Our orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists have been integral in the development of universal protocols for post-operative and non-operative shoulder rehabilitation for the Calgary zone. These protocols aim to improve and standardize shoulder care and provide health care practitioners the resources to help guide their patients through their rehabilitation.

Post-Operative Shoulder Stabilization Protocol
Post-Operative Posterior Shoulder Stabilization Protocol – coming soon!
Post-Operative Total and Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Protocol – coming soon!
Non Operative Shoulder Rehabilitation Protocol – coming soon!
Our clinicians have developed resources to help guide the rehabilitation for common elbow conditions, such as lateral epicondylitis. These evidence-based guidelines incorporate patient education and focus on an active rehabilitation program.
Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow) Guidelines
Medial Epicondylitis – coming soon!
Dr. David Sheps and physiotherapist, Colleen Kuntze, are the co-leads for the Shoulder Working Group within the Alberta Health Services Bone and Joint Strategic Clinical Network. This initiative is focusing on the development of a care pathway for the assessment and management of shoulder conditions in Alberta.
This project is a culmination of research evidence and consensus recommendations of 55 health care providers across Alberta, including orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists, physiatrists, sport medicine physicians and physiotherapists. This work is nearing completion and will be posted here soon!
Our on-site interventional suite allows us to provide patients with a wide range of range of pain management options. Our collaborative care model with the radiologists and pain management team allows for targeted and quality care with timely access and comprehensive follow up for optimization of a patient’s recovery.
Our pain management services are accessible through our assessment team or directly by physician referral. You can use the requisition here to refer your patients directly for these services.
