Arthroscopy Worldwide helps to enhance the interconnectedness of the global medical community, and enables us to improve the accessibility of quality care to the neediest individuals.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
La Peer Health Systems is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, http://www.ShoulderSurgeryMD.com, for a sub-division of the Beverly Hills surgery center devoted to the comprehensive treatment of shoulder conditions, known as the Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence.
The Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence houses a team of orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine physicians trained in the most advanced treatments for acute injury and chronic conditions of the shoulder.
“The anatomy of the shoulder joint makes it highly susceptible to a variety of injuries,” explained Dr. Eric Millstein, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and co-director of the Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence. “When any number of structures in the shoulder joint are injured, people often experience pain in their shoulder, back, or arm until the damage is resolved with proper treatment.”
Patients at our state-of-the-art outpatient center in Beverly Hills receive the most advanced treatment possible for their shoulder injuries. Our orthopedic surgeons routinely perform shoulder arthroscopy to repair soft tissue damage and improve alignment of bones within the shoulder joint. Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces the risk of complications and speeds up recovery compared with traditional open surgery.
In addition to providing the highest quality of care for our patients, the Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence is dedicated to giving back to the community. Our physicians travel to under-developed regions around the globe through Arthroscopy Worldwide, a non-profit organization founded by La Peer orthopedic surgeon Steven Meier, MD.
Arthroscopy Worldwide is dedicated to bringing minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques to developing regions of the world, including South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The goal of this organization is to train doctors of developing countries advanced arthroscopic procedures, so that their patients can experience the best possible outcomes. Arthroscopy Worldwide also helps hospitals in these regions acquire the necessary equipment through generous monetary donations.
“Arthroscopy Worldwide helps to enhance the interconnectedness of the global medical community, and enables us to improve the accessibility of quality care to the neediest individuals,” said Dr. Meier, co-director of the Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence.
The Shoulder Surgery Center of Excellence is directed by two renowned orthopedic surgeons, Eric Millstein, MD and Steven Meier, MD. Seven equally talented surgeons, including the current chief of orthopedic medicine at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, perform shoulder procedures at our Beverly Hills surgery center. Our board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine physicians include Joseph Isaacson, MD; Melvin Nutig, MD; Peter Newton, MD; Andrew Weiss, MD; Jason Snibbe, MD; Sonu Ahluwalia, MD; and Rajan Patel MD. Each surgeon is expertly trained in the most advanced reconstructive and minimally invasive shoulder procedures.
