Did You Know?

The clavicle (collarbone) is the most frequently broken bone in the body. .

The rotator cuff is not a single muscle, but rather a group of muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons that work together to help you move your arms. Arthroscopic rotator cuff procedures are significantly quicker and less painful than traditional open surgeries, with much shorter recovery times. The Center of Ortohpedic Excellence nearly always performs rotator cuff scopes on an out-patient basis.
