Patient Stories

D. Andrew Parker, MD

My Story:

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can continue to make memories with my family. Two rotator cuff tears and a torn labrum in my dominant shoulder had made it hard for me to be active with my three kids.

Last weekend my father, son and I played in a charity wiffleball tournament in Vienna to raise funds to brain cancer research. Our three-generation team played in honor of my grandfather who had passed earlier this year at the age of 99. We ended up taking 2nd place in our division and creating unique memories that will last a lifetime. The experiences we had that day simply wouldn't have been possible without the successful surgery and post-op care Dr. Parker provided. He took the time to understand my goals, explain my options, and guide me through a sometimes challenging recovery.
