Our Approach to Diagnosis & Treatment

Your surgery might only require an outpatient office visit, where dedicated Shoulder and Elbow Center nurses and staff will care for you. If your surgery requires an inpatient stay, our highly regarded nursing and therapy team will offer round-the-clock care in our spacious rooms on a designated unit.

The Center's anesthesia team is a national leader in acute pain management for shoulder and elbow procedures. The team specializes in ultrasound-guided upper extremity regional nerve blocks, which provides you with prolonged pain relief, while allowing for a more rapid emergence from general anesthesia and fewer side effects.
