Dr. Genin demonstrates that he truly cares about his patients and his profession. The procedure that he performed was life changing. The conventional treatment for calcific tendinitis would have been rotator cuff surgery. Using a significantly less invasive procedure with local anesthesia eliminated the risks associated with general anesthesia in addition to a long painful recovery with a moderate risk of complications.
