Whether for total shoulder replacement , arthroscopic shoulder surgery , athletics-related damage or
arthritis, our specialists recognize that even minimally-invasive
operations are not to be undertaken lightly. Therefore, they make every
effort to exhaust non-surgical options - be they ice, rest, physical or
