Dr. Denard has advanced arthroscopy training and is able to perform the vast majority of shoulder procedures in a minimally invasive fashion, including all types of rotator cuff repairs and instability repair. These techniques allow him to repair tears that some consider “irreparable.” In addition, he performs anatomic and reverse shoulder replacements for shoulder arthritis


  • Skilled and Caring Services

    Dr. Denard repaired my injured shoulder Feb. 2018. Its been nearly a year since then and my shoulder is totally functional for me, remaining pain free too. Such skilled and caring services as Dr. Denard provides are all to rare these days deserving recognition and praise too. If you are considering shoulder surgery, I can think of no other doctor I would recommend more highly.

  • Thanks' Doc You are the best

    I re tore my shoulder and sought out 4 different opinions. Thankfully I found Dr. Denard and had a remote conference after sending him my images. He explained that he has great success with Superior Capsule Reconstruction with a Allergen graft. I had that surgery in April 2017 and am doing great. Easier PT, ROM was great right after sling was removed. 4 months later pain free, 100 ROM, and good strength. This is the first time in 5 years I am able to help in our garden. Thanks' Doc You are the best. Barry
