Doctor: Winston J. Warme, MD

Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

Had severe pain in the right shoulder with very limited range of motion.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

Everyone was always friendly and caring. When explaining information they were thorough and helpful in the P.T.

What can you do now that you could not do before surgery? Have you been able to return to your hobbies or sports at the same level as pre-injury or at an even higher level?

At 83 years and with a body full of arthritis, I was not very active in any way.

What advice would you like to share with a patient with a condition such as yours who is considering surgery?

Go for it, especially if you are young, but even as you get older, the lack of pain and definite improvement is worth it.
