Shoulder pain and stiffness can be the result of a recent sports injury or simply from daily wear and tear. Treatment of your shoulder problem requires a careful history and physical exam. Imaging techniques such as digital X-rays, CT scans or a detailed MRI may help further define your problem.
A majority of shoulder problems can be relieved without surgery. Physicians and advanced practitioners with Springfield Clinic Orthopedics focus on non-operative solutions to your orthopedic problems whenever we can. But if surgery is necessary, our expert surgeons will perform the procedure with care.

Properly diagnosing a hip problem can be instrumental to relieving other joint and body pain you may be experiencing.

Our specialists will develop a treatment plan that will explore non-operative options for your care first. But if surgery is necessary, our expert surgeons will perform any procedure you need with care.
Conditions/treatments: hip arthroscopy, fracture care, hip resurfacing, total hip replacement
