I'm a 53 year old self employed master craftsman and had suffered what could have been a career ending injury. A right shoulder dislocation, full rotator cuff tear, worst of all a multiple glenoid socket fracture. Dr. Lederman was honest and said I had a very sever injury and that even if the surgery was successful I may only have 70% use of my arm. Not only was the surgery successful but thanks to intensive therapy I have regained 93% use of my shoulder. He literally gave me my livelihood back

I am a physician and surgeon who after careful research within the medical community chose Dr. Lederman to perform my surgery. I was told he would operate only if it was the truly appropriate choice and found this to be true through my discussions with him and through his actions. After a trial of physical therapy designed to help improve my condition and give me a better outcome once surgery was done, we proceeded to surgery. The outcome was fantastic so I could return to work as a surgeon!
