Shoulder arthritis consultation for those who live away from Seattle

We often receive requests for consultation from individuals with shoulder arthritis or problems with previous shoulder joint replacements who live a long ways from Seattle.

While we cannot give medical advice without examining the shoulder "in person", we're willing to take a look at the medical records and x-rays to determine whether an evaluation in Seattle for a possible surgical reconstruction might be of benefit (we do not, however, offer medical-legal opinions).  The two x-ray views that are most helpful in this regard are shown here. If a consultation is desired regarding the possible need for surgical reconstruction, the records and x-ray images along with return contact information (phone, address, email) can be sent to
