Shoulder

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain, it can be difficult to do simple things like raising your arm, picking up a child or even going to work. Our team of board-certified shoulder specialists address disorders that affect the bones, joints, cartilage, muscles, ligaments and tendons around the shoulder. From the evaluation and management of degenerative diseases like arthritis to fracture care and even complex joint replacement surgery, our specialists are here to provide the care you need to get back to your everyday life.

With in-house physical therapy provided at most practice locations, the shoulder specialists at Orlando Orthopaedic Center can monitor your condition throughout the rehabilitation and post-operative process – providing the most current and extensive hand and upper extremity care in Central Florida.

A new shoulder without a hospital stay?

Yes, it’s possible to get your new shoulder without visiting the hospital — if you’re a qualified candidate.

Outpatient joint replacement surgery is a viable alternative to traditional inpatient procedures, producing similar results and offering several distinct advantages.

Outpatient joint replacement surgery is available for qualified candidates at the Orlando Orthopaedic Outpatient Surgery Center for the hip, knee, and shoulder.
