Julia Porterfield – Carpal Tunnel and Rotator Cuff (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 only difficult thing was learning to do things with my left hand (I am right-handed) while my arm was in a sling for three weeks. After three weeks, I began physical therapy. It was hard at first, but the staff encouraged me to keep working on all the exercises and it wasn’t long before I was able to move my arm without difficulty. I would highly recommend Dr. Haynes and the entire staff at OSC.
