I was suffering from impingement syndrome in both shoulders at the age of 55. I could no longer perform daily activities at home or any sporting activity without considerable pain. After speaking about my condition to family and friends, both recommended that I have a consultation with Orlin & Cohen, specifically Dr. Jonathan Ticker. Several friends and a relative had surgical procedures performed by Dr. Ticker and were extremely satisfied. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain so I went to see Dr. Ticker. Immediately my first impression was how concerned Dr. Ticker and his staff were about my condition.
He told me that he would like to try different approaches before surgery. We tried medication and therapy with little success, but I appreciated the fact that he wanted to try different solutions before any surgical procedure. Eventually we agreed on surgery on my right shoulder in 2011 to alleviate the impingement, bone spurs and a resection of the clavicle.
I was so impressed by everyone involved in the procedure and the eventual results that I didn't hesitate to do the same procedure on my left shoulder in 2012. And again, amazing results. I am pain free when I swim, play golf, or just do things around the house. None of these activities were possible without pain before I met with Dr. Ticker and had the surgery. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to Dr. Jonathan Ticker and staff. I consider him a brilliant surgeon and an even better person if that's possible. I would not hesitate to recommend him and Orlin & Cohen. As a matter of fact I already have.
