in Watertown, MA |
I started seeing Dr. Donahue back in 2014 for severe pain in my left shoulder area. I was subsequently diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome and had a cervical rib resection with a scalenectomy. My recovery was long but the pain was relieved to a degree. In 2016 I had a follow-up surgery called a PMT (pectoralis minor tenotomony) to relieve additional pressure. Dr. Donahue is an amazing surgeon and has answered every question I have about my condition with caring and kindness.

The very best doctor I have ever dealt with. Incredibly professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and HIGHLY SKILLED. We put so much faith into Dr. Donahue to perform a delicate and complicated surgery on our 15 year old son. Dr. Donahue exceeded every expectation. Our son recovered quickly and is now 100% healed up and back to doing what he loves to do. Thank you!
