Understanding the intricate anatomy of the shoulder is essential in effectively diagnosing and treating shoulder conditions. Our website provides detailed information about the shoulder joint, its bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. By familiarizing yourself with the shoulder’s anatomy, you can better understand your condition and available treatment options.
Dr. Sileo’s shoulder treatment services encompass diagnosing and managing various shoulder conditions. We have extensive experience in treating:
- Rotator Cuff Tears: When the tendons connecting the muscles to the bones in the shoulder become damaged or torn, it can result in pain, weakness, and a limited range of motion. Dr. Sileo offers surgical and non-surgical treatment options for rotator cuff tears tailored to each patient’s needs.
- Shoulder Impingement: This condition occurs when the space between the rotator cuff and the acromion bone narrows, causing pain and inflammation. Our team employs non-operative treatments such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and corticosteroid injections. In cases where surgery is necessary, we specialize in arthroscopic procedures.
- Shoulder Instability: If you experience recurrent dislocations or a persistent sensation of the shoulder “slipping out,” you may have shoulder instability. Our orthopedic surgeon will evaluate your condition and recommend appropriate treatments, including physical therapy, bracing, or surgical intervention.
- Frozen Shoulder: Adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder, causes stiffness and pain, limiting the shoulder’s range of motion. We offer various treatment options, including physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, and in some cases, manipulation under anesthesia.
Dr. Sileo’s shoulder treatment services encompass a wide range of procedures to restore shoulder function and alleviate pain. Some of the procedures Dr. Sileo specializes in include:
- Arthroscopy: This minimally invasive surgical technique allows us to visualize, diagnose, and treat various shoulder conditions. With small incisions and the use of a tiny camera, we can repair damaged tissues, remove bone spurs, and address other shoulder problems.
- Injections: In some instances, injections can be beneficial in reducing pain and inflammation in the aggravated shoulder. We offer corticosteroid injections, which provide targeted relief to the affected area. We also offer hyaluronic acid injections to improve joint lubrication and reduce discomfort. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are also frequently utilized to expedite healing and improve function.
At Dr. Michael Sileo’s office, we provide our patients with the highest standard of care. Our shoulder treatment services are designed to address the unique needs of each individual, offering a comprehensive approach to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
