Rotator Cuff Repair Post Operative Instructions – Communication is crucial!!

Patients often feel stressed while at the doctor and do not “hear” everything that is said.  Following the appropriate restrictions are essential to an optimal outcome.  I have found that despite specific and precise instructions, patients do not always remember all that was said during their appointment. In an effort to minimize any “misunderstanding”, I have developed post-operative instructions sheets to be given to the patients at their immediate post-op appointment and their 6-week post-operative appointment.  Please click on the links below to view these documents.
