The shoulder moves more than any joint in the body and is a marvel because of its structure and complexity. It’s not surprising that it is the source of discomfort for millions of people.

The foot, with more than 180 bones, joints, ligaments and muscles, is one of the body’s most complex systems. The ankle is equally intricate, and even a minor problem can affect the entire body. The team at Orthopaedic Associates has years of experience with treatments ranging from ankle arthroscopy to total joint surgery to fracture reconstructions.
