Patient Comments (3)
I came to Dr. Abboud with a failed surgery for a proximal humerus fracture where the hardware failed, the bone did not heal, I had additional bone damage and significant scar tissue. Other orthopedic surgeons recommended that I have my shoulder replaced which did not make sense to me. He recommended that I have revision surgery, bone grafting from my hip and a longer plate put on. Success! His follow up care has been excellent. Nice, humble guy. Highly recommend.

After 2 failed rotator cuff surgeries by other surgeons, Dr Abboud attempted a repair on my right shoulder. Seven months after the surgery, my shoulder is getting stronger and my therapy is progressing slowly, but it seems to have solved my problem o pain and range for the most part.
