“I am fortunate to have had great opportunities for sports medicine training through my involvement in Big Ten Conference athletics. As a result, I have extensive experience in treating sports injuries, including knee ligament injuries and dislocations, simple and complex shoulder dislocations, rotator cuff tears, elbow fractures and dislocations. I enjoy providing care for the elite, professional athlete as well as the leisurely ‘weekend warrior.’”

  • The focus of Dr. Donaldson’s practice is complex shoulder and elbow injury and dysfunction. He provides a high volume of complex care to individuals with significant conditions of the shoulder and elbow.
  • Many shoulder and upper extremity problems can be treated conservatively without the need for surgery. When surgery provides the best option for helping a person reach their fullest potential, providing expert surgical treatment close to home eliminates the inconvenience of traveling long-distances for surgery, follow-up care and rehabilitation. We can quickly respond to questions and concerns which enhances recovery and the transition back to normal activities.
