Shoulder Care

 

doctor testing shoulderOrthopaedic subspecialization has become an integral factor in the way we customize treatment for each patient. This is quite apparent when treating the shoulder, where the delicate balance between soft tissue tension and stability are tenuous and intimately linked to range of motion and function. In fact, the shoulder is considered by many to be the most complicated joint in the body.

Fortunately, Orthopaedic & Spine Center offers the most advanced and comprehensive diagnosis treatment for problems relating to the shoulder – from soreness caused by overhead activity to the chronic pain of rotator cuff disease or arthritis. We often use shoulder arthroscopy to evaluate the problem, with shoulder surgery being an effective way to treat the issue. Under the care and guidance of our shoulder surgeons, complex fractures and degenerative conditions are addressed using state-of-the-art reconstructive techniques. In conjunction with our team of physical therapists, our patients receive a continuum of care that is unsurpassed in this era of specialized shoulder care.

It is our reputation for incorporating excellence in orthopedics with complete, individualized care that has more patients choosing OSC for their shoulder arthroscopy and surgical needs.

What Our Patients Are Saying

5/5
  • Dr. Martin Coleman is very knowledgeable, has a lot of experience, and made me feel there was no doubt the surgery on my shoulder would be successful. It has been almost two months since my surgery and I’m already feeling better than before. Thank you, Dr. Coleman! Joseph Dotson

Joseph Dotson – Shoulder Surgery

  • I found it harder and harder to lift my right arm and use it as I needed to. After much thought as to the trade off between a poorly functioning arm and major surgery, I decided to consult with Dr. Boyd Haynes. He and his team of professionals did a thorough examination and laid out the rotator cuff surgery I would need and fully explained the recuperation processes. The surgery went well and I followed Dr. Haynes instructions for my physical therapy to the letter. I can say that… Read More

  • This is my second shoulder that Doc Martin Coleman has repaired for me and I have been thoroughly satisfied both times. William Rowe

William Rowe – Shoulder Surgery

  • Dr. Martin Coleman is an excellent surgeon. He recently replaced my shoulder with a reverse shoulder replacement. My range of motion is better than my previous replacement. The pain before the surgery was bad, but since the surgery it’s much improved. Dr. Coleman always spends time with me answering all my questions and praising my progress in physical therapy. I trust Dr. Coleman and his excellent staff. Deborah… Read More

Deborah Pack – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • My name is Catherine Reid, I would like to thank Tom Toothaker, DPT. Joshua Hancock, LPTA and Fred Wintermantel PTA, for their care doing my rehabilitation at Orthopedic & Spine Center. I was treated for pain in my left shoulder, which made it impossible to complete my normal physical duties and daily activities that I was accustomed to doing. After eight weeks of rehabilitation, I have been able to resume all my my normal activities without pain. I was made comfortable at each… Read More

Catherine Reid – Physical Therapy for Shoulder Pain

  • I am Sally Price and in 2015, I had a rotator cuff tear, expertly fixed by Dr. Martin Coleman. Three months later, I unfortunately tore it again, but this time I ruptured the shoulder. Thankfully, Dr. Coleman was able to repair it again, but told me it would take me a year to get it back to moving normally. Fortunately, I went to OSC-Physical Therapy where I received excellent care. For six months, the therapists there patiently worked with me. I especially appreciate their compassion and… Read More

Sally Price – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery and Physical Therapy

  • Because of severe osteoarthritis, I was due to have shoulder replacement in 2015; however, I had to have another operation. I kept delaying having my shoulder done as long as I could. Dr. Martin Coleman performed total shoulder replacement on April 14, 2017. It is now almost 8 weeks later and I really wish I had it done earlier. Dr. Coleman and his staff did a fantastic job. With 4 weeks of Physical Therapy, I can now raise my arm up, extend to the side, comb my hair, etc. (almost full… Read More

Ollie Tucker – Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • I just completed rehab for my right shoulder reverse replacement surgery. Dr. Martin Coleman of Orthopaedic and Spine Center (OSC) in Newport News was my surgeon. He performed a very successful surgery with very little follow-on pain. Prior to the surgery, I was in constant pain with any movement of my right arm. Sheridan (Butch) R. Barringer Newport News,… Read More

Sheridan (“Butch”) Barringer – Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • Dr. Bob Snyder did such a great job repairing my right shoulder, that I asked for him by name when I needed care for my left shoulder. I couldn’t ask for better care. He and his staff are top notch! At the moment, I can’t think of anything you can do to improve your service.  I always look forward to the complimentary hot chocolate, and the kiosk for check-in is also very nice! Phillip… Read More

