Shoulder Resources


 

Knowledge is power, but with an increasingly complex sea of medical information, it can be extremely difficult for patients to find meaningful health information. Dr. Vivek Agrawal, among the top 10 Shoulder Specialists to Know, commented “specialists are seeing an increasing number of patients with previously failed surgeries.”

As a destination center for complex shoulder problems, we see patients that come to us in an effort to find a solution for a previously unsatisfactory procedure. We have listened to these patients and they clearly indicate their frustration, their inability to find accurate information to help make the correct diagnosis, and the next steps they need to take to return to their normal lives.

Our goal is to create an online community to help guide patients to timely information and a venue for patients to empower themselves with information. We also want to invite commentary from other specialists to better understand the types of problems that they are seeing in their practices in an effort to integrate and disperse important information that can better help us all serve our patients. We hope you find this site useful in your quest to returning to an active, fulfilling life free from pain.
