Shoulder pain / surgery
Shoulder issues are common with sports and work-related injuries, as well as trauma and sometimes arthritis. Shoulder disorders affect simple day to day activities as well as our ability to work and play. Many disorders of the shoulder are treated with non-surgical approaches such as medications, injections and physical therapy. When surgery is indicated, our orthopedic surgeons will perform advanced and minimally invasive procedures, including shoulder arthroscopy.
Common shoulder conditions treated include:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Labrum Injuries
Many shoulder issues can be addressed with this minimally invasive surgery. During arthroscopy surgery, the surgeon uses microscopic cameras and instruments inserted through small incisions to repair the issue. Conditions that are most commonly fixed using arthroscopy are rotator cuff tears, labral tears, impingement, instability, tendon injuries, tennis elbow and joint inflammation.
Joint Replacement Surgery
As with other major joints, when joint cartilage is too severely damaged or worn, often the only treatment option remaining is a total joint replacement. Severe shoulder arthritis can be treated this way with much success and get you back to life in motion.
