What People Say About Dr. Umasuthan Srikumaran, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Uma is a John's Hopkins Treasure. He was the fourth Shoulder surgeon with whom I consulted last year to remediate a combat injury. The ball was shattered, the rotator cuff torn, the cartilage eroded and the tendons and muscles seriously cut and useless. A total shoulder replacement was needed. The first three surgeons I consulted wanted no part in this surgery. Dr. Uma's skill fully repaired my shoulder, healing was swift and no pain at all today ! His back office is also terrific!

I was impressed with his thoughtful, patient approach that informed my decision for surgery. I appreciated receiving his Post-Op Surgical Procedural Notes documenting the various procedures of my surgical repair as well as his detailed Rehab Procdural notes. Both highlight his exceptional communication with his patients and the physical therapist. It is Dr. Srikumaran's professionalism, expertise, and focus on instructive care that inspired my confidence!!

Dr. Uma is amazing! When my shoulder pain and immobility began to increase, he started with a conservative approach, which I appreciated. However, as I saw no improvement, he listened carefully and gave me the alternative I chose, which was surgery. Four months later, my shoulder has full mobility, and I'm swimming and jogging again pain free. Dr. Uma's wealth of experience and trustworthiness are to be commended; I would recommend him to anyone experiencing shoulder problems.

Dr. Srikumaran has been one of the best things that has happened to me. I had been experiencing pain in my shoulder for years and had seen other doctors. I finally made the decision that this was not any quality if life. Made the call to Johns Hopkins and discovered Dr. Srikumaran. I had a total shoulder replacement and have not experienced pain since, even as I left the hospital. His expertise and bedside manner has me going back to work in two months. I sing his praises. Phenomenal!!

Dr. Uma is an amazing surgeon. He has operated on both of my shoulders....repairing one and replacing the other. Due to underlying health issues it was necessary to use a reverse joint in my situation. I couldn't have been in better hands! I am now finishing my PT and have surpassed all expectations and goals. Thank you Dr Uma, Matt, Mark, Stacy, Natasha and the incredible nurses at Howard County General Hospital!! You are the best!

Dr. Srikumaran did a reverse shoulder replacement on me. He explained my options, the reasons behind them and the procedure itself very clearly and completely. When I made my decision to have the procedure done I had complete confidence in him and his team. The result has been nothing short of fantastic. I highly recommend him. Five stars across the board.

I was referred to Dr. Srikumaran due to major shoulder pain and continuous dislocation of my left shoulder. I've seen many doctors before him and I must say, he is the first doctor in years, that is patient, understanding, caring and compassionate, about people in need of help. He took the time to explain everything from A-Z and allowed me time to ask questions without rushing me because he had other patients to see.

I was evaluated by another surgeon and told the injury to my shoulder was too great to consider repair. Follow up with Dr Srikumaran received a different opinion and I subsequently have a pain free fully functional arm. I went from excruiting pain with little hope of anything close to normal functions to immediate reduction in pain after the total reverse shoulder replacement and with continued physical therapy I will have complete ability to function. My age is 75. The man is genius!

Awesome!!! Dr. Srikumaran was very knowledgeable regarding my injury. A conservative approach initially and listened to my opinion and needs before surgery to repair my injury was pursued. The surgery was without complication and his post instructions to my physical therapists was very detailed. Great outcome!
