Patient Comments (2)

It's been 6 weeks since my total shoulder replacement surgery. Couldn't be happier at this time. The brace/sling/torture device is off and my PT has started off well. I should be back to work at my hair salon in about 2 weeks. Would I recommend Dr Wollaeger and Meriter Hospital...YES!

Dr Wollaeger performed a shoulder arthroscopy, the surgery outcome was excellent and I wish I had get it done earlier. He is an excellent surgeon, I definitely trust him to be my surgeon.
