Dr. Abbott is not only a great surgeon but also a great educator of his patients. I recently had rotator cuff surgery, a surgery no one wants to ever endure. There are a lot of orthopedic surgeons who are good practitioners but I have never met one with this kind of true commitment to his patient's education and well being.
