Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Elbow & shoulder orthopedics and traumatology

Elbow and shoulder surgery deals with medical conditions and injuries involving the upper limbs. We guarantee to deliver comprehensive surgical care and provide follow-up by a skilled, multidisciplinary team to offer our patients the best recovery possible.

Our services

We deal with all aspects of different elbow and shoulder conditions, from diagnosis and treatment through rehabilitation follow-up care after surgery. These medical conditions include:

  • injuries from accidents, such as:
    • fractures and breaks 
    • dislocations
  • sports injuries, such as: 
    • shoulder instability
    • acromioclavicular joint dislocation
  • degenerative conditions, such as: 
    • rotator cuff tears
    • calcifications
    • osteoarthritis
    • rheumatoid arthritis

We also perform shoulder replacement surgery, which involves replacing the damaged shoulder joint with a prosthesis in the case of painful or advanced arthritis. 

When do I make an appointment?

Our medical consultations are specialized consultations. In most cases, your primary care physician, rheumatologist or sports physician will advise you to make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. The emergency department can also refer patients to our specialist Team.
