Why Choose a Duke Shoulder Specialist
Your Duke shoulder specialist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s tailored to your individual needs and goals, so you can get back to the activities and sports you enjoy.
Our orthopaedic surgeons have completed fellowship training in shoulder surgery and, as a team, perform thousands of shoulder arthroscopies every year. Research has shown that surgical outcomes are better when doctors or hospitals perform higher volumes of a procedure. You can see what procedures our shoulder surgeons perform most often on their profile pages.
