A unique combination of flexibility and strength makes the shoulder one of our most complex joints. Unfortunately, it also places it at increased risk of injury. Trauma, disease, and genetic conditions can all negatively affect the function of the shoulder.
Dr. Rudman has a superior knowledge of the intricate anatomy of the shoulder and surrounding tissues. He excels in a range of treatments and surgeries, including:
- Rotator cuff repair, which may be used to re-attach the tendon to the end of the humerus, or trim and smooth damaged tissue.
- Shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement, which uses biocompatible materials to fully replace the ball and socket.
- Acromioclavicular joint reconstruction to repair separations.
- Procedures to correct shoulder instability, including Bankart and superior labral anterior-posterior (SLAP) tear repairs.
- Treatment of clavicle fractures, which typically consists of internal fixation.
Dr. Rudman is also renowned for his expertise in advanced surgical methods, like the Latarjet procedure, which addresses recurring instability due to bone loss at the front of the shoulder socket. He is one of only a few surgeons in the area who has been trained to perform this innovative surgery.
Minimally Invasive Techniques
As a recognized expert in arthroscopic procedures, Dr. Rudman prefers minimally invasive techniques to set the stage for faster healing. Using arthroscopic surgical techniques, Dr. Rudman can use a small number of tiny incisions to gain full access to the treatment site. Patient benefits are numerous, including minimized scarring and post-operative discomfort.

In addition to Dr. Rudman's training and technical expertise, he genuinely cares for his patients and takes great satisfaction in providing effective treatment. Since he regularly enjoys cycling, mountain biking, golfing, skiing, and hiking, he strongly believes that an active lifestyle enhances your quality of life, and he is passionate about helping his patients return to the activities they love. He will use the latest techniques and technology to pinpoint the precise cause of your shoulder pain, and recommend the treatment you need to achieve relief and restore function.
