What People Say About Dr. Erik Dorf, MD
Reply
Dr. Dorf did my shoulder surgery and my husbands elbow, both had 100% recovery. Everyone told me that my shoulder would be terrible as far as recovery. I had hardly any pain, and with PT went back to teaching middle school science 2 weeks after (had sub scapular fixed, rotator cuff, and bicep tendon, so it was an open incision). My husbands elbow was very difficult as he had completely torn his tricep tendon, so Dr. Dorf had to fashion a new one with using a donor heal and Achilles tendon.
