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

I needed my right shoulder replaced due to pain and I couldn't use my left arm because of the pain.

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

Their professionalism but at the same time being so caring and kind like you were family. Dr. Warme and his team are the best.

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?

I have full movement and can return to doing all of my hobbies and activities.

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

Have it done, but only if you go to the UW and have the surgery performed at their Orthopaedic clinic, especially Dr. Warme and his team.

Please share any additional comments!

This was my second shoulder surgery with Dr. Warme at the UW and from the first moment I felt comfortable and could trust them completely.
