As the most versatile joint in the human body, our shoulder provides us with a tremendous amount of flexibility. However, this range of motion can lead to shoulder pain or discomfort. In most cases, pain in the shoulder can be the result of one of four main causes: inflammation, instability, arthritis or injury.
Whether your shoulder pain is recent or chronic, our shoulder specialists can get you back in the swing of things with proper diagnosis and treatment.
Make an appointment for evaluation if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Shoulder arthroscopy, or “shoulder scope,” is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine, diagnose and treat the source of shoulder pain or other condition in your shoulder. During a shoulder arthroscopy, an orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions at the shoulder and inserts a small camera called an arthroscope, as well as other surgical tools to perform the procedure, to examine the inside of the shoulder joint. Arthroscopy is commonly performed in an outpatient setting, allowing patients to go home the same day. Patients typically experience less pain and a quicker recovery with an arthroscopic procedure, in contrast to open surgery.
