Nancy Walls – Reverse Shoulder Replacement

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 repair, as I had a large tear. He referred me to Dr. Martin Coleman. I went to OSC PT at that time.

I returned to Dr. Coleman in Feb. 2017, when I was ready for surgery. He did a reverse shoulder replacement on February 28. I was home and out of the sling two days later.

Both Dr. Haynes and Dr. Coleman are friendly, professional and caring doctors. I highly recommend them.
