"He’s a good dr the only thing I didn’t understand was I was suppose to have rotator cuff repair but he did a clean up didn’t do the repair. Said he didn’t think it needed it. But went through a lot of theraphy got arm moving but only 70 % still not a lot weight bearing hardley no strength. But guess it come as I go."

"Dr. Roca did a left total shoulder replacement on me with very good results! He informed me of all the risks, etc, before surgery and was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure and risks involved. I am 3 months post op with no pain, but I am still in physical therapy. I would recommend Dr. Roca to anyone who needs shoulder surgery due to his integrity and very caring nature! I would use him again!"
