Dr. Halbrecht is a Board Certified orthopedic surgeon fellowship trained in sports medicine with over 20 years of experience. She has special expertise in the shoulder, recognizing and successfully treating conditions conservatively when other surgeons have recommended surgery. IME preferences also include knee, hip, ankle, elbow, wrist and hand.
Additional Information: The shoulder is a complicated joint that requires understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics to diagnose and treat pathology. Conditions such as GIRD (glenohumeral internal rotation deficit) and scapular dyskinesis are frequently misdiagnosed as impingment syndrome, rotator cuff tear, biceps tendonitis or labral tear. Failure to recognize the appropriate diagnosis can result in unnecessary steroid injection and surgery. The treatment for GIRD and scapular dyskinesis is physical therapy. Dr. Halbrecht has treated hundreds of patients with GIRD and/or scapular dyskinesis successfully with conservative treatment. Dr. Halbrecht has a degree in Engineering and has worked with leading shoulder surgeons. Her expertise has been recognized in this field as she has been invited to lecture on this subject as well as teach other surgeons shoulder arthroscopy.
