Dr.Even changed my life literally.I went to him for severe back pain. I had no quality of life.He did all the right testing gave me all my options . After great thought and fear of back surgery. I finally let him do a TLIF. It is now 14 weeks later and my quality of life is amazing, He gave me my life back. His office scheduled all aftercare appointments for me. All I had to do is get better,Him and his staff are nothing short of being amazing. Words cannot express my gratitude to all. Thanks for all you do.

I was in a serious car accident. Back and brain damage. i shave suffered for 5 years because of insurance . I researched and found Dr Evens. I went in the first of 2018 and surgery was scheduled April 20th.. Disk fusion on c5/c6. I was hoping for a 50% reduction in pain. Five months later I am at 80-90% reduction in pain. Sure there will be days. But i am amazed on what Dr Evens was able to accomplish. Also any visit will be one of complete satisfaction. To to people at the front desk to the nurses. The visit is one you will not forget. Dr Evens always asks me before he leaves if I have any more questions. If I do he will take his time to answer. Completely unheard of these days of medicine. A+ on all levels.

Over the past 10 years I have had the experience of being treated for orthopedic issues by Drs. Meister and Seroyer as well as P.A. David Escajada.
My history with this facility includes a couple of knee procedures (arthroscopic) and a complete right shoulder replacement. Because of their skills my outcomes have always been excellent.
I also owe a great deal of gratitude to the outstanding therapist (Regan, Daniel, Tom, etc) who, gently and professionally, brought me back to full function through their expertise in physical therapy.
All of my experiences at TMI Sports medicine have been outstanding and I cannot praise them and thank them enough.

I was one of the lucky Vietnam Vets. My daughter was going to TMI for an issue with her hip. I was escorting her to the doctor’s office when I noticed they did knee replacements. At the time I was trying to have my knee replace by the VA hospital in TX. I had recently relocated from CT where I was supposed to have it replaced in November of 2017. I had been waiting for three years to get this done. I had been through all the shots, gels and had reached a point where I needed to get my knee replaced. After speaking to the folks in the VA in TX, I was told I would have start all over again which meant it could take another three years before they would replace my knee. I could not wait that long.
I talked to the folks at TMI and they setup me up with an appointment to see Dr. Shane Seroyer. The appointment day arrived and I was seen by Justin, Dr. Seroyer’s PA, after looking at the X-ray’s he concluded that I needed a full knee replacement. His next comment took me back when he asked how soon I wanted the operation next week or week after. I know this might sound strange, but after dealing with the VA for the past 17 years and waiting three years to get close to having operation, now I could have a date with in two weeks. We set the date for July 12th 2018. I went home and told my family I was going through with the operation and the date. I visited the hospital where the operation would take place and was blown away by how nice the hospital was and all the staff and doctors. A week before the operation I meet with Dr. Seroyer he asked if I had any questions or concerns.
While with any surgery you have some fears and concerns, I had to admit, between the hospital and TMI, I was totally at ease with the operation. He said ok see you next Thursday for the op. On July 12th 2018 I had my right knee replace. Everything went to plan the surgery took about 1.5 hours, not that I would know as all I remember was shaking hands with Dr. Seroyer and then waking up in the room. Just the way you want to have an operation. As TMI have performed so many of these operation they have learned from past experience keep the pain levels down and the patient will be a happy. I had no pain but yet I was still alert did not feel out of it.
The hospital staff could not have been nicer they took care of all my requests, the food was great as well. I was there for three days. I was up walking with in four to five hours after my operation, they had me doing simple exercises to start to strengthen my leg muscles. I had PT twice a day while I was in the hospital. I was on my way home by Saturday.
Once I got home I had an appointment for Monday at TMI for physical Therapy. Now here is where the fun starts, no one actually tells you about this part, getting your knee to function again. Not as easy as you might think. I had my first appointment for PT with Luke he walked me through the process of recovery to get my knee back to 100% with no limp in my walk. It was suggest I do PT three days a week, while I am coming up on week four now, my progress has been extremely good. I was off the walker within a week, the cane by week two.
Pretty much walking on my own by week three. As Luke told me how we recover is 100 percent up to us, he can only provide us with the tools to do the work, we have to do the work. The hardest part and Luke did tell me the first day was to get your leg straight again. This might sound funny, at least I thought so, but when he first showed me what I had to do, I wanted to cry, the pain was so strong. You go home after the PT and while you are doing the exercises you feel great, you get home and the pain sets in from your muscles being stretched. The next day is even harder, but it is up to you to get up and do the stretches and exercise to get the strength back in your muscles.
TMI Sports Medicine: I cannot say enough good things about them, everyone there is friendly, willing to go out of their way to help you. I needed some PT appointments on certain days and times so I could still do my day job, they worked with me to get them done. The PT staff, I am not sure I have enough time to express my thanks to each of them. While the doctors and Physician Assistants, and ladies behind the desk all help, and assist you, and will do whatever it takes to help, it is the Physical Therapist who gets you back your feet. As Luke is my Physical Therapist I have to make special mention for him, there are days I come and do not feel like working out, because of various reasons, lack of sleep, hot, generally not happy. He always, offers the genuine Southern Gentlemen smile and hand shake, always addresses you as Mr. or Miss or Mrs. He first checks to see how your day is going how your feeling, and genuinely wants to know if you are doing ok. This mean so much when you are not feeling well, that Smile and asking you how you are feeling its worth a million dollars at least to me it is. Luke has taken the time to help me recover, and shown me the things needed to get my leg back in shape.
As I stated before the hardest part of the recovery is getting your leg straight, Luke would try and give me an exercise to work on straighten my leg, I hated it the pain was the worst, but he worked with me and we laughed about it, but he never stopped working on getting my leg right. I see this man juggle three and four patients at one time, all the while making sure each one is doing what they need to do for their PT. Luke used the latest equipment available at TMI to help, that means a lot today, technology is important to our health and our recovery.
I am very thankful to TMI, Dr. Seroyer, Justin Coplinger, nurses, assistants, the PT staff and the ladies behind the desk and other staff at TMI for everything they have done for me and my family.
Thank you Richard Garrow

