Thanks for all of your input, everyone. I just made an appointment with Dr Seeman at Panorama in Golden. They are "out of network" for Tricare Standard, which means they are allowed to charge up to 15% over the maximum limit that Tricare allows. I go in next Tuesday. Nervous, but need to get this done.

I had my full rotator cuff tear done by him - everyone said he was one of the best and could do these surgeries in his sleep. Good luck with the recovery - unfortunately, rotator cuff is longer recovery than shoulder replacement but 5 months out I'm finally 95% good or so!

Glad you found who is likely a very competent surgeon. From my personal experience, PT is extremely important, although seemingly long and somewhat brutal. In the long run you should have full dexterity in the end. I, too, offer my services for transportation or assistance with supplies if you find yourself unable to drive for a while. PM or email me.

thanks, guys and thank you so much, mummydog! I should be good with hubby on the hook for taking care of me :)

I know ALL about PT and AGREE 100%! I have had hand surgery (broke a bunch of fingers when they got caught in a steering wheel as my car was spinning around in a car accident); bunion surgery (have full use of my big toe!) and wrist surgery when I blew out some cartilage taking a fall at work. I know all about keeping scar tissue at bay and know it can be painful but REQUIRED.

I have been given a referral to a local rehabber:

DANA AMUNDSON
Specialty: PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Address: 26719 PLEASANT PARK RD CONIFER, CO 80433

I have gone to Evergreen PT and have had good success, but it would be nice to only hop up the street to Pleasant Park Road.

Any experience with her?


do y'all mind me asking how much the surgery,etc set you back? I know each one is different, but just to get an idea

Any of the above mentioned surgeons (Dr. Seeman, Dr. Reister) have great reputations and will no doubt take very good care of you. Physical therapy is indeed a vital part of your recovery, and I noticed that you have been given a referral to Dana Amundson. Dana Amundson PT, DPT & Mary Thuente PT, MSPT are currently working to open Conifer Physical Therapy, a new clinic conveniently located in Conifer, along the 285 corridor. We anticipate being open by early July, and can be contacted at Dana@ConiferPT.com or Mary@ConiferPT.com. We wish you the best in your recovery!

Chuck Gottlob at Panorama did both or my wife's shoulder surgeries - rotator cuff and other stuff in the past two years. She was very happy.

thanks, ConiferPT. I may be one of your first patients as your open time looks like it could coincide with my surgery time. FYI, it was Dr Linn would gave me the referral :)

I'm still seeing Dr Gottlob at Panorama for my shoulder injury. He and his staff are great.
