Whether you’re struggling with chronic shoulder pain, suffering from an acute shoulder injury or are dealing with a difficult tear, our shoulder specialists will work with you to build a treatment plan designed around your injury and your personal recovery goals.

Take the First Step to Wellness

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain or struggling with an injury, our team of orthopedic shoulder specialists can help.

The Heiden Orthopedic Approach

Shoulder injuries are very common, especially in active adults. Unfortunately, the shoulder is a complicated joint and even minor injuries can result in complicated treatments. Whenever possible, our orthopedic shoulder specialists will opt to treat common shoulder injuries with non-surgical methods. Some injuries and conditions, however, do require surgery to ensure a full recovery.

At Heiden Orthopedics, we believe the healing process is a team effort. Before we discuss any treatment options with you, we first and foremost want you to understand the ins and outs of your shoulder injury. When you’re fully informed and ready to consider your options, you and one of our orthopedic shoulder specialists will work together to design a personalized treatment plan to help you return to your everyday life, injury-free.
