Playing ice hockey is my passion. You and your staff kept me in the game I love.
Arthroscopic Bankart Repair
I dislocated my shoulder years ago and have been dealing with it partially dislocating for years. Last november it dislocated to full lock and I was finally forced to talk to a doctor about it. I met with Dr. DuBois and he provided me with several options, and his own recommendation. He was very friendly, took his time to explain all my options, and answered all my questions. I chose to have the bankart repair surgery done and I'm really glad I did. Dr. DuBois gave me the run down of the surgery and was very helpful and friendly through the entire event. After the surgery he and his team provided all the necessary information and care I needed. Today my shoulder feels as good as it did before my first dislocation. It feels more stable than it has ever been and I have no pain at all. I couldn't be happier with Dr. DuBois and I highly recommend him and his team! Thank you so much!
Left Shoulder Revision to a Reverse Total Shoulder
In December 2010 I had my left shoulder replaced. The surgery went well, but during physical therapy my rotator cuff was torn off the bone. I was not able to lift my arm and I had no external rotation. Dr. DuBois did a revision surgery to a reverse total shoulder replacement. The pain level was half of my first surgery. Dr. DuBois did not send me to physical therapy. Instead he had me do therapy at home. Before my surgery, I couldn't raise my arm and touch my head. Six months after surgery I can raise my arm above my head and I have better external rotation. I am super happy now and I appreciate all that Dr. DuBois has done.
