What treatments are available for shoulder disorders?
Dr. Vidal uses the most up-to-date techniques for treating a variety of shoulder disorders. Often, he is able treat many conditions non-surgically, offering patients a conservative approach whenever possible. If non-surgical treatment does not eliminate pain or other symptoms, he may suggest a surgical alternative.
Many of Dr. Vidal’s surgical treatments can be done using a minimally invasive technique called Arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery techniques use a small camera and small, specialized instruments inserted into the shoulder to perform the surgery within the joint. Arthroscopic surgery has a quicker healing time, less chance of infection and can help patients return to the work and sports they love in a quicker timeframe than traditional open surgery.
