The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, which makes it susceptible to injury. Many people are prone to shoulder injuries, whether it is through work, a physical activity or an unexpected fall. Some injuries are minor, but often times major injuries result in a surgical procedure. Dr. Anthony Romeo performs approximately 500 shoulder surgeries per year, and is one of the nation's leading orthopedic surgeons specializing in the surgical treatment of shoulder and elbow conditions.
Elbow injuries are commonly caused by a physical activity and repetitive use. Baseball, golf and tennis related injuries are some of the most common causes of elbow related injuries. Dr. Anthony Romeo specializes in Tommy John Surgery and elbow arthroscopy surgeries used to treat medial and lateral epicondylitis.
Aside from specializing in the surgical treatment of the shoulder and elbow, Dr. Anthony Romeo performs a number of surgeries, including scapulothoracic fusions for muscular dystrophy, tendon transfers for scapular winging, pectoralis repairs for tendon ruptures and more.
