Shoulder Orthopaedics

NOMS treats patients with all types of shoulder and elbow disorders. We offer both surgical and non-operative treatments. Our first line of treatment is always a non-surgical approach to treating pain.

NOMS shoulder orthopedists offer advanced arthroscopic and open surgical techniques to restore damaged joints, ligaments and bones. That the shoulder is one of the most moveable joints in the human body, also makes it vulnerable to instability. Common issues NOMS shoulder experts resolve include: sprains, strains, dislocations, separations, tendonitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs, frozen shoulder, fractures, and arthritis. Because the joint is held in place by major muscles, ligaments and tendons, often problems are associated with the breakdown of soft tissue in the joint’s vicinity. NOMS orthopedic shoulder specialists offer world-class care and the latest advances in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of shoulder conditions, for best patient outcomes and highest-possible quality of restored active life.

At a Glance

Outpatient Shoulder Replacement

NOMS orthopaedists always recommends surgery as the absolute last option. But when patients have hit the proverbial wall with pain, and conservative measures are no longer helpful, surgical intervention may be the only option.

Rotator Cuff Surgery

Surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff often involves re-attaching the tendon to the head of humerus. A partial tear, however, may only need a trimming or smoothing procedure called a debridement. A complete tear is repaired by stitching the tendon back to its original site on the humerus.

Frozen Shoulder Treatment

The most common symptoms of frozen shoulder are a gradual worsening of pain and inability to use your arm normally. Pain may result from specific motions such as reaching overhead or behind your back. In most cases, physiotherapy and a steroid injection into the joint will be attempted first. If unsuccessful in reducing pain, a surgical procedure called arthroscopic capsular release will be conducted.

Bicep Surgery

This procedure is recommended for partial or full-thickness biceps tendon tears, biceps instability, SLAP lesions, or biceps tendinopathy. Patients may undergo cortisone injections first, and then decide to have a tenodesis when pain and function are no longer managed by conservative treatment.

Regenerative Medicine

Through advanced regenerative medicine treatments, your body’s own platelets, stem cells and growth factors can stimulate healing and enable your body to repair injured tissues, reduce inflammation and ultimately heal itself.

Shoulder Instability Treatment

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body, with a complex arrangement of structures working together to provide the movement necessary for daily life. Unfortunately, this great mobility comes at the expense of stability. Initial treatment for recurrent instability of the shoulder centers on physical therapy. The goal of surgery is to return stability to the shoulder with the least loss of motion.
