Patient Stories

Paul G. Kiritsis, MD

My Story:

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I have been able to quickly return to horseback riding.... and my sweet horse, Karl.

After a complete tear of my right rotator cuff last Spring, I was very worried about having it repaired. I was worried that it would sideline me from riding my quarter horses and force me to sit out of competitions for a long time. Dr. Kiritsis was able to repair my shoulder, and with help from my PT team I regained 100% mobility at 7 weeks - super early. At 12 weeks I was able to start rebuilding my strength. My shoulder feels so solid. I can once again extend my right hand to shake hands with business partners - something I had lost. Very humbling to be returned to health and riding. So happy!! Karl is happy too!
