- Knee Surgery
“I had knee problems for years, it finally got to the point I needed help. I saw Dr. Thorpe and preformed surgery 6/21/17. When I arrived at the office the staff was very friendly from the time I got there until the time I was dismissed. The doctors and staff explained every detail in simple English that I could understand. They seem to really care about the patients and family there with them. The office called me today to check on me and I thought was great. My knee is much better no more pain and I can finally get a good nights sleep. Thank You Dr. Thorpe and staff. P.S this is the second procedure I have had at BBJ first was my finger in 2016 by Dr. Currie and the same hold true for him and his staff. Thanks Again. ”
- Rotator cuff surgery
“I tore rotator cuff in a fall. From the appointment desk to the recovery room nurses, the folks here are both friendly and professional. Doctor Curtis Thorpe explained what he was going to do, and kept my wife informed while I was coming out of anesthesia. First class business all the way.”
- Complete Ankle Replacement
“I want to thank Dr Hill and his wonderful staff for the care and treatment during my ankle replacement. My surgery went great. The recovery period was a little long but basically painless. The staff was always available for any questions I had. I'm walking pain free for the first time in years. I'd also like to thank Dr Currie for diagnosing the problem, (he is always there for me and my family) and for recommending Dr Hill. ”
- Torn meniscus knee repair and clean up arthritis damage
“I want to thank Dr. Gene Isabell for repairing my left knee so promptly and thoroughly. I'm back to playing soccer, kickball, etc., with my grandkids just 10 weeks after surgery. My wife had her left knee done; and I see my former coworker, Terry Wunsch, had his left knee done. It's true, Dr. Isabell and his staff are fantastic at what they do and the way they treat their patients. I heartily recommend him to anyone with knee problems!”
- Rotator Cuff Repair
“Dr. Isabell performed a rotator cuff repair surgery and I was very satisfied with his care and manners. He was sensitive to my condition and the time it took to heal. He was very careful to make sure I was prepared to return to work before allowing me to do so. I would surely recommend Beaumont Bone and Joint to anyone needing their service.”
- 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!”
- 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! ”

“My terrible trip to BBJ turned out to be a blessing. I had trouble with the people in PT so I went to Dr. Thorpe's secretary and she put me with Brittany. Brittany made my day. She refitted my brace and explained how to put it on properly. Brittany works for DJO. Dr. Thorpe I hope you read this as you have a winner in Brittany.She's got a great attitude.”

- 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”

His assistant's are very knowledgeable, and were very helpful in my recovery. A very positive experience!”
- 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!”
