Beverly's Story - Total shoulder replacement

Beverly - shoulder surgery

"If anything happens to my left shoulder, I'm hopping on a plane to fly back east and have my surgery with Dr. Stenclik at Unity!"

Beverly, a school bus driver, suffered from arthritis. When the pain in her right arm became too much to bear she went to see Mark Stenclik, MD, at the Charles J. August Joint Replacement Center at Unity Hospital.

His recommendation was for a total shoulder replacement, and “everything went perfectly,” Beverly said. “The care I received was off the charts, 100 percent. My night nurse was especially wonderful. I’ve never seen anybody as sweet and sincere as she was. It wasn’t just a job to her.”

Beverly was very happy with her experience in the hospital and afterward. She went home the day after her procedure, and even got the green light to go back to work a few weeks later – allowing her to finish out the school year.

Although Beverly now lives in Nevada, she still talks about her positive experience: “I tell everyone if anything happens to my left shoulder, I’m hopping on a plane to have my surgery with Dr. Stenclik at Unity.”
