Left Shoulder Replacement

My shoulder injury occurred in May of 1971. I was attempting to slide into home plate, the attempt was stopped abruptly by a 250lb catcher. Not only did I dislocate my shoulder I was called out on the play. In the last 37 years I underwent 3 surgeries and numerous cortisone injections. Now I was left with a shoulder full of arthritis. At the time I was seeing an excellent orthopedic surgeon who said to me you need to see a "shoulder guy" and I know the best one, Dr. DuBois.

Dr. DuBois replaced my left shoulder on 5/5/09. It has been a complete success. I believe Dr. DuBois to be a sincere positive and genuine guy. He is exceptional at explaining your present condition, what he plans to do to correct it, and what kind of results you can look forward to. You sense the confidence he has in his own abilities. His staff is a extension of himself so your needs are taken care of promptly, courteously, and professionally. If you need surgery you need to look no further.

Total Shoulder Reverse

Three years ago when I first met Dr. DuBois I could not raise my right arm above my chest, and that was with extreme pain. He explained to me what had happened with my completely separated rotator cuff and that there was a procedure to repair it. The operation went exactly as he had described it to me, the recovery time and therapy went by very quickly and I do not remember being in very much pain, certainly not after the first few days. I would say that I have regained 99% of the use of my right arm since the operation. I never experience any pain in my right shoulder and I sometimes have to remind myself that I had the surgery. Dr. DuBois is one of the very highest level of professional people that I have met, but he is also extremely cordial and personable. Thank You Dr. DuBois, and all of your staff.