It’s been over 4 years now since I’ve had total knee replacement on both knees. I have to say even though everything went as expected, it was tough going for the first couple of weeks, but it was the best thing I’ve done to improve the quality of my life. Thank you Dr. Shane Seroyer

Drs. Even and Robertson have both had me under their care for neck and shoulder procedures that made my life so much more enjoyable.
The cleanliness, courtesy and knowledge of the staff and physicians is above reproach. The folks at the front desk are as helpful and accommodating as one could wish, and when having procedures, then doing your therapy, you will be made to feel as if you were the only person they had to see all day.

I got sideline pass for the Mansfield vs. Midway playoff game and it was the first time in 5 or 6 years that I was able to stand up on the sidelines, without having to bend over constantly to relieve the pain and numbness. I was able to walk around and legs never started going numb and pain has been greatly reduced. Huge for me to be able to do that again! Thanks Dr. Even.

On October 28,2016 I sustained my first football injury, tearing every ligament in my left knee. Thanks to Dr. Robertson he not only gave me surgery but changed my life. This injury has made me a different person on the football field and in life, it taught me hard work, perseverance and it increased my passion for football. After the longest process of my life (rehab) I was finally released to play football again, I started the season back to my old position before I got hurt on the Defensive line, as the season progressed I got moved to a much harder position on offense call halfback. Through the season I've had my ups and downs with my knee but managed to keep it flexible and strong. Now I play offensive line for Mansfield Summit. Again, I want to thank the TMI trainers and Dr. Robertson for all they have done, because of them I have made just enough plays to help my team make playoffs.

I have always driven by TMI, it looked nice from the outside; I was very impressed once I was able to visit as a patient. I felt like I was getting celebrity treatment.

Absolutely the most comprehensive Sports Medicine Facility in the Metroplex. If you have a young athlete this MUST BE YOUR FIRST STOP. Don't go to places that don't specialize in Sports. They really understand the process and immediate diagnosis and plan to get back on the field
