Dr Kirby did both of my rotator cuff surgeries. He has a great bedside manner and is very professional.

Was told that therapy is bad surgery is not an option and that we should go back to work don't see any doctors or therapy because it would be a waste of time. That in 2 to 3 years it will heal itself. Wow

I had a surgery performed by Dr. Kirby seven years ago. Before the surgery my shoulder was in pain for over 2 years. Unfortunately the cat scans and MRI's did not show what was wrong. I saw Dr. Kirby and one of the things I liked about him besides his knowledge and bedside manner was the fact that he never once pushed doing a surgery. I finally had him do it and he ended up repairing a torn rotator cuff that was a good as new in 5 months. He's the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
