I believe he said the type of rotator cuff tear I had was very rare at my age. He has 22 years experience and said he's never seen it like this for someone my age. In his words exactly "it's so rare I could write about it and publish it to a magazine". I'll have to ask him what makes it so rare lol.
He's had to operate on both my parents and some family friends in the past for different reasons and they all said he does excellent work, so I'm not worried about that at all. It's just going to suck because of work... I'm trying to open up a second location and this is definitely going to hinder that.
