Shoulder and Elbow
The Missouri Orthopaedic Institute is a leading provider of surgical and non-surgical treatment for disorders of the shoulder. We care for a wide range of painful and debilitating conditions including rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations and instability, bursitis and impingement syndrome, biceps tendonitis, fractures and degenerative arthritis. The institute's non-surgical treatment regimen features the use of medication, strengthening programs, and injection therapies to reduce pain, improve strength, and increase range of motion. Surgical interventions emphasize minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and arthroscopic stabilization procedures.
