Shoulder Procedure For Sports Players

May 31, 2017

Kevin Plancher, MD, MS, FACS, FAAOS, New York-based sports orthopaedist and official orthopaedic surgeon for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams said:

"The shoulder is one of the most overused and underappreciated areas of the body. As the joint with the greatest range of motion, it is relied upon in nearly every sport, but most heavily in overhead sports such as tennis, baseball, volleyball, swimming, weight-lifting and even golf.

Yet, few of us pay the shoulder much attention until it's plagued with an injury. Then it becomes impossible to ignore. Patients whose shoulder injuries require surgery may benefit from a new, fully arthroscopic technique that can result in a shorter hospital stay and a quicker, fuller recovery."
