately, Dr. Sutherland knows me too well. Over the past 3 years, Dr. Sutherland has treated me for a broken collarbone, separated shoulder, and a torn hamstring. Not only has he taken care of my injuries, Dr. Sutherland has helped me understand the importance of taking care of myself, which includes adequate rest, proper stretching and good nutrition. Thanks to Dr. Sutherland, I am looking forward to a healthy season on the football field and on the basketball court.


Olivia Young, Osteoarthritis

Driving 3500 miles a month, Olivia Young is no stranger to long hours. After recently going back to school for her masters degree in hospitality, Olivia knew that she wouldn’t be cutting back on work any time soon. The fact that she maintains an active lifestyle, makes frequent trips to the gym, and has had no prior health problems, made what happened on Easter Sunday, 2012 even more of a shock.

“I was walking, not doing anything out of the ordinary, when I heard a loud crack. A little bit later my left knee started to swell enormously and the pain was tremendous,” said Olivia. She went straight to the emergency room where she was told she needed to see an orthopedist as soon as possible. Unsure of where to go, Olivia asked family and friends. The answer every time was the same: Seek out Dr. Sutherland.  Read More


Trya Wahl, Shoulder Surgery

Following on the heels of a severe auto accident I had long standing issues with my shoulder being acutely weak for nearly two years. As a hair stylist my shoulder health is of the utmost importance to my career. As an avid cyclist and women’s figure competitor I took both my road and gym time very seriously. Being being married to a serious long course triathlete was also physically challenging volunteering at races and dragging around equipment at all day races. I desired my unrestricted strength and stamina back for both me and him.

I worked very hard for over a two year period to relieve symptoms of what my PT thought was a weak rotator cuff, but still suffered from a lack of stamina that neither my PT nor I could explain. Nearing the fourth anniversary of my accident my PT recommended that I see an Orthopedist.  Read More

He's on top of his game! Uses US guidance for injections to get to the exact area of concern. He doesn't waste any time.

Dr. Sutherland has always taken the time to explain my pain. It is not always what I want to hear, but I like to hear the truth instead of being handled with kid gloves. He has treated my knee, my wrist, and my elbow. I have always, and will always refer my friends and family to him.

It all began with a broken foot, followed by a trip/fall which created more damage. Prior to visiting Dr. Sutherland I had seen two other doctors and an acupuncturist. I had spent five months in a soft boot with no improvement in the pain I was experiencing. Dr. Sutherland looked at my MRI and determined the broken bones were healed and the pain was the result of numerous neuromas and he treated them. Hurray! No more soft boot and I could walk without pain once again.
