70-Year-Old Man Enjoys Return of Function Two Years After Rotator Cuff Surgery

I am extremely pleased with Dr. Cole and surgery. I can actually throw overhand for my dog better than before the injury. ATI Physical Therapy also contributed greatly to my recovery.

The only difficulty I have is lifting a glass to my mouth with my elbow tucked close to my body and lifting a gallon of milk straight-armed to eye level. I am certain that further PT on my part would correct that problem.

I am playing golf as well as ever. I am not driving the ball quite as far as before, but then I am not as young as before either.
