Pro Football Injury Dr. Farshchian, My name is E.G., I am a 64 year old. I played 11 years in pro-football. Doctor 2 years ago you worked on my left shoulder that had no cartilage in the joint and all other doctors that I conferred with, told me that shoulder replacement was the only answer. Thanks to your great work on my shoulder, I am now pain-free and have a lot better range of motion. I can play golf and I am also doing a little weight lifting. You did a great job, thank you.
