In recent years the approach to shoulder problems has changed drastically. Modern medical research has contributed a great deal to the understanding of complex shoulder joint mechanics, and this has produced much more reliable treatments and more successful surgical procedures. Surgery to the shoulder now tends to be much less invasive, with many previously painful procedures now being done arthroscopically (via surgical scopes instead of an incision) with less discomfort, less risk, and improved outcomes, Champion Orthopedics offers a full spectrum of modern care for the shoulder of all ages.
Two of the most common shoulder surgeries are repair of the rotator cuff and the labrum of the shoulder joint. The labrum repair is commonly known as a SLAP Lesion Repair.
The elbow is one of the most delicate joints in the body and unfortunately is all too vulnerable to fractures and to over-use injuries in young athletes.
