This is not something I typically do. Writing reviews specifically, but even more-so taking time to handwrite the review/“Thank you”. I felt compelled to depart from my “norms” because of the life I have been able to live following my shoulder procedure performed by Dr. Kevin Murphy.
My shouder has been injured dating back to 8th grade. I have a hard time, or at least I had a hard time remembering a time I was not in pain or hindered significantly by this injury. In 2008-2009 (ish) I had my first SLAP repair. I didnt really know what to expect from the procedure. My shoulder had felt so terrible for so long that any improvement would be viewed as a win, and following the surgery and PT it was improved… though by how much is difficult to say.
(Fast forward 14 years)
Dr. Murphy was referred by a mutual friend and colleague as “The Guy” to talk to about my now worse than ever shoulder. I couldn’t gold, play catch/throw a ball, swim, even the “jolting” of a run would make my shoulder ache. I started with cortisone shots, but Dr. Murphy told me that he couldn’t give me enough of them to really help anything. Surgery was the course of action. I was hesitant. Shoulder surgery isn’t a picnic. Losing the power of your right arm is significant for the amount of time and there are no guarantees about the resolt. I could be worse off than I was!! Long story short, less long — I feel great, my shoulder feels great and I am BACK! Coaching/playing baseball, golfing, running, everything! Thank you for taking my “case” Dr. Murphy is “The Guy”!!
