Latest treatments for shoulder and elbow pain

The specialists at Centura Orthopedics & Spine offer comprehensive treatment for shoulder and elbow pain. After diagnosing your condition, our orthopedic physicians will develop a customized treatment plan. Whenever possible, we will start with non-surgical treatments such as steroid injections and physical therapy.

When surgery is necessary, rest assured that our orthopedic surgeons offer leading-edge shoulder and elbow surgeries, including many of the latest, proven procedures such as:

  • Plasma-Rich Protein Injections

    Some conditions that cause shoulder or elbow pain may benefit from platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). If physical therapy, medications and steroid injections have not helped relieve your pain, your orthopedic doctor may recommend PRP and refer you to Centura Orthopedics & Spine orthopedic and sports-medicine surgeon Michael Simpson, MD. Dr. Simpson is one of a handful of board-certified orthopedic surgeons in Colorado qualified to treat orthopedic conditions with PRP. In this procedure, the patient’s own blood is drawn and platelets, which are known to reduce inflammation and promote healing, are then injected into the affected area. The procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities the next day.

  • Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery

    Our expert orthopedic surgeons can perform shoulder reconstruction procedure arthroscopically, using small incisions that allow tiny instruments to perform precise repair. Arthroscopic shoulder reconstruction is typically performed as an outpatient surgery.

    Arthroscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive shoulder surgery, offers several benefits, including:

    • Smaller incisions
    • Less trauma to soft tissue
    • Less pain
    • Shorter recovery time
    • Lowered risk of infection

    Some patients may need an open surgical procedure that involves a larger incision over the shoulder to perform the repair.

  • CT-Guided Shoulder Reconstruction

    Centura Orthopedics & Spine is one of only a handful of practices in the region with orthopedic surgeons who are specially trained to offer shoulder reconstruction surgery using CT imaging. With this leading-edge technology, advanced CT images guide the surgeon to the best possible positioning for the repair, which allows the surgery to provide maximum stability.

  • Biologic Shoulder Resurfacing

    Centura Orthopedics & Spine shoulder specialists can identify whether a patient is a candidate for this alternative to total shoulder replacement. This procedure preserves the patient’s normal anatomy, essentially replacing worn, arthritic cartilage of the shoulder joint with donor cartilage. 

  • Frozen Shoulder Surgery

    Centura Orthopedics & Spine surgeons are highly experienced in performing arthroscopic surgery to relieve frozen shoulder. During this procedure, tight portions of the shoulder joint capsule are cut via small incisions, with the goal of stretching and releasing the stiffened capsule. Manipulation involves gently moving the shoulder enough to stretch or tear the accumulated scar tissue, increasing range of motion.

  • Total Shoulder Replacement

    Centura Orthopedics & Spine surgeons will discuss whether a total shoulder replacement is the best option based on a patient's individual condition when the joint is severely damaged by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or a rotator cuff tear. If surgery is recommended, our surgeons are highly experienced and will provide the highest level of care. 

  • Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

    In certain circumstances, a patient may need a reverse total shoulder replacement to allow other muscles to do the work of the rotator cuff. Centura Orthopedics & Spine physicians are leaders in performing reverse total shoulder replacement.

    Candidates for reverse total shoulder replacement include those who have:

    • A completely torn rotator cuff that cannot be repaired
    • Joint disease or deterioration caused by a rotator cuff tear
    • A previous shoulder replacement that was unsuccessful
    • Severe shoulder pain
    • A complex fracture of the shoulder joint
    • Chronic shoulder dislocation
  • Elbow Arthroscopy

    At Centura Orthopedics & Spine we typically perform elbow arthroscopy as an outpatient procedure if we identify that it may relieve symptoms and improve a patient's range of motion.Our orthopedic surgeons also use this procedure to smooth irregular surfaces and remove bone spurs.

  • Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) Reconstruction

    Also known as Tommy John surgery, our surgeons can perform UCL reconstruction, using a healthy tendon from elsewhere in the body, usually an arm or leg, and using it to replace the torn ligament in the shoulder.

  • Sports Medicine

    We also offer specialized services for shoulder and elbow pain and injuries resulting from sports or activity. Our sports medicine experts have advanced treatment in conditions, including ligament tears, tennis elbow, and golfers elbow. We can recommend treatment to relieve the pain as quickly as possible to get you back in action. In addition, we offer prevention measures to help ensure that you stay injury-free.