Phillip Robertson – 5 Star Rating/Review for Dr. Robert Snyder

  • The first time Beverly Williams saw Dr. Coleman, she was in a wheelchair. “I was having tremendous pain in my left ankle,” she says, but that’s not why she sought care at OSC. Only in her 40s, Beverly has suffered from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis since the late eighties, so she attributed her ankle pain to RA. “I assumed it was part of the joint breaking down,” she says. It was a natural assumption: she’d already had all but one of her joints replaced – all but her left… Read More

Beverly Williams – Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • Dr. Martin Coleman has been treating me for years for bone spurs in both shoulders. My right arm finally got bad enough that we decided on surgery. So on March 19, 2021 Dr. Coleman performed surgery on my right shoulder. He found a bad bone spur, shredded tissue in the shoulder, two tears that were almost all the way through and, on top of that, had to remove part of my clavicle bone. With the wonder surgery that Dr. Coleman performed and my dedication to recovery my shoulder is doing well…. Read More

Betty Shackelford – Complex Shoulder Repair Surgery for Bone Spurs

  • Cody Leeworthy, DPT After shattering my humerus from a fall during a morning run in 2021, I received a total reverse shoulder replacement and was sent to physical therapy for rehab at OSC. Dr. Cody Leeworthy was my therapist during that time and he was extraordinary. Dr. Leeworthy was prompt, attentive, personable and showed genuine concern for my condition. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me in… Read More

Barbara Sadler – Physical Therapy for Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • Patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes Surgery in December 2013 I had pain in my right shoulder for decades as a result of playing sports in my youth. Over the past few years, it became progressively worse, and I sought out Dr. Haynes, as he was highly recommended by several people. I had surgery on my right shoulder for a completely severed rotator cuff and also for “frozen shoulder syndrome” which resulted from a lack of use. I can say that after surgery, I am now completely pain-free, and… Read More

Thomas Shelton – Shoulder (Rotator Cuff & Frozen Shoulder)

  • My right shoulder was gone and giving me a LOT of pain. After having Physical Therapy, the Doctor at OSC took a MRI of my shoulder. After reviewing the outcome of the MRI, my questions were – how do we fix this and how soon? I did not want to wait, putting off surgery would only make me older. I’m 73 and not getting any younger. That’s when the OSC staff took over and booked the surgery at the hospital. A few weeks later, Dr. Martin Coleman did a total reverse shoulder replacement. After… Read More

Reverse Shoulder Replacement – Lawrence Meyers

  •   Dr. Martin Coleman repaired my torn rotator cuff in June 2021. Traditionally, rotator cuff surgeries require 6-12 months of rehabilitation. Post surgery, I followed Dr. Coleman’s instructions to the letter. Happily, I was playing golf less than 6 months later. Dr. Coleman is a demanding surgeon who has been known to tell his patients “do not screw up my surgery”. I’m happy I followed his advice. Gregory Schulze            Make an… Read More

Gregory Schulze – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • After years of pain, I found relief after Dr. Martin Coleman replaced my shoulder with a reverse shoulder replacement surgery in 2015. Thank you, Dr. Coleman, for making me pain free and providing me with total use of my shoulder. Carroll Hunt

Carroll Hunt – Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • Thank you doesn’t begin to express how grateful I am for having the absolute BEST Physical Therapy Team in the area. Having had two rotator cuff surgeries, a shoulder manipulation, and almost 17 months of PT, I know I could not have made it through without this dedicated team. There were days I was ready to give up, but Dr. Jamie Swale and the entire team were supportive, encouraging, and I always left PT with my attitude adjusted and ready to tackle another day. I highly recommend OSC PT -… Read More

Jackie Smith – Physical Therapy for Rotator Cuff Surgeries & a Shoulder Manipulation

  • I have been suffering with shoulder problems for over 25 years. I started seeing Dr. Martin Coleman in November 2016 for an enlarged Bursa Sac. I did not want surgery, so we went through all the options, from shots to physical therapy. All helped temporally and I was good with that. Eventually, my Rotator Cuff tore and we had no other option than surgery. I had Bursa Sac Ablation and Rotator Cuff repair surgery in January of 2019. The results of the ablation were immediate. I have no more… Read More

