Clinic Hours




Repetitive shoulder movements or activities that require overhead motions can lead to Rotator Cuff Syndrome. The treatment depends on the cause of injury. Pain from degenerations can be treated with conservative treatment. For severely torn rotator cuff, arthroscopic surgery is used to treat the condition. The method leaves a small scar with fast recovery period.
