Welcome to the

Shoulder School

What is . . .

The Shoulder school

The Shoulder School is a program developed by local orthopedic surgeon Tracy Wilson, in collaboration with a small group of physical therapists and occupational therapists. Previously taught live in a classroom every second week, it has now transformed into a virtual education session for those undergoing shoulder surgery. Those who are booked for a surgical repair of their shoulder will now be able to have all their questions answered from the comfort of their own homes. 

Important questions such as:  How do I use a shoulder abduction brace? What kind of pain medication will I get? Can I open a jar with my operated hand? When do I start therapy? and others will be answered to help you to understand the process and feel confident that your surgery will go smoothly.

Although not mandatory, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of this valuable service. Developed and taught by surgeons and therapists who specialize in the field of shoulder surgery and rehabilitation, the Shoulder School will help patients to work towards achieving the best possible outcomes in preparation for their surgeries. 

Ask your surgeon about the Shoulder School to see if it’s right for you.
