Experienced Shoulder Surgeons

As the most flexible joint in your body, your shoulder is able to handle a lot of motion. It’s this flexibility that also makes the shoulder more prone to injury, either through regular daily use or excessive strain on the muscles and joints.

Shoulder pain, weakness, stiffness, or swelling may be the sign of a larger problem. If these issues are not addressed in a timely manner, they will likely worsen. While certain injuries and causes of pain can be treated with noninvasive methods, other cases might require surgical intervention. The shoulder surgeons at Chatham Orthopaedic Associates have the specialized knowledge and expertise to handle your condition safely and effectively.

  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Shoulder Instability

  • Shoulder Separations

There isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to shoulder surgery. When you set up an initial consultation with our shoulder specialists, we will evaluate your condition and recommend one or more of the following treatments:
