Shoulder Arthroscopy & Rotator Cuff Repair

Shoulder arthroscopy is a procedure that uses several small “poke-hole” incisions to evaluate and treat shoulder problems. While it is an advanced technique that requires specialized training, arthroscopy allows the surgeon to better see and evaluate your rotator cuff problems and repair them, all while avoiding large open incisions.

Dr. Nelson trained with the world’s foremost experts in arthroscopy and rotator cuff problems at the world-renowned Shoulder Unit at the Centre Orthopedique Santy in Lyon, France. Dr. Nelson is an expert in the physical examination, evaluation, and arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff injuries. He is one of the few orthopaedic providers in the Raleigh area to use in-office ultrasound to evaluate for rotator cuff tears, which can help avoid sometimes unnecessary and often costly imaging studies such as MRIs.
