The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body and its proper function is essential for all our daily activities. At California Pacific Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, our physicians treat the entire spectrum of shoulder injuries, including tendonitis, tendon tears, complex fractures and dislocations, and advanced arthritis. Our physicians are skilled at providing an accurate diagnosis, using a precise clinical examination, and the diagnostic testing, such as x-ray and MRI to help create an individual treatment plan for each patient. Treatment options may include physical therapy and medical management, such as oral medication or injections, and, if necessary, surgery. At California Pacific Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, we continue to be on the forefront of new techniques in arthroscopic and replacement surgery, including the reversed total shoulder. This replacement can be used to restore function in shoulder conditions which were previously untreatable. If your shoulder is holding you back, visit one of our shoulder specialists at CPOSM so that we can help you get “mobilized” again.
