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.

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.
