The shoulder service of the department of Orthopaedic Surgery treats a wide variety of disorders ranging from athletic injuries to degenerative and arthritic conditions. Our physicians specialize in the treatment of rotator cuff disease, shoulder dislocations, shoulder arthritis, fractures about the shoulder and elbow, as well as sports related shoulder injuries. The primary goal in the treatment of any should disorder is to alleviate pain and restore function as quickly as possible.
