Rotator Cuff Repair and Other Surgeries for Common Shoulder Injuries
Orthopedic surgeons at Johns Hopkins Howard County Medical Center evaluate shoulder conditions and can recommend a variety of treatments. Orthopedic surgeons can perform a variety of shoulder surgeries, including repair of fractures, dislocations, rotator cuff tendon tears, labral tears, and even partial or complete shoulder joint replacement due to arthritis or other conditions. Minimally invasive or arthroscopic shoulder surgery can also be performed, which can repair the injury using smaller incisions, meaning less pain and a quicker recovery for patients. Our surgeons can help you determine whether surgery is right for you and if so, which type of procedure.
