At Mayo Clinic in 2017 I had a right neck dissection by Dr Young. He damaged a nerve which controls the muscle that controls my shoulder blade so that my shoulder blade is out of place. I am therefore handicapped and cannot raise my arm above shoulder level. This was not an expected result. I was told that I might not be able to shrug my shoulder but i can. I was never told that i might be handicapped. This is a permanent damage.

Dr. Young spent so much time with me in my initial consultation. He listened and answered all of my questions. He performed surgery and thankfully I was in minimal pain after and he did a wonderful job closing my wound and making it appear as aesthetically pleasing as possible. He understood my concerns as a younger woman and the possibility of a large visible scar. I am so thankful he is a part of my healthcare team and I really trust him. He returned calls promptly and is very personable.
