Shoulder Specialist Practicing Near Shepherdsville, KY

A shoulder specialist is a physician who focuses their practice exclusively on diagnosing and treating shoulder injuries. Specialty care is important for the shoulder, an intricate joint that functions through a complex interplay of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Because the shoulder is also highly mobile and inherently unstable, it is susceptible to injury.

Through extensive training and experience, a shoulder specialist has acquired an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the shoulder joint and therefore can provide focused and effective care. You can consult with a shoulder specialist at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near Shepherdsville, Kentucky.

Do You Need to See a Shoulder Specialist?

Shoulder pain can occur for many reasons, including arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, instability, impingement, rotator cuff tears, sprains, and fractures. To ensure appropriate treatment, an accurate diagnosis is essential. In general, you should see a shoulder specialist if you experience:

  • Sudden, intense shoulder pain
  • Pain that radiates from your shoulder to your elbow
  • Persistent shoulder stiffness
  • A grinding sensation in your shoulder during movement
  • Difficulty moving your shoulder or arm
  • Arm muscle weakness

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
