9 months ago I had shoulder replacement with this fine Dr.Gillen and Staff! The office meet, the procedure, the follow ups and then rehab went smoothly. Everything got back to normal after rehab and following Instructions. Simply go on with what you do!

Dr. GIllen and his staff is top of the line. Everyone I encountered treated me very well and made me feel very comfortable and fully explained the surgery I needed

   — Chad Ross


He was very good at explaining what the surgery would entail. When I saw the incision, I was very impressed at how unnoticeable it was! Pain went away pretty quickly, my recovery was ahead of schedule. I am very pleased with his work!!!

I fell down courthouse stairs. The hand rail curved. The stairs went straight. It has been about five mo. Since. My shoulder had to have orif surgery. It has full range of motion and feels fine. The scar is gone in some of the places and healing fine. The hip that was fractured is better than before. Karen

I had total knee replacement over a year ago. The process was much better than I ever expected. Dr Gillen is the best at what he does, I wouldn't go to anybody else.

Dr. Gillen did my left total hip replacement on September 16th, I ended up having some complications with my sciatic nerve and I ended up with the drop foot. My left foot, and lower left side of my leg has been numb since surgery, nerve pain is no joke. But Dr. Gillen has been very caring and very apologetic that this happened. His nurses Emily and Nancy are the best nurses I ever met! and Dr. Gillen is a big teddy bear, he is so sweet and caring. he has went over and beyond to try and make me comfortable with my situation. I would recommend Dr. Gillen to anyone!! Thank you Dr. Gillen for being a wonderful and caring Surgeon, you have a wonderful team w/Joe, Nancy and Emily!!

Incredibly caring, very knowledgeable, took his time explaining the process, as did his staff. I was terrified before surgery and he was quick to calm my nerves.

Dr. Gillen, his PA Seth, nurses Emily & Nancy are all very caring, and knowledgeable. They take care of you like you're one of their own family members.

   — Jacquelin Gengler


Dr Gillen and team are great! I just finished up a lengthy recovery, and everyone was great along the way. I experienced a few issues in the beginning and I had great support, quick responses and help whenever needed. Would definitely recommend.

   — Matt Miller


I would recommend Dr. Gillen to any member of my family or friends. This man works miracles. I had to have total hip replacements in both hips, and he did a remarkable job. It is the first time in years I have been able to walk without pain in my hips. Thank you so much to his nurses also. They are the sweetest and caring I have met in a long time.

Was sent to Dr. Gillen by the Topeka VA which has provided my healthcare since my benes ran out the spring of 2018 (last workday was in January). Since I had gotten my care primarily through KU and before that SCL, my expectations were fairly high. From the young lady at the desk through the nurses, and PA I was impressed by their patience and professionalism. Would rather Doc had a wider range of options to offer, but should the injections and rehab fail to make the need to repair the damage unnecessary I would not hesitate to put my care in the hands of Dr Gillen and his staff.

I’ve had three different procedures by Dr Gillen. Very pleased and happy with the end result. I would highly recommend this surgeon to family and friends. Joe and Emily on his team are awesome!

I have been with Dr Gillen for the last 10 years.He has performed 4 spine surgeries on me. He's a wonderful surgeon. I will be taking the 2 hour drive and following him to Topeka.The thought of having to go somewhere else terrifies me. He's not only a good doctor he's a good person. He takes the time to listen and is very considerate to your needs and wants. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having back problems.

   — Marcie Driver


He is good, friendly and does what he says. Both knee replaced 10 months ago, and am getting along pretty good. With some numbness due to a back problem I really have done very well with both knees. My progress I would say is slower because of the numbness from a back problem..but knees work fine and are getting better all the time.

   — Charles Long


Amazing surgeon and staff! Great at what he does. Explained injury and the surgery in detail. I would definently recommend him and his staff.
