Dr. Bowman performed my daughter's ACL surgery in July 2023. This is our final post-op visit with him, as he feels my daughter has made continued progress in her recovery. He cleared her to resume soccer activities and encouraged us to contact him if we had any questions/concerns/needs in the future. Dr. Bowman provided excellent care for my daughter and is equally encouraging of her mental health as well as physical after her soccer injury.
