Shoulder pain can result from any number of causes. Perhaps you suddenly injured your shoulder during a fall or in a car accident. Or, maybe you’re dealing with a chronic shoulder condition that’s gradually worsening over time. It’s important to obtain an accurate diagnosis, since shoulder treatment will depend on exactly what’s causing your pain.
At North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic — a trusted practice that’s been serving the Durham, North Carolina, community since 2003 — our fellowship-trained shoulder doctors have experience treating a wide range of shoulder conditions, including but not limited to:
- Rotator cuff tears
- SLAP tears
- Sports injuries
When you visit North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic for shoulder treatment, one of our skilled providers will conduct an examination to determine what’s causing your symptoms. Based on that diagnosis, he or she will prescribe a course of treatment that’s tailored to your specific needs. We believe in providing patient-centered care, and we generally recommend that individuals attempt to relieve their symptoms using conservative techniques before turning to surgery. If a conservative approach doesn’t resolve your symptoms, however, you’ll be glad to know that our orthopedic shoulder surgeons have extensive experience performing a wide array of shoulder surgeries, such as:
- Shoulder replacement surgery (including total shoulder replacement surgery and reverse shoulder replacement surgery)
- Rotator cuff repairs
- Shoulder arthroscopy
We perform inpatient and outpatient procedures at various local hospitals, including Durham Regional Hospital, Davis Ambulatory Surgery Center, Duke Hospital, and Duke Ambulatory Surgery Center. One of our knowledgeable and compassionate surgical coordinators will walk you through every step — from your pre-op appointment all the way to your post-op appointments — helping to make the surgical process as easy and stress-free as possible for you.
