What Sets Us Apart 

At NYU Langone’s Joint Preservation and Arthritis Center, specialists in orthopaedics, rheumatology, and rehabilitation at the Hospital for Joint Diseases and Center for Musculoskeletal Care collaborate under one roof to diagnose and treat osteoarthritis of the shoulder, a condition that causes progressive damage to the soft tissues and bones in the shoulder joint. 

Over time, osteoarthritis leads to joint pain and stiffness and may limit the range of motion in the shoulder, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks. Based on the results of advanced diagnostic imaging tests, our physicians and surgeons provide comprehensive medical or surgical treatment customized to relieve your symptoms and help you return to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.

Treatment at NYU Langone

If doctors diagnose osteoarthritis of the shoulder before there is significant damage to the joint, they may recommend pain relief medication, therapeutic injections, acupuncture, and physical therapy. If shoulder pain persists despite these treatments and affects your ability to participate in daily activities, our doctors can discuss how surgery might help you.
