Armstrong County is lucky to have such a gifted physician. He's done rotator cuff surgery on one shoulder and shoulder replacement on the other. It is so nice to be pain free, finally. I like to get feedback from physical therapists because they see the orthopedic patients for a lot of time post surgery.
