Shoulder Treatment

Relieving Shoulder Pain and Improving Function to Get You Back to the Things You Enjoy

The Shoulder Joint

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. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body and provides a wide range of motion, permitting athletes to throw a baseball 100 miles per hour or send a golf ball 515 yards.

Shoulder pain can range from mild to debilitating and may often affect a person’s quality of life. Shoulder pain often keeps people from wanting to move the shoulder joint and this can lead to a condition known as frozen shoulder.


Surgical And Nonsurgical Shoulder Treatment

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.

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.
