Ask for a Specialist with a Lot of Experience

Finding a shoulder specialist

Hundreds of scientific studies have proven that patients get better results from a shoulder specialist who do a LOT of a particular surgery, like shoulders, and that’s what we do at Arizona Center for Hand to Shoulder Surgery; hundreds per year! Despite the advancements in options available to the shoulder specialist; of the more than 20,000 Orthopedic specialists in the United States, over 75% only perform 1 or 2 shoulder replacements each year, with only 3% performing more than 10 replacements per year. Advanced arthroscopic shoulder operations still represent a significant challenge for most Orthopedic surgeons, and techniques that allow almost all shoulder injuries to be repaired without an open wound are still only available in a few state-of-the-art centers, like Arizona Center for Hand to Shoulder Surgery. Expertise requires skill, judgment, and lots of experience, and we have performed thousands of shoulder surgeries. A Shoulder specialist –- an orthopedic specialist with advanced training and lots of experience in shoulder surgery – can offer options and solutions not otherwise available, including consistently better results.

Arizona Center for Hand to Shoulder Surgery serves clients in Arizona as well as other states and countries.
