  Anyone? I just had surgery last year from a big name surgeon. I really fell for his god complex thst I mistook for charm snd confidence. It was the wrong surgery and Iíve wasted a year and am worse off. Iím starting to feel after 3 different diagnosis that these doctors donít really know what theyíre doing so much. I dunno. But Iím trying to rack up good recommendations. Thanks in advance.

Where are you located?

EDIT: Saw this in "latest discussions" at first, now I see this is in the the "city of Boston" section. I'm not too familiar with surgeons in Boston, but I worked as a surgical coordinator/surgeon liaison for awhile in the Tri-State area. So if you're willing to travel....

What surgery is it?  Dislocation, rotator cuff, etc?

I had my dislocation surgery in Philadelphia.  Everything went great.  The pain and initial recovery was way less than expected.  I kind of half-assed it with follow up PT.  As such, I lost quite a bit of strength in terms of weight lifting, etc.  Overall, though, it was quite successful.

Good luck in surgery tomorrow, 2021.

Both of my parents had rotator cuff surgery. My father had the procedure on both shoulders  years apart and he saw the same Surgeon at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA each time.  My
Mother had her right shoulder done by a surgeon out of Beth Israel. Will try to get the surgeon names. Both had excellent experiences and 80%+ range of motion back after a year.

For Celtics2021, stay on top of the the pain meds. Once the nerve block wears off, the pain is going to be bad. set an alarm so you donít forget a dose. If you do, you will regret it. Pain was pretty bad for the first 2-3 days for both of my parents and then it was more manageable after that. The cold water therapy pad in my last post was a huge help for them. Also, have to be super careful for the first 6 months or you can risk re-tearing the shoulder. Seems to take about a year/year and a half to fully heal.

   Iíve had one doc say itís rotator, other days itís bicep tendon only and the one I had the failed surgery they shaved down my labrum and cleaned out bursa. I really think because I was the last surgery of the day he just did a minimal thing knowing it wouldnít help .
  If anyone goes to a particular doctor and he swears a lot and be your buddy and seems veeeery concedes DONíT go to this guy. His boa****lness is like nothing youíll ever see and I fell for it because he used to handle multi million dollar athletes. But very dishonest snd I should have read the reviews better.

   One more question guys? Why would someone NOT get a 2nd opinion from same practice? Obvious reason is theyíd confer snd not want to go against the other right? Dishonesty potentially,  right?

I had shoulder surgery done in 2000 for chronic dislocation issues.  I went to Access Sports Medicine in Exeter NH, had Dr. Josh Siegel.  He was fantastic and my shoulder was rock solid until a skiing accident 14 years later.
