Having shoulder problems? Come see us and our shoulder surgeons will treat your shoulder condition. We see alot of rotator cuff tears, shoulder tendonitis & arthritis and bicepts tendinitis. We also do shoulder joint replacement.


Shoulder Separation

A shoulder separation is an injury to the joint between the clavicle and the shoulder blade. This part of the shoulder can be injured from a blow or a fall onto the top of the shoulder during football, hockey, skiing, and snowboarding. This injury can also occur after repeated weightlifting.

Shoulder Dislocation

A shoulder dislocation occurs when the ball completely comes out of the joint’s socket. This occurs when the arm is pushed backwards and levers the ball to pop out from a fall while snowboarding or skiing and from contact during football and the martial arts.

Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff helps to lift and rotate the arm and to stabilize the ball of the shoulder within the joint. Workers that suffer from impingement can weaken the rotator cuff to the point where it tears.

Labral Tears

The labrum is the cartilage rim that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint. The labrum can tear when a worker falls and hangs by their arm. The labrum can also tear as an occupational injury when the arm is used forcibly overhead.

Shoulder Joint Replacement

Shoulder replacement surgery started in the United States in the 1950s. It was used as a treatment for severe shoulder fractures.

Impingement/Tendonitis of the Shoulder

Impingement is one of the most common causes of pain in the adult shoulder. It results from pressure on the rotator cuff from part of the shoulder blade (scapula) as the arm is lifted.

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is a disorder characterized by pain and loss of motion or stiffness in the shoulder. It affects about two percent of the general population.

Fractures of the Shoulder

Falling on the outstretched arm is a common way that workers break the bones that make up the shoulder joint.

Dislocated/Unstable Shoulder

The shoulder joint is your body's most mobile joint. It can turn in many directions, but this advantage also makes your shoulder joint easy to dislocate.

Recommended Link

Biceps Tendinitis

The biceps tendon attaches the biceps muscle to the shoulder. This tendon can become frayed causing pain in the older athlete who plays tennis and racquetball.

Arthritis of the Shoulder

Although most people think of the shoulder as a single joint, there are really two joints in the area of the shoulder. Both joints may be affected by arthritis.

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is easily injured because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
