Experienced Orthopaedic Specialists for Shoulder & Elbow Treatment

Shoulder and elbow pain due to injuries or wear and tear on your bones, muscles or tendons can impact your arm's mobility and functionality. The most common cause of elbow and shoulder pain is tendinitis — an inflammation and injury to the tendons — that's caused by overuse. If you're experiencing pain when lifting your arm or moving it forward or behind your back, our expert orthopaedic specialists will be able to help assess your pain, diagnose your injury and develop a treatment plan.

Our shoulder and elbow specialists offer a complete range of non-surgical, minimally invasive (arthroscopic) and open surgery for teens and adults. We provide treatment for the following conditions:

  • Frozen shoulder 
  • Fractures, including those that do not heal (non-union) or heal incorrectly (malunion)
  • Labrum tears including SLAP tear (injury at the top of the labrum)
  • Instability, separation or dislocation,

  • Nerve dysfunction
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Rotator cuff injury or tear/impingement syndrome
  • Scapula winging and abnormal movement of the shoulder blade
  • Shoulder and elbow arthritis
  • Shoulder muscle injury

  • Tendinitis and bursitis

Tailored Shoulder & Elbow Treatment

We design individualized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s needs and goals, and we maximize use of non-surgical options before considering surgery. When surgery is necessary, our orthopaedic surgeons offer innovative and advanced operative therapies to repair shoulder and elbow conditions, including both minimally invasive and open surgery options. We strive to help patients regain full function and return to their daily activities as soon as possible.

Surgical Services

  • Latarjet procedure (coracoid transfer for instability)

  • Revision surgery after prior operative treatment

  • Reverse shoulder replacement (when the patient has a rotator cuff tear, this procedure uses deltoid muscles to work and position the arm)

  • Shoulder arthroscopy for rotator cuff, biceps, labrum tear and bone injury

  • Tendon transfers 

  • Total shoulder replacement 

We work closely with your physical or occupational therapist to maximize results for non-operative, pre-operative and post-operative treatment.

It was the second game of a double header and Brandon Kelly was 15 pitches in. The pitcher got the sign from the catcher and delivered a side arm slider.  "My elbow popped and my arm just 'fell,'" said Brandon, 14, who was pitching for a Marian Catholic High School baseball game in April when he was injured.
