Whether you injured your shoulder or it simply hurts to complete everyday tasks, it's important that you visit an orthopedic surgeon. The sooner you receive care, the better chance you have at a total recovery. Yes, that means waiting too long could result in a permanent tear in your shoulder.
The Kennedy Center team of Dr. Tsai and Dr. Schaufelberger are specialists in rotator cuff repair. Our surgeons are board certified in orthopedic surgery and have years of experience successfully repairing torn rotator cuffs.
I'm 32 and have worked as a bricklayer and mason for ten years. When the pain in my shoulders kept me from working, I knew it was time to get expert help. I went to the Kennedy Center because friends and relatives recommended Dr. Tsai, who specializes in less invasive rotator cuff repair. Even though the surgery ended up being more extensive than just repairing my torn rotator cuff, I was still out of the hospital the same day and started physical therapy soon after. The whole team helped me regain my strength and confidence so I could return to work and enjoy all my outdoor activities again.
