Shoulder surgery doc

Can anybody who has had their shoulder patched up offer some beta on a good doc? The shiznat keeps popping out on me and I am tired of not being able to lift my arm above my chest.

I'm in the market for a good surgeon and my insurance covers a wide range of orthos is Fort Collins, Boulder, Denver and beyond.

Just looking for the best I can get since I get a choice.

Check out Dr. Abbott or Dr. Cunningham up in Vail/Summit. Those guys are the best thing out there for shoulders. Steadman is good, but good luck getting in to see him, and he mostly does knees.

I will second Dr. Abbot. I haven't had any trouble with mine since.

I'd recommend:

David Grauer, MD Orth Surg
1155 Alpine Ave
Boulder, CO 80304
(303) 449-2812
(303) 449-4545

He did a great job on my shoulder.
