After two shoulder surgeries in a little more than two years, Petricia Tatinski feels like a new woman.
“I feel bionic,” she joked as she rolled out the ingredients for a blueberry pie in the kitchen of her Pueblo home.
Prior to 2014, Petricia could do very little to move her arms without pain. Roughly 25 years as a cosmetologist, keeping her arms and hands at just such an angle to cut and style hair, wore a path for arthritis to set into her shoulders.
By October 2014, Petricia said she met with her original orthopedic surgeon who referred her to Dr. Jennifer FitzPatrick of the Parkview Medical Group.
“He said you have no rotator cuff, but Dr. FitzPatrick was one of the best shoulder surgeons he knew,” Petricia said.
