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!
