WHAT WE DO
Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Sports Injuries
Complex Shoulder Conditions
Minimally Invasive Treatment
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that uses small incisions and a tiny camera/video to treat many injuries of the shoulder. Many sports injuries result in a labral tear or rotator cuff tendon tear which are effectively treated arthroscopically today. Some salvage procedures for irreparable rotator cuff tears such as superior capsular reconstruction or subacromial balloon placement can also be performed arthroscopically today. Dr. Costouros has treated elite athletes at all levels, from the recreational athlete to collegiate, olympic, and professional athletes.

Rotator Cuff Tears and Impingement
For patients less than 61 years old, the total estimated lifetime societal savings of the approximately 250,000 rotator cuff repairs performed annually in the United States is $3.44 billion, according to a study of the value of rotator cuff repair published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.Read More...

Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: Component Size Prediction with 3-Dimensional Pre-Operative Digital Planning
The rate, complexity, and cost of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) continues to grow. Technology has advanced pre-operative templating. Reducing cost of TSA has positive impact for the patient, manufacturer, and hospital. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of implant size selection based on 3-D templating. Our hypothesis was that pre-operative templating would enable accurate implant prediction within one size.
Eclipse stemless shoulder prosthesis vs. Univers II shoulder prosthesis: a multicenter, prospective randomized controlled trial
Total shoulder arthroplasty is an accepted treatment for glenohumeral osteoarthritis. The Arthrex Eclipse shoulder prosthesis is a stemless, canal-sparing humeral prosthesis with bone ingrowth capacity on the trunnion, as well as through the fenestrated hollow screw, that provides both diaphyseal and metaphyseal load sharing and fixation.
