I came to HSS to determine whether or not I needed surgery. I saw two doctors and found that each felt differently as to whether or not I needed surgery. I also went for a third recommendation from a PT--a director at another well-known institution. Since I also know that surgeries in the past have always been difficult for me-I decided that this time I would do without it. I went for outpatient rehab and have full strength and range of motion in the formerly affected shoulder. I made the right choice for me and HSS helped me get to it. I am very thankful for that.
