Orthopedic Injuries & Procedures for Shoulders

One of the most complex joints in your body, the shoulder has the greatest range of motion of any joint. Its three bones are the Humerus (upper arm bone), the Scapula (shoulder blade), and the Clavicle (collarbone). As a ball-and-socket joint, your shoulder depends on an elaborate system of muscles, tendons and ligaments for stability and to help it move smoothly and rotate properly. If nonsurgical options don’t alleviate your pain or ease your other symptoms, it may be time for shoulder surgery by Dr. Peter Dipaolo.
