"I finally decided to "bite the bullet" and have the surgery. Dr.
made me feel confident that surgery would go well. He had no doubts about it. And" it did go well. Surgery was performed at Arrowhead Hospital on September 16, 2014, at 7 a.m. and lasted about 1 1/2 hours. Everyone connected with the surgery took good care of me and all went very smoothly. Since I have CHF (Congestive Heart Failure), it was decided I stay overnight to be sure I would have no problems. But I didn't. Before I had the surgery, several people told me I would be in great pain, but they were wrong! For 1 1/2 days I had very slight pain in the shoulder and then after that, no pain at all. For one month following surgery, I wore a sling that was wrapped around my waist. The only time I could remove it was when I showered each day. Fortunately, the weather was warm so I wore a muumuu which made it more comfortable. I was able to work on physical therapy without pain and because of that I progressed rapidly and well. I am still undergoing PT once a week but have only a few sessions left. Dr.
was pleased with my progress and especially since I am a senior citizen. He gave me a copy of an X-
of my shoulder which impresses everyone to whom I show it. The comments I receive are: "You had that done to you?" "Is that what's in your shoulder now?" "Wow, that's amazing! How does it feel?" And I tell them, "I feel great!" I haven't heard from others who commented on how terrible I would feel. I think they're slightly embarrassed. But they don't know my doctor. He's an excellent physician.

is very good. He trys to find other solutions before going to surgery. He was able to treat my problem with a cortisone injection. About 10 years ago, he" was able to refer me to an excellent physical therapist whom improved the condition of my shoulder.

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)
Orthopedics - Shoulder & Arm

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.

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 is a terrific guy. He has great reviews, and that is why I used him. It is my 7th week, and my range of motion is pretty good. He tells you how it is, what is going to happen, he is very encouraging, and very friendly. He did a terrific job. His staff is very friendly, and if I call them, they always call back.

He is very friendly, he answers all your questions. He did an excellent job, I don't have a lot of bruising. He took me over everything, she showed me pictures post surgery, he explained what happened, and he is just very thorough. I am still in a sling, and I am in rehab, but he told me I would be. The facility is very nice, very modern, very up to date, and it is excellent. The bedside manner is excellent.

I called SP B&J the very next day and my first appointment was set immediately. I wasn't asked to wait and I wasn't told the first available appointment wasn't for 2 weeks. we've all heard that before. This is a very busy office but they have processes in place to ensure you are seen quickly, I don't think I've waited more than 10 minutes, if even that, before being seen. If you need an X

or a CT Scan, guess what, you do it right there; results are pretty much immediate. So much better than going to one doctor who sends you for diagnostics then you set another appointment and on and on. I'm more than thankful not only the amazing bed side manner provided by all the physicians & assistants, I'm thankful for the promptness at which they helped me. I and my injury were a priority. They offered the most efficient and effective solution and there were right! That's twice now that they have helped me. Two injuries and 4 doctors later and I am good as new! I suggest to anyone who has ailments, or who have yet to find pain relief, to go to SP B&J. St.

I don't think the surgery went good because I always have pain. I've been back and he has looked at it and everything looks good, and he has given me a dozen cortisone shots. He sent me to the physical therapist and he wanted me to go to his physical therapist. I think that made him mad. The physical therapist he wanted me to go with, I have had problems with my back. I healed a little bit longer than they expected me to, and the physical therapist jumped all over me and said I wasn't trying hard enough. I can't help my back. It was not healing well. I went to another physical therapist and in about a month, I healed. I'm diabetic and I don't heal fast. I think he should quit doctoring. He was never there. He always referred me to his nurse practitioner. They had a nice office environment.
