Patient Stories

Shoulder Pain Relieved with HemiCAP Implant

Let us introduce you to Dave, our newest Shoulder HemiCAP Patient Testimonial.

Dave lives in Colorado and thrives on being active. After years of shoulder dislocations and weightlifting, Dave needed a solution to relieve his shoulder pain & arthritis that had developed over the years. At 45 years old, he went to see his doctor who gave him 3 options, cortisone shots, physical therapy or a total shoulder replacement.

Devastated by the options provided to him and not willing to settle for a total shoulder replacement, Dave went home, did some research of his own and was able to get a second opinion by a different orthopaedic surgeon. They decided that the Shoulder HemiCAP implant would be the best option for Dave’s arthritis. Shoulder HemiCAP implants only resurface the damaged area of the joint, unlike a total shoulder replacement which replaces the entire joint. Dave got the surgery and is now back to doing what he loves.

Dave said, “The HemiCAP has made it so I can continue to do the things I love with my children. It’s restored my lifestyle.”
