Anatomy of the Shoulder

To better understand Shoulder Surgery, it is important to understand the anatomy of the shoulder and how the shoulder works. The shoulder is made up of three bones, the clavicle (collar bone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humerus (arm bone), which are all held together by muscles, tendons, ligaments, and a joint capsule. The muscles and joints of the shoulder make it the most mobile joint in the human body.

Plano Orthopedic wants our patients to have a complete education of how the shoulder works before learning why a shoulder surgery might be right for you. Our Plano Orthopedic doctors, Dr. Sutker, Dr. Barber, Dr. Lund, Dr. Troop and Dr. McGarry all specialize in shoulder surgery and shoulder injuries.

After your doctor’s visit and diagnosis we hope you can find the education or video of the shoulder surgery procedure that was recommended to you both helpful and informative as to what to expect and know about the shoulder surgery you are going to receive.
