The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hoellrich.
  • Unbelievably well done total left shoulder replacement. Worst pain was constipation from pain pills, which was changed. Surgical scar is very faint, movement is great and no pain. Your staff, and hospital staff did great work. As you can see, I can't say enough. Thank you.

  • “I had planned to go to Portland for my shoulder replacement, but once I met Dr. Hoellrich and he answered my questions, I knew that he should be my doctor. Everything went fine, and on my one-year check-up he said that I had done so well on my rehab that I was "in the 99th percentile" of the shoulder replacements he had done.  Only eight months after my shoulder replacement, I had to have extensive repair of my other shoulder.  But this one was an arthroscopic surgery and could be performed at the Slocum Surgery Center. Compared to the hospital experience, the surgery-center surgery was like going on vacation. I was in and out in about four hours, there was very little waiting, and everybody was so nice.”

  • “Dr. Hoellrich was understanding with my situation of having to delay my surgery and when the time was right for me treated me fast and did a perfect job repairing my shoulder. My surgery went better then and woke right up thanks to the great anesthesiologist. I was very pleased with my shorter than I ever thought possible rehab time.”

  • “My total experience was a very good one. I tell everyone who will listen that I recommend it for everyone. And the surgical process of a total shoulder replacement was a successful one. The nurses and staff were great. And importantly, I recovered without incident. I was pain-free during the first two days because of the nerve block. I walked a mile or so in the hospital daily. By the time I was discharged I did not need any pain medication. Post op the therapy went extremely well. I was able shortly after the operation to return to my normal duties. I basically remain pain-free today with most of my range of motion restored. I worked hard for three months before surgery to prepare. I walked long distances in the hospital to get pain free upon discharge. And I pushed through my therapy sessions. These seem to have helped me to have a quick and successful recovery. However, I was reminded by Dr. Hoellrich, just before discharge, that a lot of my post surgical muscular recovery was due to good genes and not my hard pre and post surgery workouts. We both had a good laugh on that statement. It is now almost six months after surgery. I am able to do almost everything I want to do that I did before the operation; and some things that I could not do for some time because of the shoulder pain.”

  • “My family doctor recommended Dr. Hoellrich for my wrecked shoulder and I respect her advice. It did take over two months to get an appointment but after the initial visit, the surgery date was only a week later. Not only did I have a full rotator cuff tear, my bicep had to be reattached, bone spurs removed and cartilage smoothed out.   I'm in week 14 of my recovery and I can't be more pleased with the results. Now I am starting strengthening exercises and I am so pleased that I'm going to have a right shoulder that is better than ever. Before you know it, I'll be shoveling dirt and painting ceilings.”

  • “Dr. Hoellrich replaced my right shoulder one year ago. As far as I am concerned he is a miracle worker. I no longer suffer with chronic pain and have better range of motion than I ever expected. The doctor, his PA and his staff have treated me very well during all of my visits. I also received physical therapy at Slocum and it was very rewarding. My overall experience was excellent.”

  • “"In 2012, I had two total knee replacements (separate surgeries) done by Dr. Lantz.  On August 28, 2013, I had a total right shoulder replacement done by Dr. Hoellrich. All of my surgeries have been due to arthritis.  I am currently a 72-year-old woman.  Both of these surgeons come with my highest recommendations.  Also, I liked the fact that either surgeon did not use staples.  The nurses on staff are very professional and friendly. They made me feel like I'm part of the family." -- Pat B.”

  • “"My name is Leona Norman, I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I love to be active and I enjoy many outdoor and indoor activities. Some of my favorites include, hiking, biking, snow skiing, sledding with our dogs, working out, scuba diving, and many more. Three years ago I realized my shoulder was having a serious problem. My previous breast cancer treatments, were to blame, I thought such as scar tissue, etc. I started looking into finding a doctor who I trusted and also respected. After three years of extensive research and many medical professionals later, I arrived at Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. My appointment was with Dr. Rudolf G. Hoellrich. I entered the room with a huge list of questions and a hope that this would be the doctor. To my surprise Dr. Hoellrich was not only all the things every reference said he was, an excellent doctor, amazing in surgery, well liked by his peers and patients, but he was very easy to communicate with. On June 26, 2013 I went into surgery with Dr. Hoellrich for a partial shoulder replacement in my left shoulder. That was four weeks ago and I am surprised at how well I am healing and recovering. My shoulder no longer hurts and I will resume my life and activities in the near future, without pain!! I am extremely happy and thankful that I found Slocum Center and Dr. Hoellrich." -- Leona N.”

  • “"Living with shoulder pain and very limited range of motion for over a year has been a life-altering and sometimes emotional rollercoaster. I had tried all of the nonsurgical therapies, working hard to improve my situation, but the modalities were not in my favor. Because I am a physically active individual, my physician, Dr. Paul Bilder, referred me to Dr. Pomranky who diagnosed my rotator cuff issues and she then referred me to Dr. Hoellrich. Dr. Hoellrich and I discussed my options, and we agreed that surgical shoulder repair was my best option for recovery. "The surgery was remarkable as was the recovery, and now I am one month away from complete healing. My range of motion returned quickly, and I am so thankful for that because my tears were large and old. I am still in the healing phase but feel strong and healthy again. Since I had my surgery, I have talked to so many of my friends who have ortho issues and tell them to go to Slocum Center and get on with their lives and stop dealing with something that can be corrected." --Carol K.”

  • “"I required a full shoulder replacement and contacted Dr. Hoellrich. He confirmed that surgery would be in my best interest., and it was done in October 2012. Dr. Hoellrich gave good postsurgical care and  follow-up.  I would definitely have any future surgery performed by him. "Slocum Center is an excellent clinic. I feel it goes beyond any medical experience, and I recommend it to all. They make a patient feel as though they are a real person, not just a patient." --Marie O.”
