Shoulder Repair For the Active

You can’t visit the doctor without hearing that you need to be more active. Exercise is a key factor in an overall healthy lifestyle, but unfortunately, there are times when it can be hard on your body. In some cases, that exercise can even cause you to need shoulder surgery. If that sounds like you, then you will connect with 10TV’s story about Mike Blue. Years of competitive swimming led to a painful deterioration of the cartilage in Mike’s left shoulder, which left him in need of surgery. Because of painstakingly long recovery times, Mike was weary about shoulder replacement, which led him to the top shoulder specialist in Columbus, OH,  Dr. Thomas Kovack and his one-of-a-kind method of shoulder replacement –arthroscopic biologic total shoulder replacement.

Arthroscopic biologic total shoulder replacement is a new kind of shoulder replacement surgery, and our very own Dr. Thomas Kovak is one of the few shoulder specialists in the entire country that is able to perform it. Arthroscopic biologic total shoulder replacement is an innovative alternative to traditional surgery because it requires smaller incisions, it utilizes donor materials rather than plastic and metal, and it can get you back up and ready to go much more quickly. Some of the benefits of this kind of surgery include faster recovery and rehabilitation, which allows you to return to your normal activities sooner.
