Re: second mumfords procedure?
I had a Mumford Procedure.done after having a torn Rotar Cuff. Then still having problems, another Orthro. Surgeon suggested that I have a Mumford procedure. As I understood a Mumford procedure is something you can only have done once, like having your Appendix taken out, and the Surgeon a greed with me. I mentioned to the Surgen that the first surgery I had on my shoulder was a Mumford procedure and he said that whatever surgery I had it was not a Mumford procedure. I guess that is why it took the insurance company a very long time to get the surgery approved. I don't know what was done in the first surgery,but the insurance company was billed for a Mumford procedure, that was never done. After having 6 or 7 surgeries on my left shoulder I still can't lift my arm any higher than my shoulder and I would give anything to live without the chronic pain in that shoulder. YukonHal
