The presentation is part of Valley View University (VVU), a series of free educational webinars hosted by Valley View.
Shoulder pain can impact just about every aspect of a person’s life, from work to hobbies, to activities of daily living. In this 20-minute discussion, followed by an open Q&A, Dr. Liotta will discuss how to better understand shoulder pain and options for managing and treating pain successfully.

His practice is on the cutting edge of shoulder orthopedics, using minimally invasive treatment options to restore patients to their former activity levels.
