1) arthroscopic surgery that didn't help probably made things worse. 2) second surgery for capsule release, which was painful and long recover with two huges cares, was determined by two other docs (outside of kerlan jobe so they could be honest) as not unnecessary.. Dr Kvitne is overly flippant and creepily sweet and even arrogant. He told me prior to 2nd surgery he had a 100% success rate for this particular surgery and I would have normal movement again. Of course, after no success and my complaints that how barely saw me afterwards or seem not interested any equipment, swelling or PT, and seem unterested there is no improvement and a lot of pain. When I question his doctoring skills (in the nicest way possible) of how this was not working and I felt ignored, he was very upset I dared to criticise him (well it's my body!). And then gave me a 180 and said that it was a difficult surgery and I may more to fix it (yeah and it wasn't need anyway so he thinks I need another one again???WTF?!) In short, he is quick to make decisions without careful review, he lies to you about his success and therefore you can't trust him and he spends all of 5 minutes on you to make any decision on your body. My suggestion? Get a SECOND opinion from a doc not in the kerlan jobe clinic. Dr Bruce from NBC who I met recently said kerlan jobe clinic is overrated anyway. If your a high paid professional athelete, then I would guess you would be treated well but this doc and clinic is not the place to go.
