Rotator Cuff Repair

Performed By

Ryan Krochak, M.D.

Request an appointment

I suffered a complete tear of my rotator cuff in my dominant shoulder.  As soon as it happened, I knew it was serious.  I visited the Orlin & Cohen Urgent Care that same day and was seen immediately.  Upon hearing my description of what happened and a quick examination, it was determined it was a rotator cuff injury, but an MRI was needed to detail the extent of the injury.  During my follow-up visit, Dr. Krochak stated I had a complete tear of my rotator cuff and I would require surgery to repair it.  Dr. Krochak explained what it would entail, made me feel comfortable, and surgery was scheduled.

I had never had surgery before and did not know what to expect.  Dr. Krochak and his staff made me feel very comfortable and confident.  Surgery was not a problem and I went home the same day soon after it was over without pain.

The Orlin & Cohen Physical Therapy Group was also exceptional as they treated me and brought me back to near full strength.  It wasn’t easy, as it took a lot of determination and focus, but I can tell you I am very satisfied with the results.

As stated above, I never had surgery before and did not know what to expect, but I could not have hoped for anything better.  My surgically repaired shoulder feels great and I have full range of motion.  In fact, it feels much better than my other shoulder.

I would highly recommend Dr. Krochak for this surgery and for any other shoulder or knee problems.  Thank you Dr. Krochak!
