Biologic repair for the shoulder

Injuries to the shoulder produce pain with activities and often at night.

Restoring normal tissue anatomy is the key to long-term shoulder function.

When surgical repair is necessary we employ biologic techniques to repair, regenerate and replace the torn tissues. These techniques include:

 

Complex rotator cuff repair

Labral repair for shoulder instability and dislocations

Clavicle repair using a novel intramedullary screw rather than plates for clavicle fractures

AC joint reconstruction with allograft tendons

Impingement repair with removal of the inflamed bursa

To cut, or not to cut? To repair, or to let heal? To rehab without fixing? To live with imperfect parts? Each of these questions is faced every day by surgeons and their patients. Here are a few decisions about incisions.
The human shoulder is a complex system, interconnecting bones, muscles, tendons and cartilage. When shoulder pain occurs, finding out exactly what’s going wrong is the first step toward a cure.
