It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and your friends ask you to join them at the park for a game of volleyball. Though the invitation is enticing, you also begin to worry about the pain you’re certain to feel in your shoulder when you return home that evening. Lately, it seems that almost everything you do – even reaching for a glass in the cupboard – causes you to feel pain in your shoulder.

Being physically active brings energy, enthusiasm, and balance to your life. Arthroscopic, or minimally invasive, shoulder surgery can help get you back in the game. Using advanced medical technology, your surgeon can assess what’s causing your pain and, through arthroscopic surgery, may be able to repair your injury. Compared to traditional shoulder surgery, arthroscopic surgery results in smaller scars, less postoperative pain, and a faster return to the physical activities you love.
