The surgeons at Augusta Orthopedic Surgery provide treatment for common shoulder conditions and injuries. Whether you’re a weekend athlete or a professional sportsperson, you’ll receive personalized care and quality treatment.
The shoulder is the most movable joint in your body. It can also be the most unstable. Unlike a true ball-and-socket joint such as the hip, the shoulder sits more like a golf ball on a tee. This makes the shoulder heavily dependent on the surrounding ligaments, muscles, and tendons to hold it in place. The ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, thereby making the shoulder joint vulnerable to injuries.
With extensive training in arthroscopic techniques and joint replacement, our physicians have broad experience in the diagnosis and treatment within the spectrum of shoulder conditions.
Whether the pain and/or stiffness is a result of a sports-related injury or a degenerative condition, manual labor or repetitive activities, our physicians stay abreast of the latest technical advances in surgical techniques and minimally invasive options to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date care for problems affecting the shoulder.
