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

Torn labrum

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

He has an amazing bedside manner and the ability to describe exactly how he repaired my shoulder in terms I understood.

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'm back at the gym and able to begin lifting weights again. As this is my first season post surgery, Dr. Warme advised against snowboarding so I have been focused on strengthening my shoulder, so I can go up as if I never had this injury.

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

The surgery was painless. Be patient with the recovery as it will help you heal and be much better in the several years to come.
