Shoulder & Upper Extremity

The shoulder joint is one of the largest and most complex joints of the human body. Because the humorous fits fairly loosely into the joint, it allows the shoulder to have a wide range of motion. It also makes it vulnerable to injury. At AOS, we treat a number of shoulder and upper extremity conditions, including rotator cuff tears and injuries, and more.

Joint Replacement

Joint replacement is the replacement of all or part of a joint to improve function, mobility and strength. Joint arthritis, which can limit mobility and reduce quality of life, is the most common condition leading to joint replacement. Advanced Ortho and Spine provides partial and total knee replacement and partial and total hip replacement, including minimally invasive, muscle-sparing joint replacement to help patients get back to living.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Cook recently replaced my right hip. He did the left 3 years ago. Love this doc! He is so professional and had an easy going bedside manner. He explains everything in understandable language. He even called me with MRI results when he was on vacation. The staff, from the front desk, nurses/assistants, appt dest and PT crew are helpful and caring. Dr. Eby worked me in a day Dr. Cook was not in the office and was equally as caring and professional.

When our daughter broke her arm I was amazed at the level of compassion from the moment we checked in to the day we got the cast removed! Thanks AOS!!

I am very well pleased with this group. I have visited four of their doctors for different things. Dr. Patel operated on my neck several years ago. Dr. Eby takes care of my back/leg pain. Dr. LaDouceur just operated on my hand. Great job, can't tell it was operated on. Dr. Passmore fixed my foot fracture. Finally physical therapy group was amazing. You can't go wrong with AOS.

I absolutely love this place. They are always courteous and professional. You actually get a live person when you call in; and they get me in quick, no matter what my issue is. Dr. LaDouceur knew exactly what was wrong with my shoulder at my very first appointment. After struggling for 3 months I finally found a place that fixed my shoulder. The surgery was quick and they've been wonderful in following up with my progress. My son is also a patient here, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. The entire staff are warm and friendly at every visit.
