Each year, orthopedic sports injuries occur with a significant frequency and require immediate and appropriate medical attention.
The majority of those injuries are not life-threatening, however, if not addressed by an orthopedic doctor immediately, they can develop into more severe and complex conditions.
Kevin was an active person. He enjoyed his sports activities until he started experiencing pain in his arm followed by discomfort and limited range of motions. Moreover, after his sports injury, he experienced a very unfortunate accident that worsened his condition.
After he met with Dr. Armin Tehrany, a top New York orthopedic surgeon, Kevin felt immediate relief as a result of Dr. Tehrany’s professionalism, knowledge and confidence.
Together they both went through the available treatment options for Kevin’s shoulder and decided to proceed with surgical treatment, shoulder surgery, that will address his posterior rotator cuff tear, bankart impingement, and AC arthropathy.
Unfortunately, during shoulder surgery, Dr. Tehrany discovered a few more issues that required immediate attention. With the help of his fantastically skilled team of physician associates, Dr. Tehrany managed to repair Kevin’s shoulder with one surgery.
Now, after the extensive recovery period, Kevin is almost back to his normal every-day activities. Grateful for Dr. Tehrany’s care, Kevin is happy to share his experience through a video that clearly shows his exuberance to enjoy a pain-free life again.
Kevin: I came in with some pain from a sports injury, I actually got hit by a school bus afterward and it made it a little bit worse. I came in with pain and I couldn’t lift my arm. Dr. Tehrany assessed the initial damage and we were able to come up with a solution.
I’m almost back to a full range of motion at this point. The surgery was successful, I’m pretty pain-free and happy to be getting back to normal.
Dr. Tehrany: Yes, the key is to finish with the physical therapy to try to get yourself the full range of motion pain-free and with good strength.
Kevin: Absolutely. I couldn’t be happier. It was a very easy process and I appreciate the TLC.
Dr. Tehrany: My pleasure. Thanks a lot.
