  • Why you might not get all the answers about your shoulder or elbow surgery during your doctor’s visit, leaving you more confused than ever
  • How can you learn the essential information you need about your surgery and recovery even if you have no medical knowledge
  • How you can overcome the fear and confusion of your surgery without getting all kinds of conflicting information so that you can feel confident in your decisions and take steps to get back to what you love to do

You know what it’s like. You’re sick and tired of laying on the couch, icing and elevating your arm because you’re still in pain from your surgery. You’re grumpy because you’re still in a sling and still need pain medicine. You are home and not at work because you can’t drive and can’t do your job duties. And most of all, you’re frustrated because you didn’t expect any of it when your doctor told you that you needed surgery.

Or maybe you are having shoulder or elbow surgery soon. Maybe you’re having an arthroscopic procedure to treat shoulder pain. Or maybe the surgeon has to do an open surgery on your elbow to repair a tendon or ligament or fix a fracture. You don’t know what you will be allowed to do after surgery. You don’t know how long it will take to recover. And worst of all, you don’t even know the questions to ask to help you recover.

And the rehab and recovery from your elbow and shoulder surgery is just as important - maybe more important - than the surgery itself. The surgeon might spend 15 to 90 minutes fixing whatever is damaged. But your recovery and return to sports and exercise could take many, many months. If you don’t know what to expect or what to look for if your shoulder or elbow isn’t progressing well, you might take even longer to heal and maybe never get back to the level you were before you got hurt.

Statistics show that about half of orthopedic surgeons spend 12 minutes or less with you in your office visit. The overwhelming majority spend less than 16 minutes with each patient.

Plus, a lot of orthopedic surgeons use technical jargon, and patients like you with no medical knowledge don’t understand what the doctor is saying. 

What’s more, as you’re sitting on the exam table with your head now spinning with thoughts of shoulder or elbow surgery and being on crutches for a long time, you don’t even think to ask some key questions…

  • Do you need surgery now, or can you wait a few weeks (or months)?
  • Do you need to be completely asleep for surgery, or are there other anesthesia options?
  • How long will you be out of work or school?
  • When can you drive after surgery?
  • Do you need physical therapy, or can you rehab your arm on your own?
  • What are signs that something is wrong with your shoulder or elbow and that you aren’t recovering the way you should?
  • When can you return to play sports or exercise?
  • And many other important questions

But between the few minutes you might get with your doctor or orthopedic surgeon, the failure to think of those critical questions as you deal with the shock of finding out you need surgery, and the doctor’s confusing explanations, you leave the office more confused than you were before the visit. 

How I accidentally became the sports and exercise injury expert…

I’m Dr. David Geier, orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine expert. I provide education, information and commentary on sports and exercise injuries for athletes and active people so that you can stay healthy and perform your best.

I’m double board certified in orthopedic surgery and orthopedic sports medicine. Before I dedicated myself to helping people online understand and overcome injuries, I treated thousands of people in my practice who suffered shoulder and elbow injuries, and I still perform hundreds of surgeries each year. But now I am known all over the internet as the go-to guy for explanations of complicated orthopedic injuries using simple language that you can understand. 

Let me tell you a little bit about how I became this “guru” and how I can help you…

As I started my website,, and wrote articles and recorded videos and podcasts on sports and exercise injuries, my traffic grew quickly from people from all over the world trying to find information about their injuries. Hundreds of thousands of people come to my site each month looking for education and insight on injuries and injury treatments.

What I have found fascinating is that so many people struggle to get the answers they need about their elbow or shoulder injury and surgery. I have received tens of thousands of questions over the years, and their questions largely boil down to two situations...

  • They suffered an injury but have no idea what it is or if it’s serious enough to see a doctor.
  • Or they have seen a doctor for it, but they have no idea what the diagnosis actually means, why they were told they need surgery, and when they can get back to what they want to do.

I don’t want that to be you as you try to recover from your surgery.

My files are full to overflowing with success stories and unqualified praise like this...Almost every day, I get emails from people who use my injury information and are absolutely thrilled that the content has helped them confidently make decisions about their care.. Honestly, I could fill more than 20 typewritten pages with amazing success stories just like these.

Now it’s your turn: I want to give you the insight and proven steps I have used to help athletes and active people in my practice get back to the same or higher level of activity AFTER their shoulder or elbow surgery! 

Not too long ago, I spent hours and hours putting everything I know about shoulder and elbow surgery and the process of getting back to 100% into what I consider the very best source of information on how you can recover from surgery without the anxiety and confusion…. 

It’s called Recover From Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Like a Champion!

There are 6 main modules in my Recover From Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Like a Champion! training. Let me walk you through each of them...

Module #1: When and Where To Schedule Surgery  

First, we tackle questions you probably haven’t thought to ask. Namely, when do you need to have surgery? Can you wait several weeks or months until you have a break at work or school? Or do you need surgery right away? And does it matter where you have the surgery?

Module #2: Preparation Before Surgery 

The night before surgery can be an anxious time, but if you prepare ahead and know what to expect, you can relieve that anxiety. We discuss some important points about that preparation, including the best clothes to wear to surgery, what to bring with you and what to leave at home, and other steps to take the night before foot and ankle surgery.

Module #3: The Day of Surgery 

The morning of surgery is a whirlwind, so you need to prepare. Learn what you will do once you arrive, who you will talk to and what they will do. This is also your last chance to talk to your anesthesiologist and orthopedic surgeon. Here’s what you should ask them.

Module #4: The First Hours And Days After Surgery 

Once you get home, you might face some challenges, like pain, nausea and vomiting. Here are some simple steps to overcome some of these challenges and what you should discuss with your surgeon before you head home. We also discuss some of the signs you should look for that could show you have a problem.

Module #5: Your First Postoperative Visit With Your Surgeon 

The first office visit with your surgeon is important for many reasons. We discuss what you should bring to this visit, what your surgeon and his or her staff will do and most importantly, what you should ask them.

Module #6: Return To Sports and Exercise 

The rehab and recovery phase after shoulder or elbow surgery is a lengthy, stepwise process. Learn what’s involved in overcoming pain, swelling and stiffness and how to start jogging and other exercise and playing your sport quickly without setting yourself back.

To get advice like this elsewhere online…it would take you many days and nights scouring hundreds of sites and video channels.

If your time is worth $100 an hour (and I bet your time is more valuable than that!), that time spent searching the internet could cost you several thousand dollars…and all that conflicting information from people you don’t know are truly knowledgable could leave you even more confused!

And I’d bet you won’t find any orthopedic surgeon, who would sit down with you for several hours and teach you everything you need to know about your shoulder or elbow surgery to help you return to the sport or exercise you love!

I do offer one-on-one discussions to explain injuries, surgeries and recovery to people, but I charge about $1000 per hour … To be fair, $1000 or more would be a drop in the bucket compared to the incredible peace of mind and clarity you’ll possess knowing you are making the best decision for you and your recovery from surgery.

Because you (or one of your kids) are preparing for shoulder or elbow surgery or just had surgery, you can get the complete Recover From Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Like a Champion! training for only $197 ... Over the course of one year, that’s just 54 cents a day ... barely half the cost of a newspaper you would read in the doctor’s office waiting for your appointment!

Can you think of a better way to spend 54 pennies than by learning the essential information you need about your elbow or shoulder surgery so you can confidently take action and recover quickly and safely? I didn’t think so!