Norman Baer – Shoulder Bursa Sac Ablation and Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • My shoulder problems started gradually and ended up limiting me to what I could do. It was keeping me from being able to kayak, swim, and do general housekeeping around our home and grounds. I consulted with Dr. Martin Coleman, who took a very matter-of-fact attitude, suggesting a plan that started with physical therapy, but could lead to surgery, if that did not work. When we reached the point of surgery being the best option, he made it very clear that he could repair the shoulder, but for… Read More

Jeff Loustaunau – Shoulder Repair Surgery

  • I had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Marty Coleman and had fantastic results. I highly recommend OSC to any of my friends dealing with problems. Thank you to all of the staff at OSC. David Heape

David Heape – Shoulder Surgery

  • I had extreme pain in my right shoulder when I first saw Dr. Martin Coleman. He told me the only real cure was to have a total shoulder replacement, since there was no repairing the tendons. I am 76 years old, but still have a lot of life in me. So, even though this seemed to be daunting, I chose to do it and the confidence and reputation of Dr. Coleman helped me make this difficult decision. The preparation was great, from the doctor\’s office to the hospital and with  Physical Therapy…. Read More

Lloyd Weddle – Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • My name is Donna and I would highly recommend Dr. Martin Coleman and this facility. They went over and beyond to accommodate my needs. They do their own x-rays, open MRI and surgeries within steps away from their offices, which is very accommodating. When you arrive you check-in with the receptionist, which has always been very friendly. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to be called back, very impressive. Dr. Coleman is very passionate about his profession and answered all my… Read More

Donna Gundersen – Shoulder Surgery

  • When I came to Dr. Coleman, I was experiencing severe pain in my right shoulder. It kept me from sleeping at night and also from carrying out many of my normal daily activities. I am right-handed, but the pain in my shoulder was turning me into a “lefty!” Dr. Coleman took x-rays and found that the joint had degenerated such that I was “bone on bone.” We tried injections but, unfortunately, that only gave me relief for about 2 weeks. Dr. Coleman had spoken with me about the injections and… Read More

Debbie Vaughan – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • I was scheduled to have Rotator Cuff surgery on my right shoulder with Dr. Boyd Haynes in September of 2016. I chose another physician and I ended up with a frozen shoulder. I moved here, from Richmond VA in 2015, with fears from another doctor in Richmond, who performed a spinal surgery wrong and I had to have a life or death revision surgery. Dr. Boyd Haynes explained to me what to expect with the frozen shoulder as he smiled with his beautiful personality. I saw him today January 27,2017… Read More

Lisa Jackson – Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

  • I’m 73 years old and, after 28 yrs. as a firefighter/ part time contractor, my right shoulder had spurs and was bone to bone. There was constant pain and I was not able to lift my arm above my head. I made an appointment with an orthopedic physician. After a MRI, his diagnosis was a shoulder replacement. I was told I would have limited motion, wouldn’t be able to shoot a shot-gun or rifle, may or may not be able to play golf, but I would not have any pain. Not being able to do the activities… Read More

William C. Trollinger, Jr. – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • If you need to have rotator cuff surgery I highly recommend Dr. Martin Coleman. I had surgery on Nov. 2, 2020. I had done my research and discovered that Dr. Coleman was the best shoulder surgeon on the Peninsula. After discussing the surgery with several of my friends that had already had rotator cuff surgery and researching the doctor they used, I knew I needed the best because “I don’t do pain” very well. I made the right choice. I have had very little pain. The first month my… Read More

Cathy Everett – Rotator Cuff Surgery

  • Ten years ago, I had to have my left shoulder, biceps, and rotator cuff operated on and I went to Dr. Martin Coleman. Not knowing what to expect, he explained to me everything by telling me what was going to be done and how I needed to rehab after the surgery. Everything went as he said and my shoulder has never been better. At that time I lived in Newport News, VA and it was easy for me to see him. Now, ten years later, I am living up in New Kent, VA, which is close to an hour away (from… Read More

Joseph Connors – Shoulder Surgery

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes for a couple of years now and cannot tell you how happy I am to have him as my doctor. I had a right hip replacement and shoulder surgery and both have made my standard of living so much better. Dr. Haynes and his entire staff are top-notch. I always come away from my appointments with all of my questions answered and a plan of care that we both agree on together. I would recommend if you are in need of orthopedic surgery of any kind, please, please,… Read More

Bonne Saum – Hip Replacement Surgery and Shoulder Surgery

  • A few years ago, my family doctor sent me to Dr. Haynes for carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery and had no problems. Therefore, after a few months when my shoulder was hurting, I went back to see Dr. Haynes. An MRI revealed a torn rotator cuff. We started with shots, but when they no longer worked, I chose to have surgery. Dr. Haynes explained what would happen during surgery. On the day of surgery, he reassured me that everything would be fine and it was. There were no complications. The… Read More

