Pain in your upper extremities can be caused by many factors, including, but not limited to:
“We all dread surgery and often feel surgeons are more like salesmen looking to cut us whether we need it or not. Dr. Tom was amazing from the get go. I had a full rotator cuff tear and bicep tear. He explained everything, he was friendly, and had an amazing sense of humor. He cares after surgery – making sure I am okay and am making progress. He is so attentive and so helpful. I dread doctors appointments, but I enjoy Dr. Tom. Thank you Dr. Tom, as I am active with my kids again.” – Eric
“Dr. Tom is a young but very knowledgeable physician. He is well versed and shows that he has much experience. His energetic and joyful demeanor is quite refreshing and my daughter and I have had nothing but great interactions with him and his staff at every visit pre/post op.” – Jan
“I would highly recommend Dr. Tom. He did shoulder replacement surgery on my mom when she was 84 years old. She has had a complete recovery and no longer has any pain in that shoulder. He continues to see her and give her Cortisone shots in her other shoulder and to follow her progress. He is a compassionate and highly qualified surgeon.” – Laurie
“Very competent and personable surgeon who is a shoulder specialist. He was very helpful in fixing my right shoulder after having dislocated it and torn several tendons and the rotator cuff. Very patient-centric and great at explaining the damages due to m fall. Highly recommend for shoulder problems.” – Eric
