Pain and poor function can make it hard to do everyday tasks. At our Shoulder and Elbow Program, you'll get relief from arm pain. Our orthopaedic doctors have the upper extremity expertise and skill to fix a range of issues, including common shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears and arthritis pain. We have multiple convenient locations throughout Los Angeles, so you can find care close to home.

Our Approach to Upper Extremity Care

When it comes to arm pain and injuries, our orthopaedic doctors never take a one-size-fits-all approach. Your diagnosis is just one factor doctors consider when deciding on a treatment plan. Our specialists also think about what led to your condition, how long you've had it, your lifestyle and previous treatments. This personalized approach helps you avoid surgery (when possible) while matching you with the most effective therapies.

Other highlights of our program include:

Upper Extremity Expertise

Our shoulder and elbow surgeons have the highest level of training in upper limb care. Patients experience better arm function and less pain, no matter their condition or age. We also have surgeons who are members of renowned organizations, including the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES). The mission of ASES is to foster scientific advances and enhance the study of shoulder and elbow surgery.

Superior Nursing Care

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has awarded our nursing team with Magnet Recognition®, the gold standard for nursing care. Our patients have more one-on-one time with nurses and experience faster recoveries and higher satisfaction.

Active Research Program

Our orthopaedic doctors are constantly improving current treatments and developing better therapies. Because of their research focus, you have access to the latest techniques, implants and technology to treat shoulder and elbow conditions.

Comprehensive Treatments

You have access to nonsurgical treatments, such as cortisone shots and physical therapy. We also provide advanced surgeries, including anatomic and reverse total shoulder replacements and Tommy John surgery.

Team-Based Care

Our orthopaedic doctors—including experts in surgery, trauma and upper extremity care—have regular multidisciplinary meetings to discuss patients and improve care. Our orthopaedic surgeons also work closely with physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists to make sure your care is safe, consistent and effective.
