If you are planning to see Dr Provencher ,do not hesitate ,do it. In 2018 Dr Provencher replaced my LCL. I had no complications and very little pain. I did my physical therapy as prescribed. I was able to ski 30 plus days the winter of 2019-2020. Before seeing dr Provencher I had spent a years time trying to solve my problem locally. I saw a pain specialist, orthopedic urgent care and a orthopedic surgeon. All had access to an mri done locally. It was also read by local radiologist. Pain dr gave injections as did orthopedic urgent care. No relief from pain. Orthopedic surgeon told me about arthritis, meniscus needing cleaning up and general deterioration from age. Told me to take ibuprofen for pain. At that time I reached out to Steadman Clinic. By luck of the draw I was assigned Dr Provencher. I took with me the mri that had been done locally and viewed by 3 local Drs and 1 PA. It took Dr Provencher less than a minute to tell me my problem was my LCL after viewing my mri. He told me my options . I selected surgery as I wanted to continue an active life style. It was a complete success!!
I had my reverse shoulder replacement with Dr.Provencher four months ago. Took an hour, home an hour later. No pain with the meds cocktail, ice machine, and lidocaine pump. My recovery was incredible quick and effortless, no pain and good range of motion. Dr.Provencher is really the best surgeon, and a genuine and kind human being. If you are able to have Dr. Provencher do your shoulder you would be a fool to go anywhere else. The Steadman Clinic is state of the art, extremely efficient, using tranexamic acid intravenously right before surgery to minimize bleeding and many other sophisticated strategies not available in community hospitals. The process and the outcome way exceeded my expectations. If you would like more detail about the experience email me or call on my cell, 3036182303.

My shoulder was ruined in a car accident. I am 82 years old and Dr. Provencher did more than I had ever hoped for. He did a reverse shoulder and at 2 weeks the range of motion exceeded what I had before replacement. He is my hero! Thank you, Dr. Provencher!!
I want to say THANK YOU to Dr. Provencher and his team, especially his PA, Scott Liegel. Looking for outstanding care and compassion? Look no further than Team Provencher and the Steadman Clinic. I am a 35 yo male with a long history of shoulder problems, going back to 8th grade and my first dislocation. Before seeing Dr. Provencher and his team, I had nine surgeries on my left shoulder. I had my first surgery in July to stabilize my shoulder. I had continued pain and discomfort. I had my 2nd surgery in November to clean up the humeral head. I continued to have grinding and pain in the joint. I had my 3rd surgery in December with Team Provencher, replacing the humeral head. I am currently three weeks out and have NO joint pain. My last Dr. told me that there was nothing he could do for me. Dr. Provencher and his team gave me HOPE for the first time in years. THANK YOU for letting me get back to playing with my kids and enjoying life again!! I am forever thankful.
Up in years, but remain very active in and out of the gym, on and off the golf course, and on and off the slopes on a regular basis. Even after many years of competitive sports, I had not an injury that required surgery. Dr. Provencher's professional manner, his experience and talent, as well as his team resulted in an amazing experience and outcome. To the detail, it has turned out exactly how Dr. Provencher described it would be. Thank you Dr Provencher to you and your Team!!
September 3rd marked the 4 month anniversary after Dr. Provencher gave me a new lease on life through Total Shoulder Arthroscopy Replacement. My rotator cuff was gone and short stopped what had been an active life with two German Shepherds, horseback riding, and swimming,. Worse, I could not sleep due to constant pain.
After receiving two surgical recommendations that included multiple surgeries spanning years came with no promise of improvement (I was told I was a poor surgical candidate), I wa despondent. Dr, Provencher, however, recommended single surgery (TSA) that would be performed outpatient, promised virtually pain free recovery, and after PT, he expected me to ride my horse and swim backstroke.
He spoke truth! Not only do I swim, but I have begun riding again. If you are tired of living a compromised life, I heartily recommend the extremely talented Dr. Provencher and his awesome team to surgically repair your body so you can reclaim and change your live.
After many years of great discomfort and rotator cuff surgery on each of my shoulders, I consulted Dr. Provencher after hearing so many good things about him from friends here in Santa Fe, NM. He suggested a full reverse replacement on my right shoulder before my left one. It has now been just over two months and the results have been fantastic! I am so pleased with Dr. Provencher, his wonderful staff and the Vail Hospital. Thank you Captain, you are truly the best of the best! Conrad Hool, film producer
I have been living with a destroyed shoulder for over 40 years. Matthew and his team did an amazing and professional job from the first appointment to the follow up after surgery. The results were amazing. Almost zero post op pain (no opiates) and a very quick rehab. Back on the bike in 8 weeks with more mobility and strength than I have had in a long, long time. I would highly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone with serious shoulder problems. Thank you all.
Dr. Provencher did a complete reverse shoulder arthroplasty on my left shoulder after a diagnosis of severe osteoarthritis.
Though I have not yet completely recovered at 51 days after surgery, I have recovered faster than expected. I can do almost all of my daily activities using the affected arm. I was able to go mountain biking again on easy trails.
I am no famous athlete. I'm just a 69 year old guy.
My experience with Dr.Provencher, Steadman Clinic and Vail Health was exceptional. I have recommended him and his team at Steadman Clinic to others. Thank you all at Steadman!
Dr Provencher and his whole team are second to none. He and his team really listen and take care in what matters to me as a patient. When I decided to go ahead with the reverse shoulder replacement, he spoke with me about what to expect and in the end, my condition created a bit of a challenge as I did not know I had osteopenia in my arm bone. He knew just what to do to make this work and all went well with little pain after surgery. I am so fortunate to have been with an innovative surgeon who cares about my resuming athletics even at my age.
And recently my partner fell playing tennis and hurt his shoulder. We were unable to see a doctor where we live for 2 weeks so we called Dr Provencher’s office and Robin and Katie responded immediately with an appt in 2 days. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the rest of the team as well – Sam, Tyler, Scott, Robin, Katie and more. No reason to even think of anyone or anywhere else.
