Care Philosophy

Dr. Thorsness' clinical expertise focuses on shoulder and elbow surgery and sports medicine with an emphasis on shoulder and elbow reconstruction and replacement. Most commonly, he treats patients for rotator cuff disorders, shoulder dislocations and instability, labral tears, arthritis, fractures and sports injuries, using minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques. For management of shoulder arthritis, he utilizes anatomic total shoulder and reverse total shoulder replacement using the most modern, bone preserving techniques. Dr. Thorsness believes in delivering care to patients that is patient-centered and based on the best available evidence. This often requires a team-oriented approach to treatment, which may involve physical and occupational therapists to maximize functional outcomes for his patients.
