According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, about 4 million
people in the United States seek medical care each year for shoulder sprain,
strain, dislocation, or other problems. Each year, shoulder problems account
for about 1.5 million visits to orthopedic surgeons. Our orthopedic surgeons
are experts in their field and treat conditions ranging from torn rotator
cuffs to shoulder fractures, as well as conditions of the elbow including
fracture, dislocation or osteoarthritis. They are widely recognized for
excellent patient outcomes when performing minimally invasive procedures,
such as total shoulder replacement with rotator cuff-sparing technique.
We also have one of the few orthopedic surgeons in the country performing
pectoral muscle tear repair surgery.
Programs & Procedures
The Anderson Family Orthopedic & Spine Center of Excellence at Jupiter
Medical Center offers a comprehensive rehabilitation program that provides
nonsurgical therapies to relieve pain and improve function, as well as
postoperative physical therapy to help patients recover after surgery.
Rehabilitation following treatment is the key to a successful, functional
outcome and pain relief. If surgery is performed, rehabilitation usually
begins in the inpatient setting and continues on an outpatient basis.
A dedicated orthopedic & spine navigator is available to all patients
to guide you through the entire process, providing education and support.
Our team includes surgeons, pain management specialists, anesthesiologists,
nurses and therapists. We are proud to have Joint Commission certification
in total joint replacements for hips, knees, shoulders and spine.