Julia Porterfield – Carpal Tunnel and Rotator Cuff (Shoulder) Surgery

  •   I have been going to OSC for about four and a half years now and and have been seen by Drs. Mcfarland, Burrow, Carlson, and Sureja. It is because I have significant damage to my joints, my muscles, my shoulders, and my back. Dr. Martin Coleman by far has been, no holds barred, hands down, blunt, to the point of what I needed to have done, and expedited getting it done for me, so I can be out of this this pain that I’m in. There was no mollycoddle, there was no dragging it out. He… Read More

Jane Stone – Shoulder Surgery

  • Dr. Martin Coleman is a very experienced surgeon. He has the experience to tell the patient what to expect and to guide the patient through the recovery process so that the recovery is complete. He is patient to listen to your questions and provide complete answers and has an understanding of what the patient will experience during recovery. I will recommend OSC and Dr. Coleman to others. Ronald… Read More

Ronald Chappell – Shoulder Surgery

  • My name is Tyler Oaks. I’m a Junior at Eastern Mennonite University and I play on the Men’s Volleyball Team. I want to share my story about shoulder surgery with Dr. Martin Coleman to help other young people, especially athletes, who may have an injury and are facing a period of uncertainty while they recover. I was fortunate and had never been injured previously.  But in my freshman year at college, my shoulder began hurting and it was affecting my volleyball.  It hurt bad enough… Read More

  • My name is Glenda Adamowski. I have been a patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes for many years. I have always had good experiences when I visit he or other doctors there. In 2011, Dr. Haynes performed rotator cuff surgery on me. The surgery was tough, but I received awesome care by Dr. Haynes and his staff. To this day, I cannot even tell that I have ever had anything done to my arm. I never expected this. It is all due to the excellent knowledge of Dr. Haynes and the awesome surgeon that he is. I… Read More

  • Dr. Jamie Swale and her assistant, Jonathan Lorusso, were very professional and thorough in their therapy and instruction. I saw them over a six week period and my shoulder pain and flexibility is much improved. Elizabeth McLane

Elizabeth McLane – Physical Therapy for Shoulder Pain

  • In 2021, Dr. Martin Coleman and I opted for a total reverse shoulder replacement after I shattered my humerus from a fall during my morning run. As he termed it, it’s a “one and done” type of procedure, eliminating the need for potential follow-up surgeries. If choosing this surgery, it’s important to note and follow Dr. Coleman’s instructions completely. Rehab was hard but worth it. After two months of physical therapy and continued exercise following that, I believe my mobility… Read More

Barbara Sadler – Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • I have nothing but good to say about OSC, I see 3 doctors there and they all are amazing! However, today I am going to tell you about my rotator cuff surgery and Dr. Martin Coleman. I went for an exam in early February. I was in a lot of pain. He took one look at me and scheduled my surgery for February 17. I went to surgery, dreading the next few months of recovery, as I had heard horror stories from a few people and I was nervous. Apparently, I had completely blown my shoulder out, which… Read More

Elizabeth Pendleton – Rotator Cuff Surgery

  • I am currently a very healthy and still somewhat athletic seventy-two year old male. All my life, from high school until today, I have been physically active in some kind of sport or work out type exercising.

John Johnson – Shoulder Surgery

  • I started with steroid injections, with a sports medicine doctor, and physical therapy exercises at home 16 years ago for my right shoulder pain. In the fall of 2016, I made an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes, with whom I had worked at RRMC PACU and who had performed carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery on me. My shoulder had gotten worse with decreased range of motion and pain limiting some of my activities. He stated that neither he nor I would be satisfied with him doing a rotator cuff… Read More

Nancy Walls – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • I had the best experience possible when having shoulder surgery several months ago. Dr. Martin Coleman did an exceptional job diagnosing my shoulder issue, and laid out a plan to fix the torn rotator cuff, including removing bone spurs. I had limited pain and discomfort after surgery, and healed quickly. Dr. Coleman’s release to physical therapy decision early contributed to a quick recovery. Within four months after surgery, I’m able to return to most physical activities. I’m very thankful for… Read More

