Our Shoulder, Arm and Hand Surgeries
If your doctor recommends surgery, our team will help you through each step. Most upper extremity surgeries are outpatient, meaning you won't spend a night in the hospital. We'll be here to make sure you have a convenient, high-quality procedure that gets you on your way.
The most common shoulder surgery is for rotator cuff tears. Your doctor may also recommend shoulder surgery for things like arthritis (painful wear and tear), bursitis (inflamed joint cushions called bursae) or tendinitis (sore, swollen connective tissue).
You and your doctor may be considering surgery to treat tennis elbow, arthritis conditions or remove scar tissue. In most cases, surgeons perform minimally invasive arthroscopic elbow surgery.
Hand and wrist surgeries
Your doctor may recommend surgery for broken bones, injured ligaments or tendons, or damaged nerves. Surgery can help relieve discomfort from conditions like carpal tunnel, arthritis or trigger finger.
