In brief: 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.

In brief: Orthopedic Surgeon

Orthopedic surgeons perform shoulder arthroscopy along with surgical repair. Many surgeons perform shoulder arthroscopy but only a few surgeons focus only on shoulder surgery.
Depending on the nature and complexity of your problem you may consider seeing a shoulder specialist: http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/shoulder-specialist.Htm.
