Shoulders have one of the most complex joint structures in the body and are almost constantly in motion. The complexity of the shoulder joint and its constant use can make shoulder pain and immobility constant and tough to endure.

At The Orthopedic Hospital, surgeons specialize in surgery to repair the muscles, connective tissue and joints that have been damaged from trauma or injuries to the shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries, repeated dislocations due to instability, fractures to the arm or collarbone and tissue damage resulting from arthritis can be surgically corrected.

Many procedures at TOH are minimally invasive. Specially trained physicians use the latest in technical advances and arthroscopic techniques to help patients regain mobility and return to their normal daily activities as quickly as possible.

Conditions treated include:

  • Arthritis (joint)
  • Biceps tendon rupture
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Burners and stingers
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures (collarbone, greater tuberosity, shoulder and shoulder blade)
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Hill-Sachs lesion
  • Labrum tears
  • Osteoarthritis of the shoulder
  • Proximal humerus fracture (broken shoulder)
  • Rotator cuff injuries and tears
  • Shoulder dislocation/instability
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Shoulder separation
  • SLAP tears (superior labrum from anterior to posterior tear)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Winged scapula

Procedures performed include:

  • Bankart repair
  • Bicep tenodesis
  • Capsular plication and release
  • Distal clavical excision
  • Proximal humerus (arm bone) fracture
  • Reverse total shoulder replacement
  • Rotator cuff repair/mini open rotator cuff repair
