I was nervous at first everyone said shoulder surgery is the most painful surgery you can have, but I had no choice, I was in constant pain all the time anyway. So I tell this, if you EVER need shoulder surgery you must go to Dr. Karzel. He is the best in his chosen profession, I am so blessed I had a wonderful Dr. that referred me to such an excellent surgeon. He is kind, caring and very concerned about patients plus the the fact it didn't hurt as much as everyone said, which was nice.
