Incoming hand surgery trainees from Cleveland Clinic, UPMC, Ohio State and other medical centers attended Cleveland Clinic’s second annual Hand Fellows Boot Camp to review upper extremity fundamentals before beginning their fellowships.Read More
Our group’s recent study sought to determine the rate of successful preoperative synovial fluid aspiration and its effectiveness in diagnosis of PJI in patients undergoing revision shoulder arthroplasty.
Recent research from the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Hand Research Laboratory shows that biomechanical manipulation can reduce carpal tunnel pressure.
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following shoulder arthroplasty can present diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Cleveland Clinic researchers suggest that synovial fluid biomarkers offer improved diagnosis of infection.
This image-based case shows how 3-tesla MRI can increase diagnostic certainty through more thorough evaluation of intra-articular structures. In this case, that led to success with conservative shoulder pain management.

As part of Cleveland Clinic’s initiative to develop care paths for specific conditions, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is creating one to reduce variability in care for full-thickness rotator cuff tears.
It can detect subtle nerve abnormalities missed by MRI while also enabling real-time image-guided nerve hydrodissection. What’s not to like about ultrasound for nerve entrapment syndromes?
Discover our orthopaedic surgeons’ pioneering all-arthroscopic technique for placement of an extracellular matrix dermal allograft. Our early results reported here.
In elbow stiffness, selection of specific treatment protocols are guided by timing, severity, patient-specific factors and underlying pathology. Management should focus on improving motion.
Reverse total shoulder replacement is the best option for patients failing nonoperative management of severe arthritis and a large rotator cuff tear, particularly in patients who are in their 60s or older.
Cleveland Clinic Upper Extremity Center surgeons are using new technology that minimizes intraoperative guesswork, eliminates the need for freehand osteotomy and correction, and adds precision to the restoration of anatomy.
