Put your trust in a surgeon who has sub-specialty training in treating shoulder injuries. We see countless athletes involved in sports that use the upper extremity such as tennis, lacrosse, and baseball for rotator cuff injuries, arthritis, instability, and tendonitis.
Leading Edge Rotator Cuff Repair and Shoulder Replacement
Rotator cuff injuries are the most common athletic shoulder injuries. Non-surgical options are always the first option. However, if you require surgery, our team offers a minimally invasive option, meaning smaller incisions, less disturbance of the shoulder muscles, and less pain after surgery. As patients experience less pain, they tend to do better during their physical therapy, meaning a better outcome.
Additionally, we are leaders in shoulder replacement, following evidence-based practices for the most effective outcomes. Reverse total shoulder replacement is a popular option that works for some patients who may have had a shoulder replacement previously and are still experiencing pain or have continuing pain from arthritis and a rotator cuff tear. The procedure allows you to use the deltoid muscle to lift your arm rather than the rotator cuff.
Supporting You Along the Way
Whether you are having a repair for a rotator cuff, an arthroscopic procedure to clean up the shoulder joint, or a total joint replacement, our collective team is here to support you. We give you all of the information you need at the start to make the best decision to fit your lifestyle and your goals for getting back to sports. After surgery, we offer physical therapy options to give you the best outcome possible. Our nurses are here to answer your questions along the way as well, even down to how to get dressed after a shoulder surgery.

Better Than Before Surgery
Dr. Carr was the right surgeon for me. He described all possible treatment options, talked with me about outcomes and how many ACL surgeries he's performed. I credit Steve Vincente, my physical therapist, in getting me on the road to recovery. His positive energy made all the difference. I am happy to say my knee is not only as good as it was before, it's better.Hannah Kearney / 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist and World Champion freestyle skier
No Big Deal
The most surprising thing about having a complete hip replacement was that it really wasn't a big deal. I'd say all through the journey, from surgery to recovery, you've got to remember it takes some effort. There is some discomfort, but it was well worth it and I won't hesitate again to have my right one done.Ted Davis / Total Hip Patient
What Surprised Me the Most
I didn't know I could do what I can do now and that's what surprised me the most. At my age and with the injuries I had, I thought I was done. Being able to sit straight up is a big deal. Being able to nod my head, twist it side-to-side...that's a really, really big deal. I wasn't able to do those things when I got here.Derek Hampton / Functional Restoration Program graduate
Achieving Your Goals
Now I know I can go out and rip turns and feel awesome and feel completely normal again. I felt like the sports medicine department can relate to you...and help you achieve the goals that you want to get back to, and my goals were to get back into ski racing and back to lacrosse, and I've done that thus far.Gunnar / ACL Repair Surgery
