After having researched the Orthopedic specialist the hospital recommended, Dr. Matthew Hansen from the CORE Institute (Center for Orthopedic Research and Education) on the internet feeling relatively optimistic seeing that he seems to have a very nice pedigreed education, I called him and made an appointment.
This “net” thing is great. Being able to do your homework on your doctor, check his eduction, check if he takes your insurance, see how much experience he has in the field, ie. shoulder surgery, arthroscopic rotator cuff and labrum repair, shoulder replacement which seems to be what I may need, put me at ease, so I am very happy about my appointment on Wednesday and will see how it goes.
Hopefully, we’ll just have the nice doctor look, decide he knows exactly what to do, make an appointment right away we’ll do the surgery and go on with our lives and they’ll be even better than they were before!
Will keep you up to date, I’m sure THAT is how it will go!! Could be the pain meds. talking!! Ha, Ha!!
