Comprehensive Shoulder & Elbow Care


Does it hurt to swing a tennis racket or golf club? Has shoulder pain taken the fun out of gardening? Placentia-Linda Hospital provides comprehensive care for shoulders that hurt, from diagnosis of the problem to treatment and rehabilitation to help you regain a fuller range of function. Orthopedic physicians, nurses, and other specialists work together closely as a team to provide these patient care services:

  • Advanced diagnostic imaging to assess the root cause of shoulder stiffness or inflammation
  • Medical and surgical treatments customized for each patient for conditions ranging from fractures and dislocations to bursitis and tendonitis
  • Minimally invasive surgical procedures and shoulder replacement procedures for faster recovery
  • A complete rehabilitation program to facilitate movement and recovery
  • Support from our team of professionals who will guide you through your shoulder care journey from the very beginning to treatment and recovery
We customize your care plan. Anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat, or massage may address your shoulder problem, but if surgery is needed, Placentia-Linda offers minimally invasive surgery options. All-inclusive care also embraces physical therapy, pain management, and rehabilitation services.
