Shoulder

The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body. This also means that shoulders more easily become injured or suffer degenerative wear.


In addition to broken bones, tendon tears and luxations (dislocations) are frequent injuries requiring targeted treatment.  If the prospects for success with conservative therapy are good, the first-line approach taken is medications, injections, or physical therapy. If these steps do not lead to success, an operation may be needed to achieve further improvement.
In addition to providing care for tendon tears (rotator cuff tears) and dislocation problems (shoulder joint dislocations), our highly specialized services for shoulder conditions also address removal of calcification deposits, correcting impingement syndrome, artificial joint replacement including artificial joint revision surgery, and caring for broken collar bones and humeral head fractures.
