Shoulder and Elbow Surgery

Many types of shoulder and elbow problems require clinical care by a physician or other health care professional. Common shoulder problems include sprains, strains, dislocations, separations, tendonitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs and frozen shoulder. Common elbow injuries include cubital tunnel syndrome, lateral epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow) and medial epicondylitis (Golfer’s or Baseball Elbow). Depending on the nature of the problem, nonsurgical methods of treatment often are recommended before surgery is considered. However, in some instances, delaying the surgical repair of a shoulder or elbow can increase the likelihood that the problem will be more difficult to treat later.
