Dr Ducey is the Best!

Dr Ducey came highly recommended, yet far exceeded my expectations. I had been in constant shoulder pain for 18 months post injury, but when I got to Dr Ducey I instantly felt I was in the right place. Dr Ducey is knowledgeable and kind and when he stated, “You’re going to be ok” I believed that possible for the first time in a very long time. Dr Ducey did all appropriate testing, trials and referrals, then diagnosed quickly. When shoulder surgery was indicated it was scheduled in a timely manner and went extremely well. During each post-op visit Dr Ducey was more than willing to answer any questions or concerns and I never, ever felt rushed. His explanations were such that I understood the process exactly. Dr Ducey is kind, encouraging and an expert on shoulder issues. If shoulder surgery and rehab were “pleasant”, this experience was and was handled in a professional manner. Even though I had a compromised shoulder pre-surgery, now at six months post I am getting my shoulder back and able to use it again in ways I haven’t in a long time and it gets better and better as I continue to work at it! I highly recommend Dr Ducey with no reservation. He changed my life!

"Unusual Shoulder"

Had a shoulder birth injury that was operated on when I was born. Caused increasing pain & immobility for almost 70 years. Most doctors wouldn't touch it. Broke my arm twice before the surgery. Dr. Ducey performed a reverse total shoulder replacement combined with repair of the broken humerus. Dr. Ducey explained, in advance, that I would continue to have limited mobility, but that there would be reduction in pain. He was spot on regarding pain. Gone! Mobility is not bad. NEW LEASE ON LIFE!
