As one of the most flexible joints in our body, the shoulder is hugely susceptible to injuries that can severely impact the person’s lifestyle.

People who perform repetitive lifting or overhead activities, and activities that put the shoulder under constant pressure, are at risk of developing two or more conditions at the same time.

Mabel Albino, a charming lady who has been our patient for several years, visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care due to agonizing pain in her shoulder that caused limited range of motions, weakness in the shoulder, and crackling sensation while rotating the arm.

Because of the severity of her condition, she was immediately scheduled for an appointment with Dr. Armin Tehrany, one of the top New York shoulder doctors. During the initial appointment, Dr. Tehrany thoroughly examined Mabel, and shortly after analyzing her symptoms, he formed one complex diagnosis. According to his pre-op diagnosis, Mabel had suffered a rotator cuff tear, impingement of the left shoulder, and a biceps tear.

The complexity of the condition required immediate medical treatment, and unfortunately, it had to be a combination of three surgical procedures. Dr. Tehrany, together with his skilled assistant, performed Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair, Subacromial Decompression, and Biceps Tenotomy.

Mabel tolerated the surgery extremely well, and she started the recovery period with strength and lots of positive energy. The recovery period was successful, and Mabel was able to quickly feel strong and energized to continue with her everyday activities.

Since she had the best surgical experience that a patient can ask for, Mabel decided to spread the good words on Yelp and praise Dr. Tehrany and his team. She expressed her gratitude with the words that have profoundly inspired us to continue providing superb orthopedic care.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Tehrany for several years and I wouldn’t think of going to anyone else!!  Dr. Tehrany and his staff are professional, courteous, and friendly.  If you need an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation or surgery, go see Dr. Tehrany. He is truly the best!”
