Find a Specialist that is an Elite Athlete in Surgery

Is your shoulder specialist an athlete?

The wide range of choices available to a shoulder specialist to treat any single problem can be mind-boggling. While there has never been a better time to be a shoulder specialist because of the great number of options available to help our patients, offering the best possible solutions also means increasing specialization.

Many consider the shoulder to be the most complicated joint in the body, and shoulder surgery has had revolutionary advances in the last few years. Along with the development of arthroscopic (small incision using fiber optic microscopic) techniques that allow almost all injuries to be repaired without a large incision, options for reconstruction and joint replacement by an orthopedic specialist are now available offering solutions for patients living with debilitating shoulder problems; even if they have had a shoulder surgery in the past that didn’t provide adequate results.

Professional golfers hit thousands of balls. Professional musicians spend thousands of hours of practice to perfect their craft. Professional pilots and race car drivers spend thousands of hours practicing. Look for a shoulder specialist who has performed thousands of shoulder surgeries and routinely performs the procedure you need.

Arizona Center for Hand to Shoulder Surgery serves clients throughout Arizona, as well as other states and countries around the world.
