From skiing the slopes in Vermont to rowing the choppy waters of the Schuylkill, Paul does it all. But as a bilateral above-knee amputee, it's all with his arms. Whether in his wheelchair or out on the water, his shoulders are essential to everything he does--every day.
So when severe arthritis set in to both shoulders, Paul went to Rothman. After carefully considering Paul's situation, his doctor recommended a total replacement of both shoulders.
Immediately after surgery, Paul's shoulders already felt much better. Now with two new shoulders, he feels like a new man. He's out there cutting across the Schuylkill again and handcycling about town. With the help of his doctors at Rothman, Paul's back to his old ways--making everybody else look lazy.
