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

I was in a barrel racing accident and broke my humerus, injured my elbow, and injured my SC joint; my elbow and SC joint requiring surgery.

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

Excellent care! Dr. Warme is very patient and a very good listener. Everything he tells you regarding expectations and outcomes is right on. There were no surprises.

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 am in the process of returning to pre-injury level. Pain free!

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

Have the surgery. The pain relief is so worth it!

Please share any additional comments!

Dr. Warme truly cares about getting you back to your life pre-injury. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without him as my physician. He is awesome!
