Dr. David Bailie
Dr. Bailie has been doing resurfacing arthroplasty of the shoulder (specialized partial replacement) since the FDA approved their use in 2001. In fact, he was instrumental in bringing the technology to the US Orthopedic market with Biomet. This procedure is best for younger, active patients who are in need of pain relief from arthritis of the shoulder but too young to consider a full replacement.
He has performed this surgery on hundreds of patients with excellent mid-term and long term results. This includes active Olympic athletes, a Hall of Fame Major League Baseball player, many physicians/triathletes and "weekend warriors" who desire to maintain a very active lifestyle.
