“Dr. McDowell did a reverse shoulder replacement on my left shoulder on Feb. 18th. I feel as if I fully recovered. I occasionally get a twinge at the end of the motion, but I'm not concerned with that as I have a full range of motion. Very pleased with my outcome. Dr. McDowell did an excellent job.”
– Stan R.
