Ben Kuzma: Gaunce to shoulder surgery load, off-season rehab

The Province—April 19, 2017

The Province reported that Vancouver Canucks forward Brendan Gaunce will have surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

HSS sports orthopedic surgeon Samuel A. Taylor, MD did not treat Gaunce, but said typical recovery involves putting "the patient in a sling from four to six weeks to allow the tissue - the damaged labrum - to heal back in position."

Dr. Taylor commented that the goal of arthroscopic surgery is "to give patients back range of motion and function they had. We basically take things that are too loose and we make them tighter. And we take things that are too tight and make them looser. He (Gaunce) should be able to come back and play at the same level."
