“I was very nervous and fearful about what may come of this visit. I shared that fear with him and he made me comfortable by explaining the procedure and what recovery time would entail. The staff was very thoughtful, courteous  and helpful.  I also shared with the Dr. that Dr. Marrs did my knee replacement and I trust and respect him and Dr. Marrs recommended him I will trust him also.”

“Dr. Papendick is an amazing surgeon as well as an awesome person. He stopped me in the hall at BHOSC when we were there for something else and visited. Wonderful doctors and amazing facility. Would recommend it to everyone.”

“I am a 52 year old female and fell late last year. I came to Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center in December and was treated by Jerome Wenninger, PA for a broken hand. He gave me the absolute best care I have ever experienced. He was kind, very knowledgeable and on top of my treatment. He listened to every word and acted in the most professional way. I experienced complications in the healing process. He was right on target to give me the best care and knew the exact course of treatment to give me back the use of my hand, AJ Miller was my Physical Therapist. He is an exceptional therapist and truly outstanding in his field. He too is very knowledgeable and an experienced therapist. He was patient and kind in every aspect of my care. Without these two fine and extraordinary medical professionals, I truly do not believe I would have the use of my hand as well as I do today. I would recommend these individuals to everyone, and as well as all of the staff at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center. If you need medical care for orthopedic injuries, come to Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center and you will get the best care in the area!”

“I was happy after I left with the prospect of a surgery that would improve my quality of living. I appreciated the order there was from the reception desk to the X-ray area to the exam room. I also was encouraged by Dr. Marr's approach and business-like attitude toward upcoming treatment. I look forward to the outcome!”

“I went to Dr. Papendick with a problem in my right shoulder. He started my treatment by using minimally invasive treatments (cortisone shot, PT, etc.). As my shoulder worsened, he talked to me about all of the possible treatments he could do, including surgery. By March 2016, I had lost total us of my right arm and it was determined that I needed surgery. Dr. Papendick detailed to me what he would be doing, including fixing anything he finds that was detailed in the MRI.   The day after my surgery (which was March 22), I had regained total use of my arm back. I could move it all around and actually grab things again. Words can't describe how ecstatic I was! To be right-arm (my dominant arm) functional again brought back my normal life again!   Dr. Papendick and all of the folks who were involved in my surgery are true angels to me. Thanks to everyone!”

“I have been going to BHOSC since 2004. My last procedure was torn rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Fromm in 2012. In between those dates, I went to BHOSC for knee, foot and hand issues. BHOSC is the best!!!! I would not go to any other place for my orthopedic needs. The staff at the front desk are efficient and courteous, the PAs and doctors thorough and prompt. I can not say enough positive things about BHOSC – I refer all of my family and friends there.”
– Penny H.

“My experience at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center was a very pleasant experience. Your facilities are very impressive beginning with the initial waiting area for sign-in. I only wish that all facilities would be so wonderful. Your staff is very helpful and courteous. Thank you for an exceptional visit.  ”
