Patient Comments (2)
in Mandeville, LA |
Dr. Lyons repaired rotator cuff tears (one complete tear and one partial) removed some bone spurs and some arthritic damage while he was at it. His counsel was cautious and spot on. He is very experienced with this surgery. I heard many negative stories about this surgery but my experience was nothing like that. After a couple months of physical therapy I have almost all of my range of motion back and gaining strength every day.
in Destrehan, LA |
Dr. Lyons is a very good doctor. He will only do surgery as a last resort. He is and excellent Doctor. I had rotator cuff surgery and had no problems at all, but I heard horror story's from people at Therapy about other Doctors.
