- Total Knee Replacement
“I am a 52 year old female, I had severe arthritis and no cartilage left in my right knee. On November 7, 2016, I had a total right knee replacement. Dr. W. Rizk was my surgeon and I had the procedure done at Baptist Hospital in Beaumont. He explained everything in great detail prior to surgery and made sure that I was well informed. He answered all of my many questions. His office staff was excellent and very helpful with getting all of the arrangements made for surgery. The surgery went as planned, I was standing up in my room that evening and walking in the hall the next morning. I have had little to no surgical pain. I used a walker while in the hospital, a cane when I went home and was completely cane free and walking unassisted within 5 days after surgery. Prior to surgery, severe knee pain limited me doing the activities that I enjoyed. Three months post op, I am pain free, my range of motion is almost completely back to normal and my incision is healing beautifully with minimal scarring. I will be having my left knee replaced in the near future and will definitely use Dr. Rizk as my surgeon. In my opinion, Dr. Rizk's surgical technique leads to faster recovery with the least amount of pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Rizk to anyone considering knee replacement surgery.”
- Left Knee Torn Meniscus Surgery
“After struggling through some knee pain for about 6 months, I finally took the time to see Dr. Gene Isabell at the Beaumont Bone & Joint facility. Dr. Isabell was professional and very knowledgeable. Against the odds, he was able to save my meniscus and essentially saved me from a lifetime of swelling, pain and arthritis. I can not thank Dr. Isabell, Audrey Reyenga and his entire team enough for their help in repairing my knee - you will not find a better team in the area for knee repairs. Dr. Isabell is the best - just ask around!”

- Torn tendon repair on left foot
“I want to thank Dr. Keith Hill and his staff for the excellent work and care they gave me. He and staff were very professional and caring . I would recommend to anyone who needs surgery to see Dr. Hill for any ankle or foot problems. I also want to thank Dr. Todd Clarke who diagnosed my problem and highly recommended Dr. Hill who said that Bone and Joint is very fortunate to have him on the staff. Also, the physical therapy department was very caring and did a wonderful job of helping me get back on track with my foot problem. I don't know Mike"s last name in that department but he and his staff are super in their area of expertise . Thanks alot guys and gals for all that you folks did for me. Gary Richardson”
- Torn meniscus knee repair
“Dr. Gene Isabell performed the surgery on my left knee for a torn meniscus. I wanted to say the surgery turned out great, my knee feels wonderful.
I am playing golf again with no pain at all. I highly recommend Dr. Isabell to anyone with knee problems. First class doctor with a first class staff.
His assistant's are very knowledgeable, and were very helpful in my recovery. A very positive experience!”
- Ankle surgery, ankle replacement
“Finding Dr. Hill was a Godsend. I have had ankle problems since I was a teenager and by 73 my whole foot was severely deformed making it very hard to walk. Dr, Hill took on the challenge when other doctors had said it was beyond repair. It took 2 surgeries: the first one straightened my foot to the almost correct angle and many months later I was healed enough for ankle replacement. An MRI was done and an ankle replacement was made just for me. Surgery was performed in January of 2015 and several months later I could walk again. Dr. Hill said that my case was one of his most challenging. He is not only a gifted surgeon, he cares about his patients. I could not have gotten better care anywhere else and I would recommend him to anyone with similar problems. Thank you Dr. Hill for making it possible to walk! ”
- Elbow Surgery to reattach tendon
“On June 6th, 2016 - I rolled my truck 4 times on the way home from work. After being in the hospital for a few hours they sent in a team of 5 Doctors, assistants, specialists, surgeons, etc. Dr. Chapman was the surgeon who operated on my elbow by re-attaching my tendon with a screw. Despite the pain throughout the process; today is August 11th, 2016 and I feel fantastic. I'm sure there are a lot of great surgeons out there, but Dr. Chapman is a true professional, very well educated and an excellent personality. I would highly recommend his expertise to anyone in the unfortunate incident of needing any kind of surgery! On a scale of 1 to 10, BBJI & Dr. Chapman definitely get rated as a 10!
Thank you so much for all your help.

- 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.”
- Repair a ruptured patellor tendon, then repair a torn ACL
“My son injured his knee in a football game on a Saturday in October, 2015. Dr. Isabell looked at his knee at the field and had us meet him at BBJ(during the game). He immediately stabilized my son's knee and prescribed something for pain and told us to be there on Monday morning at 7:30am. To say that this doctor went above and beyond is an understatement. A MRI was ordered and it turned out to be a very bad knee injury. The first surgery to repair the patellor tendon was scheduled for the Friday following the injury. Dr. Isabell's assistant Audrey Reyenga gave her personal phone number out and checked on my son following the surgery. In January, 2016, The second surgery to repair the ACL was done and the same wonderful care was given. I can say that Dr. Isabell and staff have gone out of their way to care for my son and his injury. I can't say enough good things from this experience. My son was released today just in time to play football this season! Wow!!! Thanks Dr. Isabell, Audrey Reyenga and staff. You have our utmost respect and thanks!”

- Achilles Repair Dr. Keith Hill
“Dear Dr. Hill, Kristen and Britt-
In July 2013, I slipped in the shower area and a bone spur broke and was lodged in my Achilles. You recommended I give it some time to heal on its own, but if it didn't, surgery could be performed. I loved your conservative approach and was confident my body, which had never let me down before, would heal on its own. Well, by June 2014, I could barely drive to work without arriving in pain. You said I could have the surgery anytime I felt I was ready. You would debris the Achilles, elongate and attach it to my lower leg. I was really nervous, but trusted you and your team completed and, let's face it, unable to even drive to work without pain, what quality of life did I have? I made the decision to have the surgery which you performed in August 2014.
Within 3 months after the surgery, I was back in the gym doing 45 minutes on the elliptical with no complications. And, guess what I did two weeks ago? I hiked Horseshoe Canyon!! This is not a long hike, in and of itself, only about 3/4s of a mile but the conditions make it very tricky! It is an extremely steep decline (around 100 feet drop within the 3/4s of a mile) in SAND to arrive at Horseshoe Canyon and then, of course, straight back up-100 feet incline in sand to return to the parking lot. I hiked it in the middle of the day in Arizona heat! My Achilles was a rock star. I was able to grip the sand to keep from sliding going up and down which required that I engage my Achilles constantly in order to maintain traction. It did not let me down at all! I wasn't even sore afterwards. You all gave me my active, happy, life back doing the things that bring me joy and I cannot thank you enough. All three of you were patient with my incessant questions during my recovery. Some people think that as they age, they must just give up on an active lifestyle. You proved that is a myth! Thank you so much! I want to you know you made a real difference in my quality of life and we are blessed to have you in our area.

- Hand Surgery
“Dr. Robert Kramer, is not only an amazing surgeon, he is an amazing person! He has helped me with my hand after a major car wreck messed it up two years ago. I was beginning to think my hand would never be the same again, but after visiting him again after my first surgery he showed me hope, that maybe a second surgery could indeed improve my situation! After experiencing a major episode with my hand, the day after having my stitches taken out, he made time between busy surgeries to see me! He explained fantom pain, he helped me to understand what I was experiencing! He made me feel special! I wasn't just someone on an assembly line! He gave me a hug! Needless to say he is indeed a special Dr. Thank you so much, Dr. Kramer!”
