The shoulder is comprised of the clavicle (collarbone), scapula (shoulder blade), and humerus (upper arm bone), as well as numerous muscles, ligaments, and tendons. We utilize our shoulders for both mobility and stability, including lifting, pushing, and pulling. The shoulder is a common source of aches and pains, often the result of repetitive motion used in sports, at work, or during daily activities. Orthopedic injuries and conditions associated with shoulder discomfort range from tendinitis, arthritis, and bursitis to fractures, rotator cuff injuries, and instabilities.
At OrthoNorCal Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained and experienced shoulder surgeons are recognized as leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder injuries and conditions. They provide an extraordinary base of shared knowledge with advanced surgery and treatment methods for patients in Silicon Valley and throughout OrthoNorCal.
Common surgical procedures our shoulder surgeons perform include arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic labral repair, total shoulder replacement, reverse total shoulder replacement, complex fracture repair, biceps tendon repair, and shoulder resurfacing among many other techniques. Please be assured that although highly skilled in using the latest surgical methods, our shoulder surgeons always consider using nonoperative methods to restore your health first.
