Our shoulder experts treat every type of shoulder damage, pain and mobility problem and regularly handle the most complex cases.
The shoulder is more sensitive than most of us think. Its extraordinary range of motion and primary point of articulation for the entire arm put it at risk for a variety of injuries. These include: arthritis, nerve damage, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder fractures and dislocations.
We Review Options Together to Make the Best Decision
Our goal is to help you return to your healthy, productive life. A quarterback for a pro football team will have a different course of care than a 75 year old woman struggling rotator cuff problems. Therapy can play a dramatic role for many shoulder injuries, arthroscopic surgery provides new minimally invasive options for relief. Advanced surgery, joint replacements and tendon transplants represent some of the shoulder repairs we've pioneered and now teach as part of our fellowship programs.
Advanced Care for Athletes with Shoulder Injuries
For professional and amateur athletes and active enthusiasts, we are proud to offer total care for the complete range of sports-related shoulder injuries. The shoulder is sensitive. There are many moving parts woven together in a complex network of nerves, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, cartilage, blood vessels and bone. A small inflammation or tear can literally shut down the shoulder.
