Wonderful doctor. Not only did he repair an almost completely torn labrum in my left shoulder, he also help me through via a manipulation passed a nasty frozen shoulder. A few years out and both shoulders haven't felt this great in 20 years. Great doctor!

Dr. Teja fixed a terrible labrum tear with bicep tenodesis and labral suture repair. Just three months out, I'm better than 99% of people with the same. He's awesome! Great staff and facility too.
