  • Awesome Doctor, had a train wreck of a shoulder, he put me back together. Range of motion and recovery came quicker than most. Highly recommend this man...

  • I can't say enough about Dr. Li. i tore my rotator cuff on my right shoulder 3/11/16. I saw him in August referred by my lawyer he gave me cortisone shot & to do PT & said i had a 90% tear of the cuff that i would need surgery.

  • Honestly, one of the BEST orthopedic surgeons that I have ever had. I’ve encountered multiple orthopedic surgeons in the past but none of them can beat or even compare to Dr. Li! Dr. Li and his team make sure you feel comfortable and safe at all times.
