I am 45 years old and had 2 problems. A left shoulder torn rotor cuff & a right hip torn labrum. I had the shoulder surgery in Oct. 2010 & the hip surgery in March 2011, both by laparoscope. The recover time from the surgeries was easier than I thought & Dr. Toman call the night of each surgery to see how I was doing. He is a very caring & talented doctor. The staff & thearpy staff are all wonderful people to work with.
