Shoulder Services at OSSM Group

The shoulder consists of several joints that, in combination with muscles, allow for a wide range of motion in the arm. At OSSM, our surgeons specialize in all aspects of shoulder care, including the treatment of rotator cuff disorders, instability, and other debilitating shoulder conditions. Our services include:

  • Shoulder Slap Tear
  • Rotator Cuff Repair
  • Labral Repair
  • Total Shoulder
  • Replacement
  • Partial Shoulder
  • Replacement
  • Arthroscopic
  • Surgery

Injuries to the shoulder can lead to damage in the rotator cuff, labrum, and biceps tendon, resulting in chronic pain, disability, or recurrent dislocations. Our highly trained surgeons specialize in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery techniques, offering repair options for damaged tissue that result in reduced pain and faster, more complete recovery. For shoulder pain caused by arthritis, total shoulder replacement can provide successful treatment, eliminating pain and restoring function. Additionally, our surgeons are leaders in the region when it comes to reverse total shoulder replacement, a cutting-edge technique for patients with rotator cuff tears requiring shoulder replacement.

Shoulder slap tears, also known as superior labrum anterior to posterior (SLAP) tears, are common shoulder injuries that involve damage to the labrum, a ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket. These tears can result from sports activities, repetitive overhead motions, or traumatic incidents. At OSSM, our specialized surgeons are experienced in performing shoulder slap repairs, focusing on restoring stability and function to the shoulder joint. Through arthroscopic surgery, our surgeons meticulously repair and reattach the torn labrum, allowing for improved shoulder mechanics and reduced pain.
The rotator cuff is a group of tendons that attach the muscles of the scapula (shoulder blade) to the humerus (upper arm). Tears in the rotator cuff can cause severe pain and disability, often requiring surgical repair. Our surgeons are trained in advanced arthroscopic techniques to repair the rotator cuff by re-attaching the torn tendon back to the bone. Most patients achieve a full recovery with good strength, full range of motion, and no pain.

Arthroscopic Labral Repair

The labrum is a ring of cartilage on the glenoid (socket) where the ligaments of the shoulder attach. Shoulder injuries/trauma can cause tears in the labrum which may cause pain, catching and popping, and recurrent dislocations. Our surgeons use arthroscopic techniques to fix these labral tears, re-attaching the torn cartilage back to the bone. This eliminates pain and instability, allowing patients to return to full activities including overhead sports.

Total and partial shoulder replacements are surgical procedures designed to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve quality of life for individuals with severe shoulder arthritis or irreparable shoulder injuries. In a total shoulder replacement, the damaged parts of the shoulder joint are replaced with artificial components, including a metal ball and a plastic socket. This procedure provides significant pain relief and enhances shoulder mobility. Partial shoulder replacement, on the other hand, involves replacing only the damaged portion of the joint, preserving the healthy parts.
