  • We believe my mother dislocated her shoulder. What should we do?

    .A dislocated shoulder usually requires the assistance of a healthcare professional to guide the joint back into place. After the joint is realigned, a physical therapist directs the rehabilitation of the shoulder, and helps the affected individual prevent reinjury. *CAUTION: A shoulder dislocation requires immediate medical attention, especially if you experience:* - Numbness in your arm or hand - Discoloration of your arm or hand - A feeling of coldness in your arm Any of these conditions may indicate injury to a nerve or blood vessel. Seek medical help immediately. READ MORE

    Great experience .Not only is he up to date with currant technology but advises you as to what is best for your particular situation and makes you feel very comfortable and confident that he knows what he is talking about . Great guy with a kind heart. Exceptional surgeon. Had a minimally invasive L3 /L4 fusion and scoliosis correction , four years ago, and my quality of life was greatly improved and all my pain is gone.

    The unusual quality of professional procedure following and adequate diagnostic testing ,and an almost patient advocate ,empathy and heart filled approach to concerns , allows enough time for patient to relax to the point , that real painful complaints, are voiced and noted . Excessive and unnecessary procedures are to my opinion , not the tendency of this careful Orthopedic Surgeon and Gentleman .
