Host: Brian P. McDonough, MD, FAAFP
Shoulder pain is one of the most common presentations in primary care, but the most proper workups to determine causes and develop effective treatment plans are not universally known. Joining Dr. Brian McDonough to update clinicians on common shoulder injuries, the patient histories that often correspond with them, and best treatment practices for each problem, is Dr. Kelton Burbank, orthopedic surgeon and the Worcester Medical Center in Worcester, MA. Dr. Burbank is the orthopedic consultant for the UMass-Amherst men’s hockey team and the Massachusetts representative to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. He is also president of the New England Orthopedic Society.
