Shoulder and Arthroscopy
The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints and, therefore, is prone to injury. Most shoulder pain occurs when soft tissues are injured or over used. Soft tissues refer primarily to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Pain in the shoulder may travel to other parts of the body, such as the elbow or neck. Since most of the physicians at Texas Orthopedic Hospital have an expertise in a particular area of the body, there is always a specialist available to identify the source of your pain and accurately treat your medical needs.
Surgical techniques for repairing torn rotator cuffs (shoulder ligaments) have been perfected by the surgeons at Texas Orthopedic Hospital. Physicians from all over the world are trained here on this minimally invasive technique, which has improved results for the patient.
