People ask me all of the time whether or not they should have rotator cuff surgery. Today I had the opportunity to speak with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Sean Rockett about this. Enjoy.
Dr Rockett is an orthopedic surgeon in Massachusetts who specializes in the shoulder and knee. Dr. Rockett is also on the Crossfit Medical Team for the Crossfit Games and Regionals. He knows his way around a barbell and provides excellent information for athletes like you and me.
