Dr. Ricchetti took on my reverse shoulder replacement as a challenge and followed through with his commitment. Although my case needed significant bone grafting, it is amazing how well it feels and works now. He seemed to realize how the surgery could help me and he offered support and a time window to decide. I am grateful for his help.
