"I was exercising in accordance to my department's policy and while performing a bench press, I felt and heard a popping sensation in my left shoulder followed by immense pain and swelling.

"Dr. Maalouf is an excellent physician and one of the most compassionate individuals I have encountered at HSS. I was an international patient and met Dr. Maalouf prior to my surgery. "
