Elbow & Shoulder
Our Shoulder and Elbow
Patients are at risk of upper-extremity injuries if they are active in recreational activities, performing repetitive tasks, or have had an acute injury. The risk increases if high-level activities are continued after 60 years of age. A multitude of shoulder and elbow injuries can develop that may prevent patients from living an active, pain-free life.
At the Bluegrass Orthopaedics, our fellowship-trained specialists treat shoulder and elbow conditions in patients ranging from pediatrics to senior citizens, and can tailor a treatment plan specific to a patient's condition. Our shoulder and elbow specialists treat patients and athletes of all ages.
Shoulder and Elbow
Some patients with rotator cuff problems can be treated non-surgically with a modification of activities, physical therapy, injections and anti-inflammatory drugs.
However, if surgery is recommended for elbow or shoulder conditions, the surgeons at Bluegrass Orthopaedics can treat complex conditions, including:
- Rotator cuff
- Shoulder replacement
- Fracture repair
- Instability of the shoulder
Surgical treatments for shoulder conditions performed by our surgeons include tendon transfers and fracture work, as well as joint replacement, rotator cuff, instability surgeries and arthroscopic repairs.
One procedure, reverse shoulder replacement, can offer patients with an irreparable rotator cuff and no overhead function the ability to improve range of motion and eliminate pain.
