I had a labral tear in my right hip. I had severe pain in my hip joint whenever I did any major physical activity. I am a dancer and have been dancing for nineteen years.
In August 2011, after many years of enduring excruciating left hip pain, I was referred to Dr. Miyamoto by a sports medicine physician. I am a professional photographer with a black belt in Shotokan Karate, so my career and lifestyle require me to be able to move easily and quickly.
Bilateral Total Shoulder Replacement As a patient of Dr. Miyamoto, it is with great pleasure that I accepted to participate in the testimonial section of his orthopaedic website.
I am an active individual and I love sports. I play soccer, train Kungfu/Wushu (Chinese Martial Arts), and love weightlifting. Over years, I have been injuries several times. I had repeated ACL tears from landing badly from jump kicks.
Total Shoulder Replacement Twelve months post-surgery, and I have just returned from a 3-week trip to Europe! Dr. Miyamoto's excellent surgery replacing my right shoulder has allowed me to return to a normal and pain-free life.
In the summer of 2011, I started having a lot of groin pain, as well many strained muscles in my hip right hip. As a 17 year old, whom always been active in sports, I could not pinpoint what was causing this pain. There were no sports injuries or accidents I could recall.
I injured my shoulder training for MMA. After seeing numerous doctors with no improvement I searched online for someone who specialized in sports related injuries. Dr. Miyamoto stood out and was very knowledgable about my injury from the beginning.
I wanted to thank you for the guidance, proper diagnosis and care in getting through surgery as well as the recovery process with my hip surgery in September 2016.
I tore my rotator cuff on February 14th, 2015. I was due to deploy six days later. Dr. Miyamoto not only worked me into his schedule but had completely repaired my shoulder in two weeks.
I recently had my 1 year follow-up visit with Dr. Miyamoto. He performed a total left shoulder replacement in October of 2014. I am doing things with my left arm that I was unable to do for quite a while, pain free. I am thankful and amazed.
