Hi Jayne, I wanted to say thank you for recommending Dr. Argo. He was terrific and my knee is doing so much better. I found out that I did tear my miniscus, but he was able to help me avoid surgery! I had a great experience at the Western Hills office.
Again, thank you very much!

I started swimming at the age of 13 for the local YMCA and needless to say I was the slowest one on the team. After getting a summer and winter season under my belt that following summer as a 14 year old I was breaking and creating pool records. Getting faster meant finding a team with a training regimen that would fit USA competitive swimming and that took me to Cincinnati Marlins and Miami Valley Aquatic Club along with swimming varsity for my high school Lakota West. After high school I attended Wittenberg University and swam Varsity. Throughout my high school, club and college swimming I developed persistent shoulder problems that would not go away. I managed to hold my own with a shoulder that would randomly slip out all of the time, but that didnít stop me from placing top 12 in the 500 and top 8 in the 1650 free at Conference. Through the span of 1999-2006 I had six shoulder surgeries on my right shoulder and with each one I was recommended to stop swimming. I couldnít just give up on a sport that I love and enjoy. The injury cost me a lot, Nationals, Olympic Trials and a lot of time out of the water. The six shoulder surgeries that I had consisted of capsular shifts, labrum repairs and debridements and after each surgery I was told the same thing, ď If you donít stop swimming your going to need a shoulder replacement by the time you are 25Ē. By the time 2006 had rolled around I had my sixth shoulder surgery that was just a debridement, but I started to think, ďIím tired of having my shoulder constantly cleaned out with no relief from pain.Ē I decided to see Dr. Argo, just from seeing all of the success he had with other patients I wanted to give it a shot. January 2007 he performed a capsular shift and a labral repair and to say I am finally pain free for once. It took over a year for me to get back to swimming, but I am back in the water enjoying what I love to do. It may be on a recreation level right now, but I hope that someday I can swim competitively again.

Dr. Argo and Staff, Thank you for providing the wonderful care that has now placed me in a position to get back to football at Oak Hills. The ACL injury was devastating last October, but over the course of these months, I have rehabilitated fully and am ready to play. I experience no pain. We are in full pads, and I have my first game coming up very soon. It's been a long road to recovery, but I am stronger now. Thank you, A senior at Oak Hills High School

Dr. Argo was recommended for my relative. I saw how he treated him and decided this is who I wanted for me.

TO: Dr. David B Argo From: A Dayton Police Officer I'm 42 years old, 6' 00 tall and a 240 pound Dayton Police Officer who works out year round, but my activities were cut short by yet, more shoulder pain! The second time is a charm and here's my story. On February 28, 2006 Dr. Timothy Kremchek done an arthroscopy surgery on my right shoulder due to a torn Labrum. The surgery was successful but, after about 18 months, I starting to feel pain in my right shoulder once again. This pain was different, from the pain I had before my previous surgery on 02-28-06. I had lost a substantial amount of range of motion due to scar tissue that had developed around my rotator cuff. The pain also kept me from sleeping and hindered my work performance as a police officer for the Dayton Police Department. My year round activities include basketball and flag football were cut short, because of the amount of pain in my right shoulder once again. I made an appointment to meet with Dr. Kremchek again in January of 2008. When I meet with Dr. Kremchek, I also meet with Dr. David B. Argo, they both ordered X-rays on my shoulder. After reviewing the X-rays, both Dr. Kremchek and Dr. Argo both notice that the rotator cuff was very ridged and that arthritis had set in, due to previous bone spurs. Both doctors decided that a partial Hemi Replacement would be the only thing that would help take the pain away. Both doctors talk to me about it, my biggest concern was, was this actually going to help the pain and would I eventually be able to play sports again? The answer was yes and yes. I was told by Dr Argo, it's not going to be the way that GOD made it, but it's going to be good! The was all I needed to hear. I made the appointment and was excited about getting the surgery done. On March 15, 2008 Dr. Argo was to do the surgery with the assistance of Dr. Kremchek, but due to some scheduling changes on my part, Dr. Kremchek was not able to be there, instead Dr. ********* filled in for Dr. Kremchek. I remember looking up at Dr. Argo as I was being wheel into surgery and telling him, I was ready! It was funny because, I then woke up and asked, when were we going to doing the surgery? Dr. Argo smiled and said, I'm done! I looked down at my arm and notice the sling, I told him, you're good and went back to sleep. I stayed in Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati Ohio, from Wednesday afternoon until Saturday afternoon. Throughout my stay, the staff at the hospital as well Dr. Argo and Dr. ******* continuously checked on me day and night. I was finally without pain. I was released from the hospital and very strict instructions from Dr. Argo about my therapy at home. Seven (7) weeks after surgery, I was able to raise my arm and move freely without the sling. 10 weeks after surgery, I was back to work as a Dayton Police. Before my surgery, I had to re-qualifiy with my duty issued Glock 40 cal., I scored a perfect Hundred (100%). I also scored another perfect (Hundred) (100%) with the shotgun, while placing the stock of the shotgun on the same shoulder of my surgery. It's been five (5) months since surgery, I continuously do therapy at home to strengthen my shoulder. The only pain I have now, is the pain from week and repaired tendons. I've already started (tossing) a football and shooting (free throws) (Don't think I should have said anything about the sports, I was told to wait six (6) L O N G months). I pain free except the healing and thatís my story. Thanks and much love to Dr. Argo, his assistant Joe Ehrhart, the staff at BEACON ORTHOPAEDICS, Jennifer Wormald , Bev Kuhn, the Chiropractor Mathew Syrek as well as the staff at Good Samaritan Hospital for all the work and prayers. Last but not least, I have and will continue to recommend others to Dr. Argo and Dr. Kremchek.
