Cutting-edge technology is used to provide all our patients with the innovations available to treat their specific problems. For example, minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery provides patients with faster recovery, less pain, and improved function. Having an experienced team is key to successful shoulder and elbow replacement surgery. For patients with arthritic shoulders and elbows, our team provides the opportunity to once again live and work to a fuller capacity.
Our basic science and clinical research endeavors are aimed at providing newer surgical techniques and following outcomes to continually improve functional status for our patients.
The University of Maryland Department of Orthopaedics Shoulder and Elbow Program offers affiliated occupational and physical therapy at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation Institute at Woodlawn. At the Institute, the therapists are specially trained in rehabilitation of the shoulder and elbow before and after surgical reconstruction. Their focused efforts allow our elite-level athletes, weekend warriors, and entire patient population to reach their goals.
