In 2021,The National Library of Medicine’s Expertscape ranked Patrick Denard, MD, #2 for rotator cuff repair and #17 in shoulder replacements worldwide. He has also been voted one of the top 20 shoulder surgeons in North America and is the most widely published shoulder specialist in Oregon.

Drs. Denard and Phillips are shoulder specialists at the Oregon Shoulder Institute. They have advanced arthroscopy training and are able to perform the vast majority of shoulder procedures in a minimally invasive fashion, including all arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs and instability repair. These techniques allow them to repair tears that some consider “irreparable.” In addition, they perform anatomic and reverse shoulder replacements for shoulder arthritis and treat shoulder fractures. They are here to help you get back to doing things you enjoy!

I also appreciate that I have received after care verbally, on paper and electronically. A “push” of several methods of providing information vs. a “pull” on my part takes thought and effort. You, Candace and the rest of your staff as well as the surgery center staff are incredibly attentive, professional and competent…Read More

  • Thanks' Doc You are the best

    I re tore my shoulder and sought out 4 different opinions. Thankfully I found Dr. Denard and had a remote conference after sending him my images. He explained that he has great success with Superior Capsule Reconstruction with a Allergen graft. I had that surgery in April 2017 and am doing great. Easier PT, ROM was great right after sling was removed. 4 months later pain free, 100 ROM, and good strength. This is the first time in 5 years I am able to help in our garden. Thanks’ Doc You are the best. Barry

  • Skilled and Caring Services

    Dr. Denard repaired my injured shoulder Feb. 2018. Its been nearly a year since then and my shoulder is totally functional for me, remaining pain free too. Such skilled and caring services as Dr. Denard provides are all to rare these days deserving recognition and praise too. If you are considering shoulder surgery, I can think of no other doctor I would recommend more highly.
