Thankful for Surgeons like Dr. Williams

As an aging athlete now 70 years old sports was my bliss and I played many sports well and at 70 I still bike, kayak,and hike our national parks. Sadly I was also genetically predisposed to osteoarthritis. Consequently, my infrastructure is a mess having three joint replacements to date and facing a few more. I am also a patient who understands his responsibility in the treatment process and who researches the topic at hand so I know the pitfalls of any procedure beforehand shoulder replacement is no walk in the park as so much can go south in a hurry. I have been extremely fortunate in having outstanding orthopedic care that has kept me active and maintained my high quality of life. Dr. Williams is at the pinnacle of orthopedic surgeons I have had the good fortune to know. He performed a Total Shoulder Arthroplasty using the Lesser Tuberosity Osteotomy, rather than cut through the subscapular muscle he cuts it away from the bone,hence it heals like a broken bone rather then muscle. I am pleased to report I have no, nada, zero pain and 100% range of motion, an extraordinary outcome!! Dr. Williams is a patient-centered extraordinary skilled surgeon who cares deeply for his patient's wellbeing. I believe there is a special place in heaven for doctors in general and orthopedic surgeons specifically. I cannot express the gratitude I feel towards Dr Williams , after all he gave me back my arm.

Couldnt be better!

Dr Williams performed my total left shoulder replacement several years ago.. Surgery went better than I had expected. Inpatient post op care was the best Ive had because he carefully oversees details of care given. I had outpatient PT and now I have full range of motion. I can reach to the middle of my back with that hand and arm, can easily raise my hand as far up as the non-surgical side, and I rarely even think of the fact that I had the replacement done! He was very kind and personable-a real person! Highly recommend him!
