Care & Management

Arthroscopic Capsular Release

Arthroscopic capsular release is a minimally invasive surgery used to help relieve pain and loss of mobility in the shoulder from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder). A radiofrequency (RF) probe is inserted into the shoulder. The probe uses RF waves to cut the tissue capsule that surrounds the shoulder joint, allowing the shoulder to move more freely.

Bankart Repair

If you have a painful shoulder, you may have a torn labrum. That's a tear of the thick band of tissue around your shoulder socket. A torn labrum can be fixed with a procedure called a "Bankart repair."

Cubital Tunnel Release

This surgery treats cubital tunnel syndrome. That's a compression or irritation of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. During this surgery, the nerve is given more room.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

This condition, also called "ulnar nerve entrapment," happens to the ulnar nerve in your elbow. This nerve travels along the inner side of your elbow and down to your hand. It's the nerve that makes the jolt you feel when you bump your "funny bone." With this condition, your ulnar nerve is compressed, stretched or irritated.

Intracapsular (Glenoid) Injection

During this procedure, a mixture of anesthesia and anti-inflammatory medication is injected into the space between the head of the humerus and the glenoid. This injection can be used to treat a variety of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and adhesive capsulitis. The physician may choose an injection site on the front, side or rear of the shoulder.

ORIF Surgery for Proximal Humerus Fracture

This surgical procedure repairs a break in the proximal end of the humerus. ORIF stands for Open Reduction Internal Fixation. During this procedure, an incision will be made and a metal plate will be attached to the humerus to hold the bone in place while it heals.

Olecranon Bursitis Aspiration

Olecranon bursitis aspiration, an outpatient surgical procedure, relieves pain and swelling in the elbow caused by bursitis, or inflammation of the bursa. The bursa is a fluid-filled sac between the skin and bones of the elbow.

Radial Tunnel Release

This surgery treats radial tunnel syndrome. That's a compression of the radial nerve. During this surgery, the nerve is given more room.

Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

During this procedure, the surgeon replaces a damaged shoulder joint with artificial components that reverse the structure of the shoulder. This procedure is most often used for patients who have had a failed total shoulder replacement. It is also helpful for patients who have had a complete tear of the rotator cuff, especially those whose injuries have led to an arthritic condition called cuff tear arthropathy.

Rotator Cuff Repair (Arthroscopic)

This surgery repairs a tear of the rotator cuff in your shoulder. The rotator cuff is group of muscles and tendons. It holds the head of the humerus in the shoulder socket.

SLAP Tear Surgery (Arthroscopic Method)

This surgery treats an injury in your shoulder. It repairs a tear of the labrum. That's a ring of cartilage around the shoulder socket. The injury happens where the biceps tendon meets the labrum. We call this injury a "SLAP" tear.

Subacromial Decompression

This surgery treats subacromial impingement. That's a pain you feel when you raise your arm. It happens when tendons in your shoulder press and rub against a part of your shoulder blade called the "acromion." This surgery is commonly done with the help of a special camera called an "arthroscope."

Subacromial Injection

This injection goes into your shoulder. It can help reduce your shoulder pain. We use it to treat many conditions. It's used for adhesive capsulitis, rotator cuff tendinosis and impingement syndrome.

Total Shoulder Replacement

This surgery replaces the damaged or diseased head of the humerus (also called the ball) and cartilage from the shoulder joint with a metal and plastic joint.

Ulnar Nerve Transposition

This surgery relieves pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. It moves the nerve to keep it from being compressed by the medial epicondyle (a bony bump on the inner side of your elbow).
