Shoulder Replacement at age 72
I was experiencing continual pain in a shoulder caused by a degenerative shoulder joint from arthritis. After a year or more of treatment directed by both Dr. Hanson and Dr. Norris, I opted for a complete shoulder replacement at age 72. Dr. Norris performed my surgery March 11, 2014. At my six week recheck, I was released from Dr. Norris and from therapy. Being a goer and doer, I am able to do all I need to do to maintain my home and farmstead. I received thorough information before and after surgery. I’ve been blessed with a healing body and a good surgeon. I expect to have the second shoulder joint replaced and will so with no reservation.
