Since completing my training, I have chosen to limit my scope of orthopaedic surgical practice to disorders of the shoulder and elbow. As a sub-specialist, I see a large volume of problems ranging from relatively simple to very complex.
Given my sub-specialty, I see a high volume of work related injuries of the upper extremity. My office has experience with handling any upper extremity injuries sustained in the workplace. We have highly trained OR teams, as well as comprehensive rehabilitation, that can professionally treat any musculoskeletal injury.
I perform a high volume of shoulder replacement surgery, including reverse total shoulder replacement for rotator cuff deficient shoulders with arthritis. There are very good studies that have shown results with shoulder replacement (as well as most every other procedure) correlate with how frequently the procedure is performed. Researchers have shown lower complication rates, better outcomes, and more cost-effective care are achieved when performed at a facility doing high volumes by a surgeon performing the procedure frequently. According to the AAOS, the average orthopaedic surgeon performs 3 shoulder replacements per year. I routinely perform more than double that volume each month.
