Dr. Frisella's Practice Intro Video


The Barnes Hospital system produced this short video about my shoulder surgery practice, which includes interviews with some of my patients.  A heartfelt thank you to the people who took time out of their day to make this video possible.  Seeing patients talk about their results is a nice reminder of why I do what I do.

Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation Meeting

We had a great turnout for my talk last month at the Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation Annual Meeting.  I spoke about impairment and disability, and how I assign disability ratings in my practice.  I used videos to illustrate how I assess loss of strength and motion.  Generally, most patients who have a surgically repaired rotator cuff or labral tear will have about 5% permanent loss of strength and motion in their shoulder.  That means that, in the long term, they will get back about 95% of their "normal" strength and motion.
