Shoulder surgery
Dr. Szura operated on my shoulder in 2017 doing a bicep release and removing a bone spur impinging on the shoulder joint. While the recovery and PT was tough, I have to report that after a year, the shoulder was back 100%. I have had absolutely no issues and have full range of motion. I have compared notes with others who had similar surgery and they all had ROM limitations and other issues, but I doubt they followed through on the PT. The PT was painful and difficult but well worth the effort. I would exit PT soaking wet from the exercises. I put in the time and effort and worked through the pain and am back 100% after about 12 months. If you are planning similar surgery start the pain meds before the surgery. Don't wait like I did. I waited until the pain started and the meds didn't help for hours of EXCRUCIATING pain. Only needed the meds for two days and then it was tolerable. Dr. Szura did a great job!

Dr. Szura takes the time to listen and get background on your situation before offering resolutions rather than just relying on textbook responses. I am sure he has seen and heard it all multiple times but it is refreshing to feel that your experience is personalized.

This is an awesome orthopedic practice! Great customer service, professional staff, exhibited kind and caring concern. Dr. Szura is wonderful. Very concerned about the fracture and gave me options for treatment. The team did not rush me through, gave considerable time and attention to make sure my medical needs were met, and were cautious not to cause additional pain.
