Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Kanel Makes His First Appearance On The Show For A Talk On Shoulder Dislocations And Other Shoulder Injuries •
For this episode, the show welcomes Golden State Orthopedic and Spine’s Dr. Jeffrey Kanel for a discussion on various shoulder injuries — most notably shoulder dislocations.
Dr. Kanel is an orthopedic surgeon at Golden State Orthopedic and Spine. He is fellowship-trained in pediatric orthopedics and spinal deformities and specialty-trained in pediatric and adolescent sports medicine. His expertise could cover several topics, but this episode focused on shoulder dislocations, a relatively common injury among high school athletes and one that we haven’t really covered yet on the podcast.

Over the 20 minute conversation, Dr. Kanel addresses what happens when a shoulder is dislocated and the process for surgery (more common in high school athletes than older patients) and recovery. He also covered labrum tears (also more common in teen dislocations than others), the difference between shoulder dislocations and shoulder separations, and how rotator cuff injuries are NOT common in teen athletes.
