Weston, FL – Weston Medical Health Center healthcare professionals say “hold the phone” before you or a loved one agrees to go under the knife for rotator cuff surgery.
“We’ve successfully treated many people who were made to believe that it was essential for them to have an invasive rotator cuff surgery,” Weston Medical Health Center Dr. Dennis Spoonhour said. “This is simply not the case. We can work with you to develop a plan to strengthen the muscles around the injured area while it heals. This is, by far, the best approach.”
Having an expensive, painful surgery often is not your only option. Even professional athletes have managed to compete with torn rotator cuffs. Major League baseball pitcher Todd Stottlemyer worked to strengthen the supporting muscles in his right shoulder and actually pitched in the postseason playoffs, back in the 1990’s. And most of us are unlikely to put that kind of pressure on our rotator cuffs in our everyday lives. So before having surgery dictated to you, it’s advisable to seek another opinion before agreeing to it.
“At Weston Medical Health Center, we believe that our patients should be part of the treatment plan,” Dr. Spoonhour said. “In my years of treating patients, physical medicine and rehabilitation is often the best approach.”
Weston Medical Health providers also handle other shoulder issues such as biceps tendonitis and chronic Glenohumeral.
