Best shoulder surgeon in this area by far...I had a torn rotator cuff tendon and bone spurs in my left shoulder and Dr Heis did surgery on me on August 1st and now its September 3rd only a month later and according to my physical theripist I already have full range of motion in my shoulder.I highly reccomend Dr Heis if you need any kind of shoulder repair.

I had a rotator cuff tear with bone spurs and Dr Heis did my surgery on August 1st and did an excellent job repairing everything and now its September 3rd and my physical therapist says I already have full range of motion in my shoulder and should make a full recovery pretty quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Heis if you're needing any shoulder repair.
