Of all the joints in the body, the shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) is the most complex and often the most vulnerable to injury. The frequent use and inherent instability of this ball and socket joint, combined with strain or damage to any part of the intricate shoulder complex, can lead to chronic shoulder issues. These conditions may affect the soft tissues of your shoulder, which can limit range of motion and cause significant pain.
For many individuals plagued by shoulder dysfunction, surgery is often recommended when other forms of treatment have proven to be unsuccessful. Our orthopaedic surgeons are experienced in addressing a wide range of shoulder conditions using state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technology. The innovative surgical techniques and medical devices they use are designed to effectively restore proper shoulder function, alleviate discomfort, and improve quality of life. Every surgical plan is highly customized to suit your unique treatment needs and lifestyle for optimal results.
