    Patient Comments (2)
    in Dillon MT |
    Had hemiarthroplasty of left shoulder done by Dr. Matsen 7 years ago. Pre-surgery had extremely limited range of motion and constant pain from arthritic degeneration. After surgery I was extremely conscientious about doing the (lengthy, rigorous and uncomfortable) rehab exercises correctly and the result has been a perfect bomb-proof left shoulder joint with no activity restrictions. Tennis, racquetball, rock climbing, kayaking, golf, wood splitting, heavy lifting all pain free.

    If you are considering shoulder surgery, there is no better doctor, in my opinion, than Dr. Matsen. He is respected nationwide and is generally considered one of the top 20 shoulder surgeons in the country. He is approachable and technical in his approach, and extremely passionate about his job. I had the Ream and Run done, and everything so far has gone exactly as planned. I would recommend Dr. Matsen to my closest friends and family with no hesitation!
