Thank you Dr. Main, your assistant Loree, and to your entire staff for making me feel very much welcomed to your office as an out of state patient coming there from Idaho. I truly felt hometown warmth and kindness. After many years of conservative care and not being able to get 2 different surgeons to even help me in the Spokane, WA area, I sought out Dr. Main through searching for his name that I found. In 2009, Dr. Main had published on the internet, a case study of a patient that I identified with in similar symptoms and history regarding a chronic subluxation and/or posterior dislocation of the proximal tibiofibular joint of the lateral knee. I had a phone consultation with Dr. Main and he really listened and understood what I was dealing with. He welcomed me to his office should I want to travel to Missouri. I had no choice but to come to Missouri when all the doors were closed in Spokane for a surgical intervention. Here is a picture of Dr. Main and myself at my post-op appointment before flying home. Now 3 months later since my 5/14/13 surgery, I have healed very well. No more lateral knee pain. Dr. Main reviews my videos I send him of my progress and then he does a Skype computer appointment with me. It is the next best thing to being there in person. Dr. Main definitely cares about my full recovery just as if I were a hometown patient of his. For me, that means the most besides such a successful surgery. Please read my full story on the Proximal Tibiofibular Arthrex TightRope Dynamic Stabilization Surgery done by Dr. Main.

My name is Tammy Rudloff and I had my shoulder surgery on April 8th 2013. I am going back to work tomorrow July 30th 2013. I have had the best care anyone could ask for. My surgery went very well. My physical therapy was the longest part but it was partly due to my age. The nurses and doctors and staff have always been very nice and supportive. I would highly recommend Dr. Main and his team. Thank you for everything.

Dr. Main and his entire staff are the best!!!! My husband and I are truly impressed with Dr.Main. He takes his time to talk to you and treats you like a friend! I had a bad experience in Columbia with my first surgery & needed another one. Iam so glad we chose Dr. Main. We highly recommend him and his staff!!!

Dr. Main performed bi-lateral knee surgery on me at the end of July, 2012. I cannot say anything but praise for the excellent care that he and his staff have given to me. They are kind and caring and the patient always comes first. In addition, the new rehab facility that Dr. Main built is first class. The therapy pool is a godsend to patients recovering their mobility. MRMC is lucky to have an orthopedist of Dr. Main’s calibar associated with their facility. Wendy Nall and the physical therapists are wonderful.

I had a total knee replacement done on Nov 8, 2011. I did great with it. Dr. Main and his staff was very good at helping me get thru it all. I was doing great at week 1 and could walk without a walker or cane at that time. The pain was not bad at all. I’d do it all over again. Dr. Main is great at what he does. This is the 3rd surgery he has done for me. This knee was the biggest one but so worth it. Thanks for all the support you and your staff gave me during my surgery and afterwards.

I think the world of Dr Main and his staff. The care I have received at MidWest Bone and Joint Center has always been professional and exceptional. Dr Main has helped me tremendously and I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care.

Dr. Main allowed me to shadow him as a high school student. I couldn’t have had a better time, or a better teacher. I am now a 3rd year medical student and just wanted to say thanks! You’re in great hands with Dr. Main.

I came back almost a year later to have my second surgery done with Dr. Main for my Right Leg Proximal(lateral Knee) and Distal(lateral ankle/high ankle sprain)Tibiofibular Syndesmosis Stabilization surgery with Arthrex TightRope Fixations. I was back to my sport of horseback riding very quickly once physical therapy started and I completed 5 weeks of non-weightbearing. For my full surgical blogs and recovery stories, please see my website

As I write this patient testimonial, I am now 8 months since the surgery. I couldn’t be happier, and I am so pleased with Dr. Main’s surgical skill and patient care. The rehab after this surgery was a little bit more difficult because Dr. Main had fixed both ends of my fibula bone in one surgery compared to last year’s surgery on just my left Proximal Tibiofibular Joint only; however, I did heal completely by 14 weeks after this surgery. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Main for doing these Arthrex Tibiofibular Joint Surgeries as they provide excellent stability for the lateral knee and ankle without compromising the bio-mechanics of the leg. Through my blogs and patient to patient chats, I will always continue to refer patients to your office. A special thanks to all of Dr. Main’s staff that has taken care of me these past 2 years.

Dr. Main and his surgery to fix my subluxing tib/fib joint was God sent. I don’t think I would have made it much longer without a resolution. He fixed what many others I saw could not even diagnose. I appreciated his skill to just genuinely listen and believe me even though my story was not streamline. I love to tell the Orthopedic Surgeons (MDs) that I work for that I’m not limping around in pain anymore because after they gave up on me, I went to another state and saw a DO and he fixed me.
