Advancing Shoulder Surgery

Reaching, grabbing, throwing, driving, lifting or waving—all are activities that we may take for granted.

In fact, these and many other seemingly simple daily activities are only possible because of the versatility and flexibility of the shoulder. This area of the human body is uniquely complex; its intricate and mobile design, coupled with the use and abuse sustained each day, can make this region of the body highly susceptible to injury.

At Tanner Ortho and Spine Center, we apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from shoulder pain or discomfort. It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, if a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our team of medical professionals are well versed in treating a variety of conditions affecting the shoulder.

Our surgical team specializes in the treatment of:

  • Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fractures, dislocations and subluxations
  • Impingement syndromes of the shoulder
  • Instability of the shoulder
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Soft tissue sprains, strains and contusions
  • Total shoulder replacement

Tanner Ortho and Spine Center physicians also treat injuries below the shoulder — injuries of the hand, wrist and elbow.
