Shoulder and Elbow
The most experienced team in the area
Pulling a sweater on over your head, picking up a small child, or carrying a bag of groceries—these everyday tasks become exceedingly difficult when you are dealing with elbow or shoulder pain.
Aurora BayCare’s orthopedic team specializes in providing innovative treatments for shoulder problems. We treat both degenerative shoulder issues that occur with age as well as sports-related shoulder injuries.
Our treatment programs include performance training, physical therapy, surgical management, and personalized rehabilitation plans.
Ahead of the Curve
Our surgeons use the latest techniques, including minimally invasive methods that reduce pain and improve recovery time. In fact, we are the first (and only) provider in the Green Bay area to offer reverse total shoulder replacement. This revolutionary new procedure allows an experienced surgeon to repair shoulder problems that were previously considered untreatable.

Some local surgeons only do two or three shoulder surgeries a year. At Aurora BayCare, we do far more. In fact, we do more shoulder surgeries than many other area orthopedic groups combined.
Research shows that patient outcomes are tied to a surgeon’s experience. Patients experience fewer complications, better results, and more cost-effective care when shoulder surgery is performed by a surgeon who does the procedure frequently.
Focused On Your Goals
For many shoulder and elbow problems, medication and physical therapy are the best treatment. Our orthopedic specialists exhaust non-surgical treatment options first. But if you have chronic shoulder pain that cannot be resolved through conservative methods, we offer the most experienced shoulder surgery team in the area.
Above all, we are committed to helping you regain your full range of motion. Whether you want to return to the playing field or get back to work, our physicians have the skill and experience to get you there in the safest, fastest manner possible.
With the exception of shoulder replacements, most shoulder surgeries are performed arthroscopically.
