Solutions To Your Shoulder Pain
Individualized Care In Richmond, VA
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint that connects the bones of the arms to the upper body through several important ligaments, tendons, cartilage and muscles. It is the most mobile joint in the body, providing a wide range of motion that allows athletes to throw a baseball 100 miles per hour or hit a golf ball over 500 yards. Shoulder pain can range from mild to debilitating and can affect a person’s quality of life. The pain often keeps people from wanting to move the shoulder joint and this can lead to a condition known as frozen shoulder.
Rotator Cuff Tears
Dr. Goradia repairs all rotator cuff tears using minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery. For severe tears he can use specialized techniques to support and reinforce surgical repair with donor tissue. These specialized techniques promote and accelerate healing after surgery.
Biceps Tendon Pain & Injury
A partial or complete tear of the bicep tendon in the shoulder can lead to pain at the front of the shoulder. Bicep tenodesis is an arthroscopic surgical technique that Dr. Goradia helped develop to repair biceps tendon tears.
Shoulder Labral Tears and SLAP Lesions
A tear in the labrum can cause pain, weakness, limited range of motion, and instability leading to more frequent dislocations. Labral repair surgery is performed arthroscopically and involves attaching the labrum and ligaments back to bone.
Outpatient Shoulder Replacement
Shoulder arthritis resulting in pain and reduced arm mobility is the most common reason for a shoulder replacement. Shoulder replacement surgery is performed by Dr. Goradia as an outpatient procedure for patients, allowing for faster recovery.
