    Dr Millett and his team were the most knowledgeable, experienced and caring that I have ever encountered. I came to Steadman Clinic with a failed Grade 5 AC joint shoulder surgery. After extensive research, I felt that Dr Millett was my only chance at getting my shoulder back. I had lost function and was in unbearable pain. The revision surgery was major, as was the rehab. The results were a complete success! I can resume all activities, with full use. I am eternally grateful to Team Millett.
