shoulder

Do you have recurrent pain or stiffness in your shoulder joint? Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians uses arthroscopy to detect, diagnose and repair problems inside the shoulder joint. This minimally invasive surgical technique requires tiny incisions that allow a fiber-optic camera (arthroscope) and small surgical instruments to be inserted. We provide highly skilled orthopedic surgeons who specialize in arthroscopy techniques. Patients can take advantage of less pain, minimal scarring and a quicker recovery time through this procedure. Meanwhile, we are able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of shoulder conditions, including those that involve the rotator cuff tendons, labrum, articular cartilage, and other soft tissues surrounding the joint.

When Is Shoulder Arthroscopy Recommended?

When nonsurgical treatments such as rest, physical therapy or medications have failed to relieve your shoulder pain, arthroscopy may be recommended. This advanced procedure can be used to treat a wide range of shoulder problems, whether it is from injury, overuse or age-related wear and tear. Our sports medicine physicians use shoulder arthroscopy to successfully treat the following:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Labral tears
  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Inflamed tissue or loose cartilage
  • Recurrent shoulder dislocations
  • Bone spurs

Recovery from arthroscopy can vary depending on your specific injury or condition. However, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to be diligent in your follow-up care and recommend the most effective rehabilitation strategies to help you regain complete, pain-free range of motion in your shoulders. We work collaboratively with your physician, Chiropractor and physical therapists to preserve your continuity of care and provide the most successful recovery after a shoulder arthroscopy.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
