Todd’s Story

Today, two years later, my right shoulder is better than it has been for 30 years.

In July 2019, while in South Dakota on vacation, I tore most of the muscles in my right rotator cuff. I made an appointment with Summit Orthopedics and was referred to Dr. Scott Pepin. After an MRI I was scheduled for surgery Friday of Labor Day weekend. Long story short, the rehab was long and slow, but I did everything that I was told to do. Today, two years later, my right shoulder is better than it has been for 30 years. Thank you Dr. Pepin for the amazing results that I have experienced as a result of your care. I would most highly recommend Summit Orthopedics.

    “Having my own personal experiences in sustaining injuries and the subsequent recovery process helps provide me insight into my own patients’ conditions and what they are going through. I also understand the importance of and strive to help return my patients back to the activities they want to do, whether that be to walk around the block or return to high-level sports performance.”
