Dr Adams performed a shoulder arthroscopy in 2013. I gained full function and pain relief. I began having the same type of pain in 2017. After imaging, he felt that a total shoulder replacement would be more appropriate than another scope and referred me to Kurt Bormann. I appreciate his ability to look at my case objectively and not push for a procedure he would have done. Very knowledgeable, patient, and took the time I needed for questions and concerns.
