I had severe osteoarthritis in my left shoulder. I went to a local MD in Virginia, where i reside, and he suggested a reverse shoulder replacement. I was 64 years old but active in weightlifting, Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu and other martial arts. The local MD told me to get new hobbies and move to a location with no yardwork. I researched the subject and found Dr. Kovack. I sent him my xrays and he agreed that an arthrosurface shoulder resurfacing would work and enable me to continue my passions. After an MRI confirmed that my rotator cuff was largely intact, we scheduled surgery for November 14, 2022. After surgery, I had no pain. I wore a brace for four weeks and started physical therapy at two weeks. Now, almost seven months later, I am back to lifting weights, doing Brazilian Jujitsu and other martial arts as well as yardwork to maintain properties I own. I highly recommend Dr. Kovack. He is a great surgeon, listens to his patients and has a phenomenol staff (Jessica and Dawn). Thank you Dr. Kovack for giving me my life back!
