Once you have an ortho injury you find out quickly it's best to choose someone extremely knowledgeable in that area. Combine a tiny slip with an age of 70+ and I ended up in a mess. The first ortho figured it would all work out ok but then wasn't available to help; second one recommended total shoulder replacement. Third try I found Dr Bynum. He has a great bedside manner and makes sure to answer every question you have. He saw my typed up list and took it and thoroughly discussed each option available to me. I'm so glad I trusted him. What was initially a broken humerus, torn biceps, frozen shoulder and "massive" rotator cuff tear he easily repaired through arthroscopic surgery. Dr Bynum also closely monitors your PT recovery as well and kept assuring me that "no physical therapist is ever going to hurt you or we'll get a new one". It doesn't take much to find out that too many people give you first hand accounts of their horror stories over shoulder surgeries and physical therapy. Go to Dr Bynum and it will be only good news.
Dr. Bynum is an outstanding physician! I had a torn rotator cuff and an issue with my bicep that severely restricted the range of motion of my left arm. Dr. Bynum performed surgery and fixed both problems at the same time without any issues or complications. I regained my full range of motion within 3 months and now live my life without pain or discomfort. Dr. Bynum is truly amazing!
