David E. Taylor, MD is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the management of sports injuries and various knee and shoulder conditions.
Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, & dislocations.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an Arthroscope.
The shoulder is a highly movable body joint that allows various movements of the arm. It is a ball and socket joint, where the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) articulates with the socket of the scapula (shoulder blade) called the glenoid.
I want to thank Dr Taylor for giving me my shoulder and my life back! Before my reverse total shoulder I had constant pain and was unable to lift my arm at all. Now I am back to everything I want to do, with no pain! Dr. Taylor is a skilled surgeon and a caring doctor—I recommend him highly!
When I dislocated my shoulder and tore my labrum and rotator cuff, I thought my sports career was over. Thanks to Dr Taylor and his scope I’m back doing what I want to do! I would not go anywhere but TriHealth for orthopedic care!
Dr. Taylor is a smart, kind and compassionate physician. He cares deeply about each person and treats each of us with dignity and respect. He remembers my name, my condition, my sister and my history; that’s quite impressive. He takes time with me at my appointment and answers all my questions…
It has been a pleasure to be a patient at Bethesda Surgery Center. I had two people call me the day after the surgery to see how I was doing… and they really wanted to know… it was much more than a cursory "have to call another patient" phone call!
diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure during which the internal structure of a joint is examined for diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint. In arthroscopic examination, a small incision is made in the patient’s skin through which pencil-sized instruments that have a small lens and lighting system (arthroscope) are passed.
