Elbow and Shoulder Surgeons in Syracuse, NY
Elbow and Shoulder Surgery
Your shoulder is the most flexible and mobile joint in your body. In conjunction with your elbow, your shoulder allows you to move and rotate your arm to the front, side, above your head, and to the back of your body. When working properly, the large movements of the shoulder and elbow allow you to complete everyday activities with ease.
The shoulder and elbow are made up of many muscles, tendons, and ligaments that stabilize the joints, but they are susceptible to injury. Depending on how bad the injury is, you may need surgical treatment from an orthopedic doctor who specializes in shoulder and elbow surgery.
