Shoulder and Elbow Pain, Injury, and Treatment

Your shoulder is a versatile and valuable joint. When it is injured, the pain can significantly reduce its flexibility and motion, limiting your ability to perform certain functions. Problems can include tendonitis, bursitis, osteoarthritis from wear and tear, and cartilage and muscle tears from overuse.

Elbow injuries also can adversely affect your lifestyle. Tendonitis and tennis elbow are common problems that our physicians see, and baseball players can experience a variety of elbow problems, as well as shoulder injuries.

Our shoulder and elbow physicians specialize in evaluating and diagnosing injuries and disorders, and providing a treatment plan. They always first consider nonsurgical, conservative methods to effectively relieve your pain. However, if surgery is necessary to allow you to resume an active lifestyle, our specialists perform advanced techniques that are less invasive and can lead to quicker recovery times. Examples include rotator cuff repair, stabilization surgery, and spur removal.
