Pioneering contributions to the field of orthopaedics have been a long tradition at the Center for Shoulder, Elbow and Sports Medicine, dating back to the 1950s. That’s when the original Shoulder Service at our hospital was founded and led by the renowned “father of modern shoulder surgery,” Charles S. Neer, MD, whose many contributions to the specialty dramatically changed the direction of orthopedic surgery.
Today, the Center continues that tradition of developing new advances for the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder, elbow and sports-related injuries. Its Arthroscopy Center, under the Direction of William N. Levine, MD, is renowned for the quality of investigations being conducted in a state-of-the-art laboratory where physician-scientists perform anatomic dissection, anatomic research, and arthroscopic research studies.
