Dr. Elbayar is committed to providing comprehensive care to all his patients. Through both nonsurgical and surgical methods, his goal is to help patients return to their preinjury performance level, whether that be competitive athletics or backyard softball with the kids.
As a native Long Islander, competitive athletics were a big part of my upbringing. As a former competitive soccer and tennis player, and now an avid weekend warrior, I understand how upsetting and derailing an injury can be to an athlete of any level. For this reason, I feel incredibly fortunate to be an orthopedic surgery sports medicine specialist focusing on disorders of the knee, hip, shoulder, and elbow.
My goal as an orthopedic surgeon is to provide comprehensive care to all my patients. I believe in the importance of educating patients about their injuries so they can be active participants in their treatment decisions. Through both nonsurgical and surgical methods, my goal is always to help patients return to their preinjury performance level, whether that be competitive athletics or backyard softball with the kids.
Total shoulder replacement surgery is performed to relieve symptoms of severe shoulder pain and disability due to arthritis. In this surgery, the damaged articulating parts of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with artificial prostheses. Replacement of both the humeral head and the socket is called a total shoulder replacement.
