Of the nearly 8 million shoulder injuries treated annually in the United States, almost half are rotator cuff repairs—and most of these injuries are treated by orthopedic sports medicine specialists. Therefore, it is essential that today's orthopedists specializing in sports medicine have a solid understanding of the most commonly performed shoulder repair procedures. This volume in the Disorders Of The Shoulder set covers the full spectrum of shoulder procedures—including open and arthroscopic procedures.
