Although there is lots of therapy required to regain full motion range after shoulder replacement, I now have a very good range of motion and have been pain free for four or so years. What a relief after suffering progressive loss of motion for years before that. Thank you Dr. Rama.

I'm a professional healthcare quality assurance/quality improvement director so I know what quality looks like. I was pleased with every aspect of the care from the first visit through post op visits. Look no further if you want a compassionate, qualified knowledgeable MD.
