I work with a lot of the Orlando surgeons , many good choices out there . One of my top picks would be Dr Barnard MD with Jewett or Dr Schwartzberb MD with Orlando orthopedic . Good luck

My right rotator cuff ruptured, tripping over a large flower pot in the dark. It was ready to do so because a bone spur had partially cut through the cuff. Recovery took months (3 with no driving). Physical therapy was essential. But it's good. The other sholder's still a bit stiff from a strain (the orthopedist looked at it, no treatment required) back in November. These things are slow. For a short term alternative, maybe a Hawaiian paipo? They're designed to be propelled almost entirely by foot power.

The problem with that though is, manhandling that stick around from the front third and nose, with your arm extended and at times you'll grab it from a position bringing your arm up even in an overextending like grasp ruining all the gradual PT gains you made. Slowly- until the pains' gone. If it hurts, don't do it

Rocket, I'm with you.

I have a partially torn rotator cuff that I can live with but wanted fixed and had been talking to Dr. Woodward. i kept putting it off and then found out he retired.



Everybody I know who he treated was really happy with the results, so am kind of bummed as have to find another recommended doc. All my ortho guys seem to be retiring!


Dr Woodward referred me to Dr Palsis, who has taken over his office.
He seems good, but not doing surgery on me, just PT for now.
