Shoulder and Elbow

Shoulder and Elbow Expertise at Northside Hospital Orthopedic Institute

For any shoulder or elbow pain, our team has the experience and expertise to solve your issue. With specialized training for shoulder and elbow conditions and injuries, we take a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and recovery for improved function and motion. 

Shoulders and elbows are some of your most frequently used joints – and can be some of the weakest joints in your body, so injuries can easily occur. They are essential to most activities of daily living, so pain or lack of mobility should be addressed right away.

Improve Your Upper Body Range of Motion

If you are experiencing pain, weakness or decreased range of motion with your shoulder or elbow, you could have a serious condition that needs attention. 

These conditions could be a result of overuse or injury due to sports or recreational activities – or could be from a fall or work-related injury. For any concern, our team will work with you to determine the cause and understand your symptoms for a comprehensive list of shoulder and elbow issues, including: 

  • Arthritis
  • Bruises
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Impingement
  • Instability
  • Ligament injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Separations
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Tendon injuries
  • Tennis elbow

Advanced Shoulder and Elbow Treatments Available

Not every injury needs surgery, so we first consider non-surgical treatments such as medication management, rest (using slings, splints or casts) and physical therapy for increased strength and motion. 

Our team also provides expertise from arthroscopic treatment to remove loose cartilage or bone spurs to advanced reverse shoulder joint surgery if your condition requires surgical intervention. Our surgical team has the skill for any shoulder or elbow repair, including:

  • Arthroscopic labral repair
  • Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
  • Bicep tendon repair
  • Dislocation repair
  • Elbow arthroscopy
  • Fracture repair
  • Ligament reconstruction
  • Nerve decompression
