in Weaverville, NC |
I destroyed my shoulder doing whitewater kayaking, smashed into a river bounder which dislocated my shoulder, tore my lebrum, severed (not tore, severed) my supraspinatus rotator cuff, dented my humerus and left me with a couple of bone chips floating around. It was bad. Jay West performed the surgery, and after 6 months of PT and followup exercises (I was religious about PT), I now have full strength and range of motion in that shoulder. I can't say enough good things about Dr. West. A+

Dr west performed surgery on my shoulder back in September 2016. I followed this with 8 weeks of intensive pt. I had pain and discomfort from the beginning. over the winter I tried everything to rehab it. My shoulder has limited mobility and is constantly in pain. I'm at another pt. This time for another 8 weeks. Still no success. I'm scheduled to go back to see dr west in early May. I'm concerned that he may not be able to fix it. And I'm afraid to give him the second chance.

Having just moved from Virginia, I asked friends and healthcare professionals who they recommended to repair a messed up rotator cuff. Everyone told me to go to Dr. West. Three physical Therapist told me that if I wanted good results, quick recovery time, limited pain and minimal surgical scars to go to Dr. West. The surgery was a breeze and I cant find my scars. I had minimal pain including therapy and was to 100% range of motion within 10 weeks. I was well informed of the process. Great
