Your shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body.Unfortunately, the power of the shoulder can also mean susceptibility to injury.Depending on the severity of the shoulder joint problem, non-surgical methods of treatment can be helpful before surgery.
However, in some instances, delaying the surgical repair of a shoulder can increase the likelihood that the problem will be more difficult to treat later. An early and correct diagnosis can make a significant difference in the long run.
As an orthopedic surgeon and self-professed “weekend warrior,” Dr. Vincent Dalton has a wealth of first-hand experience with the complex issues of shoulder pain. Dr. Dalton uses cutting-edge techniques to perform minimally-invasive shoulder repairs and replacements. Known as arthroscopic surgery, he makes a small incision and inserts a tiny fiber-optic camera to evaluate the tissues of your shoulder joint.
