Power Lifter Lived in Pain for 30 Years Before Having Ream and Run Surgery


Hello, this is Gary Edwards. I wanted to send a message about my shoulder. I had a Ream and Run shoulder replacement back in October 2016. I couldn’t be happier with my shoulder!

The attached video says everything you need to know. I haven’t moved my shoulder this well since 1982! I had multiple injuries to my shoulder during my early career and multiple surgeries. I’ve dealt with pain and a lack of motion in the shoulder for the past 30 years.

Power lifting is something I love to do and I didn’t want to give that up.  I thought my only options were to do a total shoulder replacement or give up power lifting.  Then I found Dr. Carofino and learned about the Ream and Run. “Life-changing” is what comes to mind when I think about the surgery. Again, please see the video to see how my shoulder is feeling and performing. I’m sorry I didn’t have this surgery sooner…
