Shoulder and Elbow
We have the knowledge, experience, and expertise it takes
Your shoulder and elbow are both complicated joints that allow your arms to rotate and move in multiple directions. You may not realize how much you rely on your shoulder and your elbow—until you have a problem that prevents you from using one or the other of them normally. Pain or an injury to your shoulder or elbow can interfere with your ability to perform even the most basic of daily tasks.
When something goes wrong, it is important that you get treatment from a physician who has specialized knowledge of these joints. The board-certified shoulder and elbow specialists at Hackensack Meridian Health are familiar with the most innovative medical and surgical advances, including non-surgical treatments, arthroscopic surgery, and open surgery. We regularly treat problems such as shoulder fractures, shoulder instability, rotator cuff tears and SLAP lesions, and lateral epicondylitis of the elbow (also known as tennis elbow).
