The shoulder is one of the most frequently injured joints and its pathologies require the knowledge and dedication of an experienced and specialized medical team.
Shouldersurgery treats injured shoulders by repairing damaged muscles, connective tissue or joints that occur from traumatic injury or from where the shoulder has been overused.

Description of the Shoulder Unit
The shoulder joint is composed of three bones: the clavicle, the shoulder blade and the humerus. The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the body. It can be unstable because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain in a stable or normal position, the shoulder must be anchored by muscles, tendons and ligaments.
This Unit has a special concern for functional recovery after surgery that allows the full reincorporation of the patient to their usual activities and sports.
