We’ve helped thousands of patients get their lives back over our 20+ years of orthopedic service.
AC Joint Arthritis
Acromioclavicular arthritis (AC joint arthritis) is a condition in which cartilage erodes and abnormal bony growths can develop around the top area of the patient’s affected shoulder joint. The AC joint is located at the top part of the shoulder which connects the clavicle and scapula. Arthritis in this joint is more common than in other areas of the shoulder, such as the large ball-and-socket joint.

Plymouth Bay Orthopedic Associates’ new home at 41 Resnik Road!
Plymouth Bay Orthopedic Associates’ new home at 41 Resnik Road looked, appropriately enough, like a skeleton last week as surgeons gathered for the official groundbreaking ceremony.
Walls, floors and everything in between have yet to be fleshed out here.
And when that’s done, Plymouth Bay Orthopedic Associates will move its main office to this new location while retaining its two other satellite locations in Sandwich at 290 Route 130 and in Duxbury at 95 Tremont St.
Dr. Walter Stanwood surveyed the scene as his fellow surgeons donned their signature white coats and hard hats to commemorate the new location and chapter in the company’s lengthy history.
