Shoulder Disorders

We use them for them for throwing, lifting, combing our hair and hundreds of other acts we take for granted. When you find yourself with pain or injury from a shoulder disorder it’s something you simply can’t ignore. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery over seven million Americans each year seek medical help each year for pain with shoulder disorders.

Akron General's Orthopedic Center is a national leader in innovative care for shoulder disorders. While shoulder fracture and rotator cuff tears are among the most common shoulder disorders, our team is experienced in treating a variety of related disorders through both medical and surgical management. In fact, one of our skilled surgeons helped design the first prosthesis made specifically for shoulder fractures - an injury common among elderly adults.

Our staff is skilled at treating shoulder disorders including:

  • Shoulder instability
  • Shoulder fractures
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Shoulder reconstruction
  • Shoulder replacement
  • Tendon tears
