I personally met both of th doctors even when I was consulting for the orthopedic surgeons for my shoulder injury treatment. Both of them are really nice and helped me to resolve my issue.

Dr Warner sent me to Dr Williams for a second opinion before doing my reverse. I started out at Ccf. I have been around the block as well at 3 institutions and most satisfied at mgh. No you can't' go wrong with that group, but some problems can't be made perfect.

Well, Dr. Iannotti and Dr. Warner work together on books with Dr. Williams for complex shoulder problems. I've had all 3 operate on me (Warner when he was still at the University of Pittsburgh, Iannotti after he left the University of Pennsylvania and arrived at the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Williams at both UPenn and the Rothman Institute). They are all excellent, you can't split hairs if you are lucky enough to get one of these 3. I also had Dr. Bradely (Steelers surgeon) and Dr. Morgan (famous for Curt Schilling's surgeries) but I would return to Iannotti, Williams or Warner without question. A friend did his shoulder and elbow fellowship at UPenn while Iannotti and Williams were together, he basically said if they can't fix you no one can. He is now a prominent shoulder and elbow surgeon in NYC... so if that isn't a ringing endorsement then I never heard one.

There is no doubt in my mind that Boston Shoulder Institute is the best, and I am a life long Clevelander!

In Cleveland your have Dr. Iannotti. If you want to stay in MI then http://www.rvorthopedics.com/physicians/lenters.htm has all the right training from U of Washington.Rush in Chicago is also a great option.

I would stay away from corrisone shots. 3 is the limit as it can adversely affect the tendons. Would you be willing to try Rush in Chicago? I had to go from Cleveland to Boston for the best care.

Hello folks! I had surgery for a partial rotator cuff tear, impingement and the clean out of bone spurs. My surgery date was in the fall of 2012. One year later I am now in as much or more pain than pre surgery. My current doc is ambivalent about what to do next. I have been through PT three times. The only thing that helps the pain is cortisone shots and oxycodone. Can someone here recommend a surgeon in Michigan or nearby in the Midwest region of the US?Any help would be greatly appreciated!
