Besides having a keen interest in sports-related injuries, as well as enhancing performance, Dr. Eby focuses on innovative minimally invasive joint replacement techniques that have decreased pain and an earlier return to an active lifestyle.

Dr. Eby has been through special training to master arthroscopic procedures to the shoulder. Arthroscopic procedures include rotator cuff tear repair, labral and instability repair, as well as decompression and spur removal from the shoulder.

These techniques offer a less invasive approach to maximize recovery, minimize postoperative pain, and maximize functional recovery.
