Individualized Care Tailored to Your Needs

At The Orthopaedic Institute, our mission is to deliver exceptional surgical care for the Shoulder and Upper Extremity, utilizing the latest scientific evidence and technology, and a personalized, patient-centered approach.

In an age when medicine and health care delivery have taken on an industrialized and depersonalized feel, Dr. Diaz offers a more intimate, contemporary office setting with kind and competent team members who are responsive to each patient's needs. Dr. Diaz delivers care that is precise and targeted to the specific circumstances and goals of each individual patient.

Dr. Diaz takes a highly individualized, evidence-based approach to treating shoulder and upper extremity conditions and injuries. Your consultation will include a detailed assessment of your symptoms and any associated functional limitations, a discussion of your goals and activity demands, a thorough examination, and in many cases, in-office x-rays to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan. Dr. Diaz may also recommend more advanced studies such as MRI or CT scan. 

Dr. Diaz will be the one to see you through your recovery.  She checks in with patients the morning after surgery, and is available and involved throughout the postoperative period.  Dr. Diaz knows that therapy is paramount to a successful result in the treatment of many shoulder and upper extremity conditions.  Her network of colleagues includes the most talented and experienced therapists in the area, with whom she communicates on a regular basis to make sure patients are progressing as expected.
