Dr. Miller: Shoulder Replacement

Over years of playing tennis and abusing my shoulder in ways I wasn’t aware of, the cartilage in my shoulder joint wore away and I was living with a painful bone-on-bone condition. I eventually went to have it checked out two years ago, but I didn’t want to go through the ordeal of a shoulder replacement. I stopped playing tennis and more and more the pain interfered with my life.  I finally decided to let Dr. Miller do the surgery and I am so glad I did.  The whole experience was so much better than I could have ever possibly expected.  Dr. Miller has a tremendous amount of humanity and compassion. I don’t know if it’s possible to give a person more credit. Dr. Miller said I could be playing tennis in a month, and even serving the ball the month after.  Knowing what I know now, I should have had this done years ago.
