Dr. Hwang recently talked with Kelly Cordes on-air for WJON’s It Matters segment. He talked about the wide range of ages who need shoulder care, and what the most common shoulder ailments are. From Rotator Cuff surgeries to injuries like a “frozen shoulder,” he covered what shoulder care from St. Cloud Orthopedics might entail. Specifically, Dr. Hwang talked about how rare it is for a patient to require surgery—most conditions can be treated with physical therapy, medications, and other conservative care options. If surgery becomes necessary, he talks with the patient to help them understand their options, helps them connect with their primary care physician, and sees them after surgery for recovery care. Learn more about same-day surgery from our team, what his extensive training has been like, paraplegic care, preventative shoulder care tips, and the importance of physical therapy by listening to his segment below!
