SUCCESS STORY

Baseball legend finds relief at St. Luke's.

After enduring years of pain from osteoarthritis in his left shoulder, baseball Hall-of-Famer and former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Steve "Lefty" Carlton turned to St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care for answers.

Conditions we treat

From injuries to arthritis, we address a range of shoulder conditions. Common issues like rotator cuff disease and fractures often lead to pain or limited mobility, making it essential to seek medical attention. We treat acute and chronic concerns, including:

  • Bicep tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractured or broken clavicle (collarbone)
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Glenohumeral (osteoarthritis)

Treatments

Many shoulder conditions can be treated without surgery. That's why we offer non-operative solutions like bracing, physical therapy, and tailored exercise programs. However, if you need surgery, our experienced surgeons are here for you. They’re skilled in performing both routine and complex procedures, such as:

  • Arthroscopic treatment of labral tears
  • Arthroscopic treatment of rotator cuff tears
  • Complex reconstruction
  • Open treatment of shoulder fractures
  • Reverse shoulder arthroplasty
  • Revision of failed total shoulder arthroplasty
  • Total shoulder arthroplasty
