The very fact that the shoulder is the most movable and flexible joint in the body also means it is one of the most fragile. Shoulder problems and pain can arise from either chronic wear or sudden injury - and these problems can be extremely painful and left untreated, life altering. At OrthoColorado we know that weekend athletes and do-it-yourselfers affected by the routine motions required to golf, play tennis, swim, lift weights or work on common construction projects want to treat their condition and get back to their active lifestyles.
Thanks to recent advances in techniques and technology, many shoulder surgeries can be done arthroscopically. Problems that can be treated with shoulder arthroscopy include rotator cuff tears, impingement problems and torn cartilage. In some cases, such as with advanced arthritis of the shoulder, a shoulder replacement may be recommended to offer improved strength and range of motion as well as reduce pain.
When you choose OrthoColorado Hospital, you'll find our shoulder surgery experts and specially trained orthopedic care teams are here to help you recover and get back to what you love.
