Rotator Cuff Tear

Rotator Cuff Tear

Keith Hall

I injured my rotator cuff for a second time. l was told by another physician that l was too old to have my rotator cuff surgically repaired. The doctor compared it to putting a new patch on a old pair of jeans.

I was put in contact with Dr. Jeffery Dugas who told me he could have my arm spinning like a propeller in about 6 months. Three  years later, I'm retired and swimming 3 -5 miles a week with no problems.

Thanks Dr. Dugas for doing an excellent job!

Dr. Steven Nichols did a fantastic job repairing my right shoulder. I had multiple tears in my rotator cuff, a tear in my bicep, plus a torn labrum. He did this arthroscopically. I was at rehab within 24 hours and was able to shower too! My physical therapists are amazed of my progress! I used 2 pain pills in the 1st 12 hours of the surgery and none after that! I am glad that I chose Andrews Sports Medicine and Dr. Steven Nichols for my surgery! Thank you Dr. Nichols!

In the fall of 2012, I began experiencing intense pain in my right shoulder. I decided to do some research online and found Dr. Lyle Cain in Birmingham.

I called and made an appointment with Dr. Cain. He performed a physical exam and suggested an MRI. After reviewing the MRI, Dr. Cain confirmed I had a tear in my right rotator cuff. Soon after, Dr. Cain performed rotator cuff repair surgery. Following months of intense rehab, the pain and discomfort were completely gone.
