He and his experienced team are dedicated to educating patients and providing effective treatments to promote recovery and healing.

Orthopedic Shoulder Conditions Treated

Shoulders that function correctly and comfortably are essential to completing even the most basic of tasks. Our shoulders are composed of a number of small muscles (the rotator cuff muscles), as well as ball-and-socket joints. The rotator cuff protects the joints, and, in turn, the joints promote the flexibility and stability of the shoulder. Since the shoulders are in use so often and many shoulder actions are repetitive (such as those from certain jobs or sports), injuries and conditions involving this part of the body are very common. Whether you are experiencing a nagging pain that comes and goes or an injury that has rendered your shoulder unusable, Dr. Roger Chams can offer the treatment you need to get back to feeling your best.

Dr. Chams is experienced in treating a variety of shoulder conditions, including:

Orthopedic Knee Conditions Treated

In terms of the joints that keep our bodies moving, the knee is one of the largest and most complex. This hinge joint is essential for movement, playing a crucial role in our body’s ability to function every day. The knee is composed of a number of bones, bursae (fluid-filled sacs), ligaments, and tendons. Some tendons (like the patellar tendon) reinforce the structure of the knee while others ligaments (like the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL) provide stability. All of the components of the knee must be fully functional and healthy in order for the knee to work properly. Knee pain and injuries are very common and can arise from something as simple as regular wear and tear to an injury or medical condition. Whether you are experiencing knee pain as you age or you have suffered a knee injury playing your favorite sport, Dr. Chams will work with you to provide relief.

Debilitating knee pain can arise from a number of conditions and types of injury. Dr. Chams and his staff are dedicated to effectively treating the following causes of knee pain and discomfort:
