Patient Testimonials

“Life before surgery was horrible. I injured my shoulder 20 years ago playing hockey and had to completely reshape my daily routine because of it. Threading my belt through my pant loops each morning was a major challenge for me.

My recovery after surgery was everything I could have hoped for. I started by doing physical therapy twice a day in the hospital, then once a week for eight weeks, then no therapy at all. After dealing with the discomfort of my shoulder for over two decades, I was familiar with pain. Following the surgery, I only needed pain medication for two weeks. That was remarkable.

Deciding to have the surgery was an entire lifestyle change. I have more range of my motion with my left [repaired] shoulder than I do with my right one now. Don’t be afraid to make that appointment and talk to the doctor about your injury. You will spend more time and pain thinking about it than having the procedure done. I wouldn't wait 20 years this time.”
