Shoulder Conditions

shoulder conditions

We depend on our shoulders to support many of our most basic movements – including pushing, pulling, lifting, and throwing. The shoulder is one of our most flexible joints, which can make it vulnerable to injury. Whether acute (from an injury) or chronic (due to long-term overuse), shoulder pain can be very debilitating. Caring for shoulder conditions or injuries can be complex. MedStar Georgetown has a team of orthopedic specialists dedicated to helping you regain the functionality of your shoulder and perform a full range of motion. As leaders in caring for shoulder conditions, our shoulder specialists:

  • Are all fellowship trained and specialize only in shoulder surgery
  • Have expertise in cutting edge, emerging techniques for treating shoulder disorders, including arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and reverse shoulder arthroplasty
  • Perform the largest number of reverse shoulder replacements in the Washington area
  • Specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques that use small incisions to treat your injury with higher precision, less pain, and a faster recovery time than  traditional surgery
  • Train surgeons across the United States on how to perform the latest surgical techniques
  • Advance and develop new shoulder surgery techniques through research
  • Offer a sophisticated rehabilitation program designed to give you the best possible outcome
