Treating your Most Flexible Joint

The shoulder joint has the greatest mobility of any joint in the body. Unfortunately, this makes it more likely to be injured or have problems from everyday wear and tear, overuse, and the aging process. Our board certified and fellowship trained shoulder surgeons are experts in treating this vulnerable joint that is crucial to your life’s daily activities. Shoulder problems can cause severe pain and prevent you from doing your work, driving your car, carrying a baby and sleeping through the night. We offer the best diagnostic tools, treatments and surgical options to get your shoulder back in motion so you can return to doing the things you love.

Expertise in Treating Shoulder Injuries

From shoulder fractures to separation of the shoulder and torn rotator cuffs, when you have a shoulder injury you can experience not only great pain, but also swelling, weakness and nerve problems like brachial plexus neuropathy. You might hurt your shoulder in the course of sports activities, work-related tasks, projects around the home, or a bad fall. We take care of every level of shoulder injury, and have expertise in shoulder surgeries to treat rotator cuff tears, impingement syndrome and shoulder instability problems like torn labrums. All of the specialists who care for your shoulder at the Bone & Joint Institute are dedicated to orthopedics and are highly trained in the best protocols to ensure your safe and successful recovery.


Overuse Injuries & Shoulder Arthritis

Sometimes shoulder pain on gradually as a result of overuse, which puts too much stress on the joint or soft tissue of the shoulder. You may also get shoulder pain as a result of arthritis, which inflames and damages the lining of the shoulder joint. If the arthritis pain becomes unbearable and limits motion in your shoulder, you may be ready to consider shoulder replacement surgery.
