"I had been told by two doctors that I couldn't possibly have a rotator cuff tear -- I had too much strength and not enough pain to indicate a tear. However, after four months of" treating my shoulder for impingement with no results, I visited Dr. Belfie. In our initial consult, Dr. Belfie was patient and friendly. He talked to me about treatment, used both my x-rays and his model shoulder to fully explain all the variables, and answered all the questions I had. I never felt rushed, and I never felt like he was pushing surgery. (In fact, he discouraged surgery unless absolutely necessary, citing the very long and difficult recovery process.) After an MRI revealed my tear, Dr. Belfie again spent as long as I wanted discussing treatment options, and cautioning me against making a decision on surgery too hastily. He warned me in very detailed terms that recovery would be burdensome and that failure to adhere to physical therapy and immobilizaiton guidelines would jeopardize recovery and increase the risk of reinjury. The entire
team went out of their way to make me comfortable during the surgical process. Dr. Belfie met with my wife and me before surgery, and then with my wife after surgery (so she tells me). He took digital photos of my surgical site at varying stages of the surgery, and he talked it through with my wife. (We got to keep the photos.) Once I awakened, I had plenty of time to ask any questions. In each of my follow up appointments, Dr. Belfie has been patient, caring, and informative. He listens well and provides thorough information in response to all my questions. I couldn't be more satisfied with my care, and I recommend Dr. Belfie without reservation.

"My surgery went as good as could be. There were no problems during the surgery or after, outside of the pain associated with having a major surgery. Dr.
told" me that I would be back out on the volleyball court within about 8-10 months. Between the surgery and the excellent physcial therapy I had, I was back out playing lightly within 4 months and back to swinging 100% without fear of my shoulder getting damaged within 6 months. It has now been a year and my shoulder is 100% and I have no regrets.

"Dr.
is very knowledgeable and personable. He takes time in his consultations and answers all my questions patiently. He helped me to prepare myself for the procedures" I had. I have been visiting the practice for the last 5 years and will continue to use the same in future.

Shoulder and arm orthopedics

Some orthopedic doctors specialize in the treatment of ailments affecting the musculoskeletal system of the shoulders and arms, including inflammation, fractures, tears, injuries and diseases.

Unfortunately, many people underestimate the severity of an injury to their biceps tendon and delay seeking treatment. (Photo by The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group)

Knowing how to tell "it's just a sprain" from a serious biceps tendon tear can mean the difference between a successful surgery and lasting arm muscle weakness.

Besides cortisone shots, other treatments for shoulder pain are available, including anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy, says Frisella. (Photo by Kiel Hauck)

Inflammation is the root cause of many problems that affect the shoulder while resting. Inflammation can result from several different underlying problems.

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
 
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

He performed a rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder. My last visit was post surgery check up. My shoulder is perfect now. He is specializes in shoulder surgery. He has a terrific reputation. I experienced that he is an excellent surgeon. He is very excited about his work. He has a very nice bedside manner. He is a good listener. I wait at the most for 10 minutes in his office.
