Left shoulder rotator cuff surgery with skin allograft performed 9/2008 by Dr. Stephen Snyder with excellent results. Right rotator cuff surgery with skin allograft, and reattaching of tendon to the bone was performed 14 days ago, April, 2019. All seems to be going well at this time, however Dr.Snyder told me that it was an extensive surgery, and the recovery time would be lengthy.

Dr. Snyder & his team inspire confidence in their patients and their caring & concerned attitude is very reassuring. They take their time explaining in detail the surgical procedures & answering any questions. Post surgery I received emails everyday with reminders of what to do & what to expect & although this is a long & difficult process Dr. Snyder & his team guided the process in the best way possible way. They provided immediate responses to all of my questions. I am very happy I chose them.

Dr Snyder has 5 star bedside manor. His concern for my best results comes across clear. The system whereas I am checked on thru email daily, recommending exercise along with writing a request and having Doctors follow up to answer my questions. Gave me feeling I was being watched over. I will definitely recommend SOCI
