"After many sleepless nights, I had hope again."

After the first surgical repair of my torn rotator cuff in December 2018, I tore it a second time a few months later. I had many sleepless nights after that and worried as to what options were left to fix my condition. My surgeon referred me to Dr. Kassam as a possible answer to my shoulder problem, and after my first meeting with him, I had hope again. 

The second surgery was as much of a success as I could have hoped for and what few limitations I may have are due, I think, to the mechanical aspects of the shoulder devices that are used. It's a victory for me and a testament to the skills and abilities that Dr. Kassam has as a great surgeon.

Those of us that have had Dr. Kassam as our orthopedist are lucky indeed.
