The arthritis pain in my shoulder finally became enough that Dr. Westerheide and I made the decision to proceed with surgery. It was one of the best decisions I've made. 

Everyone at the hospital was kind and helpful and prior to my surgery, Dr. Westerheide came in to give me one more of his brilliant smiles before my eyes closed. After the procedure, I was back home with minimum pain in about 36 hours.

Within three weeks, I was able to return to my part-time job with little to no pain! Physical therapy helped to get me back in full swing in about three months. Six months later, I can now do more than I could prior to the surgery and have zero pain! 

My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! Thank you to Dr. Westherheide and his amazing staff! 

Just a quick note..Dr. Westerheide is not as young as he looks..he has a ton of experience and is awesome!!
