World-Renowned Shoulder Leaders

Shoulder doctors and surgeons are fellowship-trained or specialty-trained providers who diagnose and treat injuries and conditions affecting any part of the shoulder, including the shoulder blade, collarbone, tendons, and humerus. These doctors and surgeons possess a comprehensive understanding of this ball-and-socket joint and are highly skilled at pinpointing the cause of shoulder pain. They also offer a wide range of nonsurgical treatments and surgeries, such as rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic surgery, and shoulder replacement.

At Carrell Clinic, all of our world-renowned leaders are board-certified and fellowship-trained experts within their field of subspecialty as well as fully trained general orthopaedic specialists. This includes our shoulder doctors, Dr. Wayne Burkhead, Dr. John Baker, Dr. Daniel Cooper, Dr. Daniel Worrel, Dr. Mark Muller, Dr. Todd Moen, Dr. Michael Khair, Dr. Field Scovell, and Dr. Jason Klein. Our shoulder specialists’ advanced training and certifications attest to their skill and the profound dedication they have toward the treatment and surgical care of their shoulder patients.
