Dr. Sabrina Strickland (CONNECTICUT)

Dr. Strickland really cares about her patients & does everything she can to extend the health of knees & shoulders until a replacement surgery has to be done. After every Ortho Surgeon I saw in CT said my right shoulder had to be replaced when I was still in my late 40’s, Dr Strickland performed a procedure that allowed me to get 7 more productive years before there was no recourse medically but to replace it. 
Dr Strickland is also doing the same for my knees over the last 10-12 years. No total knee yet! 😀
