Shoulder & Elbow
Relax! WakeMed Orthopaedics specialists assure you that most shoulder and elbow pain can be treated without surgery. But, when advanced surgical techniques are needed, the experienced team of surgeons with WakeMed Orthopaedics offers the latest procedures to improve strength and decrease pain.
Minimally invasive techniques, such as arthroscopic surgery, offer important patient benefits - less blood loss, shorter recovery, less pain. WakeMed orthopaedic surgeons are highly skilled in the common and somewhat uncommon use of these techniques to ensure patients have the best possible experience.
Some common and uncommon procedures and techniques offered by WakeMed Orthopaedics include: clavicle fracture open reduction; internal and percutaneous fixation; elbow arthroscopy; arthroscopic double row rotator cuff repair; arthroscopic acromioclavicular repair; arthroscopic repair after first-time dislocation in a young athlete; total shoulder replacement and reverse total shoulder replacement; minimally invasive bicep tendon repair; and non-surgical treatment for shoulder impingement and lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow).
The best patient outcome is the focus of the WakeMed Orthopaedics team. They are uniquely dedicated to following and maintaining your positive progress throughout your treatment and recovery.
