Fully Torn Rotator Cuff

The rotator cuff is made up of four different muscles and tendons near the shoulder joint, including the subscapularis, the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, and the teres minor. Together, the tendons and muscles help to support the joint, promote fluid arm movement, and enable full range of motion. There is also a fluid-filled sac in the […]

Dr. Heiden and I are from the same hometown.... Madison, WI. Matter of fact - the very same high school... We used to watch him speed skate at Vilas Park and bike race around the Square! He did an excellent job repairing my husband's medial meniscus - so much so I was jealous of his mobility... I should have used Eric for mine. I was also a patient of Dr. Dickerson - recommended by a coworker. I'm on my feet a lot and he did everything to help me relieve the pain in my fore-foot. I appreciate physicians who do everything to help you NOT have surgery - but if you need it - bring you back to optimal levels of activity. Y'all are great!

This is my second time using Dr. Dickerson and he has been great! I have referred him to family and they feel the same way. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Doctor Dickerson was so great treating me. He did ankle surgery and he did an amazing job. I highly recommend him because he is compassionate and caring. He put all my fears to rest about surgery.

Dr. Weineger not only is very knowledgeable, but he has wonderful bedside manner. I would and have recommended several family members to him and the incredible physical therapists, Amy and Sabrina, in their office!

Total Knee Replacement

A total knee replacement, or a total knee arthroplasty, involves removing damaged portions of the knee structure and replacing them with man-made prosthetics. Typically made of titanium, plastics, ceramics, or metal alloys, implants are designed to mimic the position and shape of natural bone allowing for a near normal range of motion. Common reasons for […]

The office is very accessible, the staff is warm and friendly. We have been seeing Eric Heiden for several years and highly recommend him for shoulders and knees. He and his staff are very approachable so talking to them you feel they really care.

The knee is complex structure, capable of withstanding shock and pressure and able to produce a range of motion. The meniscus is a strip of cartilage that provides a cushion between the thighbone and the shinbone. There are two menisci in each knee joint, on either side.

Athletes: Do You Need Tommy John Surgery?

The elbow is a complex structure comprised of bone, muscle, tendons, and ligaments. When something goes wrong with the ligaments and nerves in the structure, the elbow loses stability, and the speed and control in throwing is heavily impacted – and painful. An Ulnar Collateral Ligament injury is usually the result of repetitive throwing motions […]