Victor Riveras – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • I have been a competitive golfer since I was 9 years old and played golf at the University of Virginia in the 1980s. Likely, as the result of years of golf and some acute lifting injuries, I developed pain and lack of strength in my right and left shoulders at about the age of 40. It was nearly impossible to lift anything with an extended arm and golf required anti-inflammatory medication and ice. The team at OSC evaluated the situation and diagnosed the condition as a SLAP tear. As my right… Read More

Brian Killough – Shoulder Surgery

  • Dr. Martin Coleman I am a very active 63 year old man who has been experiencing pain in my left shoulder for over six years. There never seemed to be the right time for surgery. When I begin to lose  function and the pain increased I went to see orthopaedic surgeons in search for a surgical repair. After having an MRI one surgeon lectured me for waiting too long and more or less said that he would attempt to repair the three torn and retracted tendons but the repair would probably fail….

Robert Morrisette – Shoulder Surgery

  • Dr. Boyd Haynes performed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder January 5, 2017. I dreaded the surgery because I had heard the recovery process was extremely painful and uncomfortable. However, I found the recovery to be much faster and less painful than I expected. I followed Dr. Haynes’ orders to the letter, working with a Physical Therapist and exercising as directed at home. In less than two months, I had regained full range of motion with my right arm and, at this point, have very… Read More

Judy Bryan – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • Dr. Boyd Haynes performed rotator cuff surgery on the 15th of January 2015, in order to repair a 2 x 2 cm tear and while repairing the tendon, also removed bone spurs that had formed in the shoulder. The surgery was performed on an outpatient basis. I had been told by other patients that it was a very painful surgery and that the recovery would be some six months or more. One individual actually said that it was more painful and a longer recovery than that of their open heart surgery. I didn’t… Read More

Erika Mitchell – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • I am a 54 year old man that had painful shoulder problems that lasted years. I tried to work through the pain, hoping it would get better, but over time it inevitably got the best of me. I came to the surgery center after a long time of having this pain and limited movement. I ended up having tears off the bone and was told this wasn’t ever going to heal on its own. I had the necessary repairs and re-attachments done to my shoulder through surgery by Martin Coleman M.D. and He did such a… Read More

Danny Dickerson – Shoulder Repair Surgery

  • Dr. Coleman has done surgery on both of my shoulders. I had a reverse shoulder replacement in 2014 on the right, then Rotator Cuff and Bicep tear repairs the end of October 2016 on the left. He is wonderful. I followed his pre and post – op instructions as well as possible and I\’ve had no problems with either surgery. The staff is always pleasant and the office is run like a well-oiled machine. The office is always clean and nicely decorated. It houses it\’s own X-ray department and MRI, so… Read More

Pat Marchant – Reverse Shoulder Replacement, Rotator Cuff and Bicep Repair Surgery

  • My name is Teresa Sullivan. I went to see Dr. Coleman back in October 2017 because my right shoulder hurt just about every time I reached behind me and when I did ordinary things, like buckle my seat belt or get dressed in the morning. The pain wasn’t awful, but consistent.I really liked how Dr. Coleman provided options for treatment and didn’t just “jump to surgery”. After reviewing the X-ray he had ordered, he recommended an injection (can’t recall the medication, but maybe… Read More

Teresa Sullivan – Rotator Cuff Surgery

  • In January 2015, I had left shoulder replacement surgery performed by Dr. Coleman. My recovery was such, that in 10 days, I was back at work. After starting PT at the OSC office, my range of motion improved, and much of the pain subsided. My last visit with Dr. Coleman was June 24, and both he and I were very pleased with the progress I’ve made over the last 6 months. Dr. Coleman’s down-to-earth attitude and continuous encouragement were important factors in my recovery. Ann… Read More

Ann Mebert – Shoulder Replacement

  • Dear Dr. Haynes, Just wanted to send a big “Thank You” for my visit on November 25 and the attentive care I was given. I had seen another specialist in the Northern VA area that took one look at the MRI and said “you need surgery”. After another few minutes, he said, “I can have you in surgery within two weeks due to your pain.” Anytime I started to ask a question, he interrupted and provided an answer to what he thought I was going to ask. I thanked him and said I would have the… Read More

Mary Ann Elliott – Shoulder Pain

  • I have an extensive background as a collegiate and professional athlete. At 64 years old, I still compete in triathlons, cycling and swimming events. All of which require utilization of the shoulders. Over 50 years of training and competing, I totally damaged my left shoulder. I was referred to Doctor Coleman as if not one of the best, “the best” shoulder doctor and surgeon in Hampton Roads. I had major concerns about the ability to continue my life-style of training and competing. After… Read More

