Dr. Port is an exceptional shoulder surgeon. He explains injuries clearly and allows time for conservative healing if able. He explains the fact that many shoulder tears take a long time to heal and physical therapy is painful and timely. I had a fracture and rotator tendon tear and regained full flexibility in a few months. Dr. Port also gives patients photos of your arthroscopic surgery to explain the repair. He is awesome and I am grateful to him:)
