Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Abeln performed Labrum repair surgery on my right shoulder in March 2015. It has since healed well, and I am able to play sports again (baseball, softball, basketball, etc.) He is very knowledgable in the Orthopedic field and will explain exactly what he will do during the procedure.
