Greetings readers.

This blog is now two years old and has passed the 200,000 page view milestone.

It will provide basic information on shoulder arthritis and it will provide updates on recent important published articles related to the topic of shoulder arthritis and rotator cuff tears. In terms of disclosure, it is important to note that we have no relationships with any manufacturers of any orthopaedic products and endeavor to provide an unbiased view of the published evidence along with illustrative cases from our own practice. 

The five posts highlighted at the top of each page show the most visited posts for the past week, so you can see what other folks are viewing.

You can use the "Topics" feature at upper right to finding topics of interest or the "Search This Blog" function to find specific content. If you would like to view the blog in a language other than English, please use the "Translate" function.

You should be aware of our colleagues at the Arthritis Foundation who do so much to support individuals who live with arthritis!

Steve Lippitt, my good friend in Akron, has provided the art work for almost all the figures in this blog, including the one at the bottom indicating (cleverly) the safe side and the 'suicide' for shoulder surgery.

Best wishes and thanks for your visit
