Dr. Bieniek is a practicing orthopedic surgeon who daily sees patients with shoulder related pain. He and his wife Kristi developed this pillow in response to his patients' desperate need for relief from lost sleep due to shoulder pain. The pillow can be used for conservative treatment of shoulder pain and also is beneficial in both the preoperative setting and postoperative setting for patients’ comfort.

Sinai Medical center in New York and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Bieniek also received advanced fellowship training in hand, upper extremity, and micro-vascular surgery at the University of Alabama, Birmingham.

He has maintained a thriving practice in both Missouri and Illinois for over 21 years and performs inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures. He also coordinates physical therapy for patients to achieve the maximum restoration of function.

Healthgrades, an independent company that evaluates hospitals and physicians, voted Dr. Bieniek's Orthopedic Group to be among the top 100 Orthopedic Groups in 2012.
