“…Buenos Dias Dr. Max,

It has been 9 months since you performed surgery on my right shoulder for supraspinatus tendon tear and removal of spur.

I am very happy to tell you what a difference the surgery made to my lifestyle. Since the surgery I have been able to sleep through the night. This was a big bonus as I lacked sleep for many years prior to seeing you. Also I am able to do many house chores and have started using weights to build my muscles.
In addition, I have been walking without pain ever since you injected the cocktail into my ichmus tendon. I am also using weights to increase strength and muscle tone to my legs.

I can only speak of you in the highest regard for helping me get my life back. You are very dear to my heart and I am very grateful for all you have done for me.
Hopefully we will meet again soon.
Big hugs to you,…” N.K.

“The hospital was spotless, the staff was professional and very helpful and don’t worry, English is spoken by many. My surgery went without a hitch… Dr. Max and his professional and caring staff made my hip surgery the best decision I could have ever made…” J. R.,

Knee Arthroscopy

“I was immediately impressed with Dr. Max Greig, my surgeon in PV, Mexico. His training in Guadalajara as well as Germany and his dual citizenship with the US and Mexico all relieved me of all pre-surgery anxiety.” R. R.,

P. H.
Rotator Cuff

“Dr.Greig was exactly what I hoped for, a trilingual Mexican native of Canadian and German decent. Doc laid out the game-plan, examined my shoulder for ideas. and took my MRI CD for homework.” P. H.,

R. W.,
Total Hip Replacement

“Dr. Max Greig, very professional, very friendly, personal touch was second to none, I never knew a doctor as well as I do Max. I feel like I was more informed going into surgery before and after than anything I had in the states, it seemed like in the states I was on a need to know and here they answered any questions I had.” R. W.

M. S.
Total Knee Replacement

“I had a knee replacement surgery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico done by Dr. Max Greig. My knee is in terrific shape, no complaints the surgery was very successful, I am able to do many things including golf and yoga and all kinds of different sports” M. S.

“…this year, I decided to stop lying to myself about the need for knee replacement. I mean, how long can one say, I’m too young to need THAT? In my case, I could have had the surgery done anywhere, and in fact, I investigated surgeons in the US, Singapore and then here in Puerto Vallarta.”
W.H. – PVR
“I chose Dr. Max Greig based on his credentials and credibility. Dr Max made me feel the most comfortable, and was most willing to spend the time answering questions. Clearly, Dr. Max is focused on building relationships, not just cutting people up. His natural warmth and charisma contribute to a great bedside manner.”
