Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Routman "Most shoulder problems can and should be treated non-surgically. When it comes time to make a decision about surgical care for a shoulder problem from the most basic to complex case, my approach is to treat each patient and each problem as unique and special. The most advanced treatment and technology is available to any patient and years of shoulder reconstruction expertise are behind my reconstructions."
