Dr. Hamm began treating complex shoulder issues arthroscopically in 1990 and was one of the first in Dallas to perform all rotator cuff tears totally arthroscopically. He also treats most shoulder instability problems through the arthroscope. When severe arthritis or severe rotator cuff atrophy is present, he performs a total shoulder replacement or a reverse total shoulder.
Dr. Hamm also has specialization in ACL reconstruction and meniscal repair in acute knee injuries as well as treatment of patella and cartilage injuries of the knee. As part of his General Orthopedic practice, he does treat all areas of the body insuring that each problem is treated with the upmost care.
Dr Hamm is also concerned about the rising cost of medical care and the toll it takes on families. Tests and physical therapy will be ordered only if necessary. Dr. Hamm will recommend surgery only when necessary. Conservative treatment is always his treatment of choice unless contraindicated.
