Nicholas L. Strasser MD
Surgical and Nonsurgical Hip, Knee, Foot & Ankle
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Strasser.
“I was involved in a motorcycle crash that left my right foot crushed. After a series of operations and physical therapy, I am now back to walking normally with few limitations. In my view, Dr. Strasser, along with assistance of other doctors and medical staff at Slocum did an excellent job repairing the damage to my foot in a caring and thoughtful manner. Everyone at Slocum are consummate professionals and caring health care providers. And yes, on December 25th I was back to riding my motorcycle!”

“A severe fall last summer left me with a bilateral quadriceps tendon rupture which left me without the use of my legs. Since I live in Bandon, it took some serious strategizing just to get me to Eugene for an examination and then surgery. Dr. Strasser and his staff recognized the severity of the injury and the need to repair the ruptures as quickly as possible. Thankfully, I was in surgery one week after the fall. Needless to say, losing the use of one's legs is traumatic enough by itself without the added fear that the loss will be permanent. Receiving calm assurance from Dr. Strasser that this was a temporary injury that could be surgically repaired kept me calm and hopeful. He gave a clear and confident explanation of the procedure he would perform and the rehabilitation protocol I must follow precisely, letting me know the hard work and patience that was going to be required of me. During the rehabilitation process I occasionally had concerns/questions about what I was experiencing. Dr. Strasser and his staff got back to me quickly with clear explanations for what we going on in my legs. Now, 8 months following surgery, I am still on the path to recovery which, while slower than I would like, is just what he told me would be happening. Having been given the expectations for full recovery has given me the confidence to work hard with optimism and faith in my future mobility and return to the outdoor adventure life I have lived.”
– William S.
“I am so grateful for having Dr Strasser as my surgeon. He always listens to what my concerns are and has been very encouraging with my recovery and what my expectations are for it. He has continued to prescribe physical therapy which has been a huge benefit for a positive outcome to my continued healing and the recovery of my physical abilities. Not only very professional, Dr Strasser is very kind and compassionate. We are extremely lucky to have surgeons like him available in this community that can preform complex procedures to help patients rehabilitate and regain their mobility. I have complete confidence in Dr Strasser and I can highly recommend his services to my friends and family members.”
– Janet S.
“Very satisfied with my experience and treatment with Dr. Strasser.”
– Keith B.
“My Provider always to the took the time to listen to my concerns and needs. He expressed empathy where needed as I traversed the long process of recovery from my injury. I always felt confident in the quality of care I have received. Other medical professionals have told me that not only am I lucky to still have my foot, but also that I have my surgeon to thank for the extent of mobility that has been preserved. I feel both fortunate and grateful to have found myself placed in his care.”
– Jordan G.
“My Care was excellent and I am in allot less pain and able to accomplish more. Thank you Dr Strasser”
– Daniel B.
“Dr. Strasser listens to your needs, what you have been thru, and the pain your in right now. After bone removal in right ankle and a complete collapse, an ankle replacement was next. After that success, I was still in some pain, but isolated. Dr. Strasberg and myself figured out the final cleanup. Finally after 3 surgeries in 4 years, I am bone pain free, back to work and enjoying life again. Thank you Dr. Nick Strasser.”
– Aaron C.
“Dr. Strasser performed an Ankle Replacement and did a great job. Before I could hardly walk and now I usually walk without pain. Not always but still healing and trying to lose weight so fluids and all that can diminish and make getting around easier. Doc Strasser was careful to explain all the steps along the way. I see him again this month and then in a year from this last appointment. By the way, Carly was also gentle and took care to explain what was happening with me as I progressed. Kudos to Dr Strasser and Carly!”
– Williambill W.
“I would recommend Dr. Strasser for anyone medical needs. I needed a right lower limb amputation. He and his staff were compassionate, kind and kept my anxiety at ease. I had several complications and Dr. Strasser treated them quickly and with confidence. I always felt in was in great hands. He and his team have helped me adjust to my new way of life. I am so glad he was recommended to me.”
– Donna L.

“Very experienced and friendly people at Slocum. Dr. Strasser is very nice. I had surgery right below my left ankle. I was on my feet less than six weeks. It was that amazing because everyone in Slocum Center treated me so well. Thank you very much for your kind support.”
– Tejal P.
“My Worries, that I needed surgery, and post op recovery, were gone from the very start when he told me that extensive physical therapy would be the first order treatment. I used Aqua Pool Therapy 3 times a week for 6 weeks, and saw virtually 100% pain relief. I am continuing aqua therapy, 2 times a week, to continue rebuilding the muscle tone of my hip, and over all body as well. I am very happy with the results, as well as the very good "bedside manner" he had, I felt he was dedicated to me as my doctor, even though it was my first appointment. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his care.”
– Phillip J.
“I waited far too long to have my ankle replaced because of a couple of very poor outcomes from surgeries much less complicated. From beginning to end, through my initial doubts and then my second opinion in another city, I was treated with nothing less than complete kindness and respect. Every single person who assisted me made me want to listen to their every word so I could heal and return to my life as quickly as possible. Here it is nearly 7 months later and my ankle is still pain free and I'm able to move about like I haven't for nearly a decade. Dr. Strasser himself is the most knowledgeable ortho I've seen and he communicates warmly but honestly, succinctly but clearly. He is truly one of a kind. I have used his name, and Slocum's name, many times as others have remarked on my "miracle bionic ankle" and how quickly I healed and returned to work.”
– Margaret M.
“I had a total knee replacement. Dr. Strasser was everything I would hope for in a physician....professional, caring, knowledgeable, and kind. I can't say enough good things about him. My knee replacement went smoothly, and I healed quicker than I imagined. No problems. Christie in physical therapy was wonderful, encouraged me to press harder to get my mobility back in such a nice way. My experience was so positive, that I would highly recommend Slocum to all.”
– Barbara M.
