Sustaining a shoulder injury can not only be painful, it can also restrict your range of motion and limit you from participating in your normal daily activities. If you are seeking treatment for a sports injury, you can turn to Florida Medical Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine & Spine. Dr. Brian Domby is a skilled and experienced orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine physician who specializes in treating men and women of all ages. In fact, Dr. Domby received his fellowship training in Sports Medicine and Shoulder Injury care, so you can choose him with confidence knowing that he’s truly an expert in this particular field.
Dr. Domby is experienced in treating the following conditions:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Shoulder instability
- Labral tears
- Biceps tendonitis
- Frozen shoulder
- Acromioclavicular joint (AC) separation
- Atraumatic multidirectional instability
For most patients with a shoulder injury, typically, Dr. Domby suggests beginning with conservative (non-surgical) treatment options and seeing if they yield any positive results. Conservative treatment options include utilizing a sling, participating in physical therapy, receiving steroid injections, and taking anti-inflammatory medications. However, sometimes more aggressive treatment options are needed to remedy a shoulder injury. In these cases, Dr. Domby may suggest a procedure such as a fusion, shoulder replacement, or minimally invasive arthroscopic rotator cuff repair surgery. Rotator cuff surgery, which is one of Dr. Domby’s particular specialties, involves:
- Inserting a small, lighted camera through a tiny incision to gain a clear view of the joint interior
- Eradicating the source of any joint irritants, if possible and warranted
- Mending a tendon tear or reattaching the tendon to a bone in the joint
