​When Pam’s shoulder pain got so bad that she could not sleep at night, or even drive a car comfortably, she decided it was time to see a doctor. Her orthopedic surgeon said that the only way to eliminate the pain was to do a total shoulder replacement.

Pam had her shoulder surgery replacement as an outpatient at Cascade Surgicenter, so she was able to go home the same day as the procedure. She was impressed with the knowledgeable and caring staff, but most importantly, she liked knowing that she could recover in the comfort of her own home. A couple of weeks after the surgery, she started physical therapy. She was diligent about doing her exercises because she wanted the procedure to be successful. Now she is back to work and doing all the things she enjoys doing, including being able to walk her two very active dogs. Her only regret was not getting the procedure done earlier.
