Common conditions

Dislocated shoulder
A dislocated shoulder, also known as shoulder instability, is a condition in which the humeral head (ball) comes out of the glenoid (socket). Our Sports Medicine experts treat shoulder dislocation, common in young athletes, and create a care plan to help prevent future dislocations.