Alonzo Crittenden – Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

  • I originally had my right shoulder (rotator cuff) operated on by Dr. Haynes eight years ago. Because of the experience the first time, there was no question I wanted him to do my left shoulder when the time came. The surgery went very well and after only a few weeks, I was able to begin physical therapy at OSC. With the exceptional treatment of the entire staff, both the surgical team and the rehab team, every appointment there is improvement. I am very grateful for Dr. Haynes and his entire… Read More

Robert D. Copeland – Shoulder (Rotator Cuff Repair) Surgery & Physical Therapy

  • While playing golf, I noticed a recurring pain in my shoulder. It became more and more agonizing. I decided to see Dr. Martin Coleman and he ordered an MRI scan, where he found my already repaired right shoulder joint was deteriorated from arthritis . He informed me that the joint would would need a replacement.  On March 9, I had the surgery. It is now three months later and I have not had any pain since the 2nd day after surgery. I have strengthened the joint, now swing a golf club, and… Read More

Clarence Meadows – Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • On July 4, 2017, I fell off a ladder and hurt my shoulder. I guess a 60 year old should have been a little more careful. As a veteran, I was driven to the Hampton VA Medical Center by my wife. When they confirmed there were no breaks, they scheduled me to see their orthopedic doctor in the first week in August and have an MRI conducted. It was here that the VA doctor said the damage was so severe that they did not have the expertise to repair my shoulder and did I have any civilian doctors I… Read More

Robert Sullivan – Complex Shoulder Surgery

  •   I have seen several doctors at OSC over the years; most recently Dr. Martin Coleman. I was referred to him by Dr. Mark McFarland for shoulder surgery which was successfully completed. Dr. McFarland helped me with back surgeries and knee replacements.  In the past, my mother saw Dr. Raj Sureja and we both felt the same about his services and knowledge. Each experience with the Doctors at OSC has always worked out well. And any interaction with the staff there has only shown me… Read More

Richard Tindall – Physical Therapy after Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • I just finished my four months of therapy on my reverse shoulder replacement at the OSC PT office (beside the main office). I was sad to leave because the whole staff there works as a team, from the office staff Stachia and Cliff, to the doctors and physical therapists, and to the PT assistant Nneka. I was welcomed each day and the tech greeted me with genuine concern as to how I was doing. I worked mostly with Fred Wintermantle and Dr. Tom Toothaker. Both knew exactly which exercises would… Read More

Deborah Pack – Physical Therapy for Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • I want to share my experience with the Orthopaedic And Spine Center. I was ice skating late November when I fell and broke my left shoulder Humerus bone and received a large contusion of my right leg, each requiring me to go to physical therapy for a number of weeks. I can honestly say that I have never had such an experience where you felt the staff was sincerely concerned with your injuries and wanted to do all they could do to get you back into a regular routine. They understood your pain… Read More

Walter Satchell – Broken Shoulder Treatment and Physical Therapy

  • In 1999, at the age of 60, I tore a tendon in my rotator cuff while playing tennis. My children knew and recommended Dr. Haynes. I was pleased with my visit and explanation concerning the need for a repair of the tendon. Surgery resulted with a fairly long rehab period that I followed carefully. Today, 16 years later, I play tennis regularly, am active generally, and have fully recovered, free of pain for this extended time. I am grateful for the effective and caring attention Dr. Haynes has… Read More

Nancy Sandford – Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

  • I can’t stop talking about the great job Dr. Martin Coleman did when he performed a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement (Arthroplasty) on me in August, 2009. Not only was the recuperation of my left shoulder 100 times easier than when I had my right shoulder replaced in 2000, I am now back to using my shoulder the way I did before rheumatoid arthritis ate up the joint. I can reach for things now without pain, and getting dressed is no longer an agonizing chore. I also can raise both of my arms… Read More

Beverly N. Williams – Reverse Shoulder Replacement/Physical Therapy

  • Thank you, Dr. Martin Coleman, for alleviating the constant pain in my right shoulder. I had heard all the horror stories about shoulder replacement that never came to be.

Thank you. Linda… Read More

Linda Walker – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

  • I was sent to Martin R. Coleman, M.D. because of severe pain in my shoulder. I was a little apprehensive because I did not want to have surgery. Dr. Coleman eased my fear when I first met him. I had to have a Rotator Cuff Repair and yes it was painful. What I admired the most about Dr. Coleman was how straightforward he was about everything. He never beat around the bush but told me exactly what was going to happen. I felt confident with him because it was very clear to me, I, the patient… Read More
