Each year, more than 13 million people seek medical care for shoulder problems. As the most movable joint in the body, the shoulder can also be the most unstable. Unlike a true ball-and-socket joint such as the hip, the shoulder sits more like a golf ball on a tee, making it heavily dependent on the surrounding ligaments, muscles, and tendons to hold it in place. And, given that the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulder joint is easily injured.
With extensive training in the areas of sports medicine, minimally invasive procedures, arthroscopic techniques, and joint replacement, our physicians have broad experience in the diagnosis and treatment of a full spectrum of conditions affecting the shoulder. Whether the pain and/or stiffness are a result of a sports-related injury, manual labor and repetitive activities, or a degenerative condition, our physicians stay abreast of the latest technical advances in surgical technique and minimally invasive options to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date care for problems affecting the shoulder.
