Orthopaedic surgeons: Orthopaedic surgeons treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. When the shoulder is affected, arthroscopy is a common operative solution. Physical therapy, nsaid's, and oral/injectable steroids are the initial treatments for many shoulder problems. If non-operative management fails, arthroscopic surgery is the next step. May sure your orthopaedic surgeon is board certified.
