Shoulder Anatomy, Injuries and Conditions
The shoulder is a multiaxial ball and socket joint that has a wider range of motion than any other joint in the body — a range of motion that comes at the cost of stability.
Bursitis, tendinitis, separations, fractures and damage to the four rotator cuff muscles and their tendons can all cause significant shoulder pain and instability.
From AC separations to rotator cuff tears, our orthopedic shoulder surgeons have helped people heal with state-of-the-art surgical procedures.
