Shoulder and Elbow

Our elbows and shoulders live in a state of perpetual motion, and we can take for granted how much we use these continually moving parts until pain strikes. This region of our musculoskeletal system relies on muscles, tendons and ligaments to remain in place and function together successfully. If these structures become injured or overused, your shoulder can become unstable, causing more disruption to your lifestyle. 

Our treatments range from minimally invasive procedures to joint replacements covering most of the needs to return you to your desired lifestyle. If surgery is recommended for you, we have a comprehensive group of surgeons offering a variety of services and rehabilitation plans to meet your post surgical needs. 

At USF Health our specialists treat a wide spectrum of shoulder and elbow conditions including:

  • Multi-directional Shoulder Instability
  • Shoulder Dislocation/Trauma
  • Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Pathology/Injury
  • Labral Injury
  • Osteoarthritis

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Scapular Dyskinesis
