Conditions We Treat:
Rotator Cuff Tear
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 tendons that surround the top of the shoulder bone (humerus). Over time, these tendons may become damaged due to small micro-tears that eventually weaken the tendon and cause pain and weakness in the shoulder. This injury may also occur as result of a sudden impact or sports injury.
Separated Shoulder
Also known as an Acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation, this injury occurs when the joint is pushed out if its natural position within the scapula. This injury is often confused with a shoulder dislocation as both cause pain and a visible deformity of the shoulder. A separated shoulder is most often the result of a sudden accident that causes the shoulder joint to be forced downward and out of place.
Frozen Shoulder Syndrome
Also known as Adhesive Capsulitis, this painful condition is progressive and is caused by inflammation in the joint capsule of the shoulder. It may be triggered by only a mild injury to the shoulder but over time cause severe and persistent pain, weakness, stiffness and loss of motion in the shoulder.   Your treatment will depend on which of the four phases this injury has progressed into.
Elbow Tendonitis (Golfer’s / Tennis Elbow)
Elbow Tendonitis can occur in the tendons on the inside or outside of the elbow and, despite the name, is not exclusive to golfers or tennis players. The most common cause of this injury is activities or occupations that require repetitive use of the elbow, wrist and hand. When the tendons become irritated, you may feel pain on the inside or outside of the elbow as well as weakness in the hands.
Ulnar Ligament Injury
The UCL is a small triangular ligament that connects the ulna (wrist bone) to the humerus (upper arm) and prevents the elbow from bending too far to either side. This ligament is especially important for athletes whose positions require an overhand throwing motion as it allows for control and torque. Over time, this ligament can become damaged due to overuse and can eventually tear. Once the ligament is torn the elbow may become painful and unstable.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common nerve compression disorder in the hand. It occurs due to pressure on the median nerve at the level of the wrist. It is most often idiopathic (unknown cause secondary to tendonitis) in nature and can be aggravated by repetitive activities or even pregnancy.. It may be treated with bracing, vitamin B6 and cortisone injection. If these modalities do not provide relief, then arthroscopic surgery may be considered.

I just wanted to thank you for seeing my daughter. I spoke with several people after our visit and told them how kind you were, and the great advice you offered us.
Sincerely, Mary

I highly recommend Dr. Petrosini. He performed ACL and meniscus repair 3 months ago and I am doing great.  Dr. Petrosini is wonderful. He takes his time with you, explains everything in great detail, and answers all your questions. I’ve never once felt rushed during an appointment.
