“I do business with this office because they have an excellent Doctor (Dr. Douglas) and Physician Assistant, Craig Packham. They are well experienced in their field of surgery, Their care of me was excellent and they have shown perfectionism in the work that they do. I had a knee replacement done by Dr. Douglas. I am totally happy with the procedure and it went extremely well. My healing is going tremendously great. I recommend Tooele Orthopaedics to anyone for their great service. I give a TOP 5 star rating and a 10 if I could. My experience with this office has been great. Great timing, great service with a smile in office and reminder phone calls for appointments. Most of all, the medical staff is wonderful, great and very caring.”

  • Hip & Knee Surgery

“I had right hip and right knee pain and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both. After failing conservative treatment I had both joints eventually replaced. My right hip replacement and right knee replacement surgeries were well done and I am doing fine, it feels like my original hip and knee felt before they started hurting. Everything with my overall office experience was fine and good. Very happy with Dr. Douglas and his staff. ”

  • Right & Left Shoulder Surgery

“Fantastic doctor and physician assistants. Wonderful customer service. I always feel that Dr. Douglas and his staff take the time needed to answer my questions. I have had both of my shoulders operated on and both surgeries and recoveries went very well. The staff at both the hospital and clinic were outstanding. Staff members are always great. The doctor and his PA's all take the time needed and I've never waited long to be seen.”

  • Lateral Tendon Release

“Dr.Douglas and Chad are FANTASTIC! I had an ongoing problem with my knee that other doctors overlooked for years. I did months of PT and after my last dislocation, I knew I had to see someone. When I worked at MWMC I took care of Dr.Douglas's patients and he checked up on them even after post op, and sometimes walked down with them after surgery. He genuinely cared for his patients, so I knew he was my best shot. Chad had me diagnosed, MRI done, and approved for surgery in 3 appointments. I've never been so well taken care of, and I truly felt like he listened to my issues and concerns! Dr.Douglas came in before my surgery and explained everything to my husband and I, and Chad walked me through every step before and after surgery. Every question I had was answered, and I recovered so fast and could tell a difference weeks after surgery.

I have now hiked 4 times post-op, and haven't had an issue yet! I've always wanted to hike Zion, THANKYOU for making it possible, you guys are the best!!”

  • knee surgery

“My husband has had 2 successful shoulder surgeries by Dr. Douglas and now I had a behind-the-knee repair. I was walking the day of surgery and it's gotten better with each day. It has been 2 weeks and had the post op today. Things are healing just as they should and people can't believe I was up and about so soon. Thank you Dr. Douglas and your wonderful staff and team. Our family will continue to support you and recommend (as we already have) to other family and friends.”

  • Rotator Cuff Repair

“After 12 weeks of physical therapy, I finally have full range motion, flexibility and strength back in my shoulder. Recovering from a "massive" rotator-cuff tear is not easy and was very painful at times. Thank you to my orthopedic surgeon, Dr. John Douglas who performed my surgery and my physical therapist, Dr. Robert Pagnani, in helping me recover from an injury that turned out to be much worse than expected. I was told it would probably be 8 months or more to recover due to the severity of my injury. Dr. Pagnani helped me cut that in half. I thank both doctors and staff for their encouragement, their expertise and motivation to work hard and see this through. I am also grateful for a supportive and patient wife, Kristin, who helped me get to this point. Thank-you. I finally got the go-ahead to get my sticks out and chase a little white ball around the links next month. Yay ”

  • Knee Surgery

Dr Douglas, thanks so much for helping me with my knee. The surgery last April went great and I accomplished my summer goal of riding LOTOJA for the first time (204 miles, after a summer of training rides of more than 3,000 miles) and finished feeling strong, and just last week I ran my first trail 1/2 marathon since surgery and am feeling great. You are wonderful, and I would highly recommend you and your team!

  • Knee surgeries

“Dr Douglas is the best knee surgeon west of the Mississippi. He has worked on my knees two times now and his staff is great as well. I well send friends and family to him. All the staff know what they are doing and take care of you. Thanks Dr Douglas for working on me.”


  • Two knee replacements

“I have had Dr Douglas perform two total knee replacements, one in January and one in August of 2014. Many people had told me that after the first knee, I would not want to go back to do the second one. My experience with Dr Douglas and his staff was awesome. Before the surgery, my knees hurt constantly, and they inhibited my ability to do everything. I knew I didn't want to live that way. Shortly after the first surgery, I knew that I would do the second knee. I recovered so quickly, and was able to use the knee immediately. Now I am a year down the road from the second surgery and I can do everything with my knees and the pain is gone. I still have a little from time to time, but nothing like it was before the surgery. I do have to say that it is important to go to therapy and to work and strengthen the knees. Dr Douglas promised me that if I would do this, I would be able to do anything I want with my new knees....and he was right. I have referred and will continue to refer people to Dr Douglas. He and his staff care about their patients and they want us to succeed. I am so thankful that I followed the advice of a friend and went to Dr Douglas. I love my new knees!”
