Many people suffer from joint pain at some time in their lives. The shoulder and the elbow are two areas that are particularly susceptible to injury, fracture, dislocation, arthritis, tears and other sources of pain. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, that can alleviate pain and restore function in the shoulder and elbow.
SLUCare orthopedic surgeons specialize in shoulder and elbow repair and replacement. Our fellowship-trained physicians begin with an educational approach, taking time to explain your condition and your options for treatment. Some patients respond well to conservative, non-surgical treatments, such as modified activity, medication, therapeutic exercises or cortisone injections. Other conditions may require a surgical solution.
SLUCare Orthopedic Surgery offers a full range of surgical options, including:
After surgery, your doctor will provide follow-up care in clinic to monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have related to your recovery. Your surgeon will also work with your primary care physician, rheumatologist, or other specialists as needed to help you achieve long-lasting and effective results.
