FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Leesburg, VA) According to AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons), there has been a five-fold increase in the total number of serious elbow and shoulder injuries for youth softball and baseball players since 2000. The majority of these injuries involve damage to the tendons, ligaments, and muscles, rather than the bones in the shoulder.
In an effort to provide better treatment options to those injured, Countryside Orthopaedics has recently welcomed a new board certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in shoulder arthroplasty surgery and elbow surgery and reconstruction to their team. Dr. Adam J. Lorenzetti provides shoulder and elbow reconstruction and well as other treatments for those suffering injuries.
“We are excited to have Dr. Lorenzetti as part of our team,” stated Raymond Lower. “Our team has a reputation for providing surgical and medical musculoskeletal care, and with the addition of Dr. Lorenzetti to our team, we are able to offer even more specialized treatments.”
Shoulder and elbow problems can develop slowly in athletes who are involved with intense activity or training. They are most commonly seen in baseball catchers and pitchers, but they are also seen with athletes who are involved with any type of overhead sport, such as track and field events, swimming, volleyball, and softball.
“Dr. Lorenzetti brings unique expertise in both elbow and shoulder surgeries that are going to be extremely beneficial for our patients,” continued Lower. “He has several publications, research, and presentations and specializes in elbow surgery and reconstruction, as well as shoulder arthroplasty surgery.”
With the addition of a new doctor, Countryside Orthopaedics is more equipped than ever before to handle serious elbow and shoulder injuries that people of all ages suffer. Regardless of whether your injury is sport related or is a result of some other type of injury, Countryside Orthopaedics can help you with the treatment options that can be found by visiting the website.
