Shoulder Rotator Cuff Tear and Repair
A tear in the rotator cuff tendons may develop either because of an injury to the shoulder or as a degenerative process whereby the tendon thins with age and activity, analogous to a pair of socks wearing out and developing a hole. This can happen suddenly or gradually creep up on a patient over many months.

Shoulder Impingment and Decompression
Impingement syndrome occurs when the rotator cuff tendons, which uniquely pass between two areas of bone, rub on a relatively hooked under surface of the acromion and become inflamed resulting in tendonitis and bursitis. Click on the icon on the right to find out more.
Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition which affects the capsular lining of the shoulder joint itself. The capsule and related ligaments become inflamed, thickened and contracted.
