Mary Allen has been a rancher and outfitter in the Wind River Mountains since the late 1970s. But shoulder pain impeded her livelihood. “I couldn’t even raise my arm, so trying to bridle a horse was nearly impossible,” she said.
Mary learned that she could have shoulder replacement surgery in Jackson. “I was very impressed when I met Dr. Rafael Williams. I knew that I was in the right place.”
After some dedicated physical therapy, Mary is back in the Winds, guiding guests, saddling horses, and holding a rifle, all activities she couldn’t do for years. “I don’t like feeling helpless. And now that I can do things again, it’s just amazing.”
