Rotator Cuff Surgery: Triathlon Racer Back to Training

Posted by Signature Medical Group on Friday, June 26, 2015 in Orthopedics

Keith Allen felt a painful pop in his shoulder during a strenuous weight lifting session. He went to orthopedic surgeon Thomas S. Samuelson, MD with Kansas City Bone & Joint Clinic, a division of Signature Medical Group, where an MRI showed he had a torn rotator cuff. Dr. Samuelson performed surgery. Keith is back to racing triathlons with a healed shoulder.
