Comments: After many years of shoulder problems, when I finally was told "you have no joint left", my only recourse was for a shoulder replacement. I was told my procedure would have to be a reverse shoulder replacement because of the lack of a rotator cuff. Dr. Papandrea is a shoulder specialist with much experience and my surgery was very successful. I was back to no pain and good mobility within 2 months. He is a highly skilled surgeon in my estimation along with excellent people skills and staff.
