Extraordinary rehabilitation effort after a bilateral ream and run procedure

The owner of a CrossFit gym had bilateral ream and run procedures, the left in 2010 and the right in 2012.
Here are his left preoperative films, 

the axillary view showing anterior joint space loss and anterior subluxation of the humeral head on the glenoid.

Here are the two year post operative films

the axillary view shows the use of a posteriorly offset eccentric humeral prosthesis to center the head on the reamed glenoid.

Here are the preoperative films on the right

And the immediate postoperative films on the right. We've yet to obtain the two year post operative films on that side.

Last week he kindly posted this video on Facebook. Note that in order to see this video, you need to log in to Facebook in the upper right hand corner of the page. Be sure to turn the volume up!

A super result from a super effort on his part!
