Medical Icon Rotator Cuff Tear
Medical Icon Rotator Cuff Repair

I am 75 years old and I live in Fayette, Alabama. I worked for 20 years in a medical supply factory and later opened my own business welding and repairing boat propellers. When growing up I enjoyed playing football, baseball, basketball and track.

Recently I was on a fishing trip to Louisiana that was planned to last 3 days. After 2 days I was in so much pain in my shoulder that I had to cancel my last day of fishing. I made an appointment with Andrews Sports Medicine to have an evaluation about helping with the pain. I received a shot in each shoulder and was pain free for a few months.

When the pain returned I went back to Andrews Clinic for an MRI. It was discovered that I had a torn rotator cuff. Dr McGough did the surgery and was great! Everyone I dealt with at Andrews was fantastic, from the front desk to the MRI staff ,to the nurses ,to the Doctors. I was told by friends that this was an extremely painful surgery and the rehab would be unbearable. I have had NO pain. My rehab has been great and I am working toward a full recovery. I am an avid fisherman and hope to be back on the water soon.

My wife had her heel reconstructed in 2014 at Andrews and it has been a positive experience for her as well. I have recommended Andrews to several friends and acquaintances needing orthopaedic services. Andrews is the best place for orthopaedic repair in the US. Thank you Dr McGough and the staff at Andrews for helping me get back to what I love.
