Orthopedic Shoulder Treatments

Orthopedic shoulder treatment encompasses a range of interventions aimed at alleviating pain, restoring function, and improving the quality of life for individuals suffering from various shoulder disorders. This may include non-surgical options such as physical therapy, medication, and corticosteroid injections to manage pain and inflammation. In cases where conservative treatments are ineffective, surgical procedures like arthroscopy, rotator cuff repair, or shoulder arthroplasty may be considered. A thorough evaluation by one of our premier orthopedic specialists is essential to determine the most appropriate course of treatment based on the patient's specific condition and overall health.
