Shoulder Specialists Treating Patients in Reno, NV
Did you recently injure your shoulder, perhaps during a fall or while playing a sport? Or have you been living with chronic shoulder pain for quite some time now and not been able to find sufficient relief? In either case, you can get the help you need from the shoulder specialists at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. We’ve been treating patients since 1966, and we’re pleased to serve the Reno, Nevada, community.
Common Shoulder Injuries
The shoulder specialists at our practice have experience treating almost every type of shoulder injury. Some of the conditions we most commonly see include:
- Rotator cuff tears. Many patients are able to find relief from the symptoms of a rotator cuff tear using conservative treatment methods, but some may require surgery, which generally involves repairing the tear and then reattaching the affected tendon and the humerus.
- Arthritis. Given that there are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions, symptoms and treatment methods tend to vary from case to case. When conservative treatment doesn’t provide sufficient relief, joint repair or replacement surgery may become necessary.
- Dislocations. Shoulder dislocations can generally be treated with closed reduction, which involves easing the bones into their correct positions, but in more severe cases surgery may be necessary to realign the bones or tighten the nearby tendons and ligaments.
