• Michael Amini, MD first and only member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons in Tucson

    Join Southwest Orthopaedics as we congratulate Michael Amini, MD for becoming the first and only member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) in Tucson, and only the fourth member in all of Arizona.

    The ASES is the only society dedicated to the care of Shoulder and Elbow problems, and is open only to orthopaedic surgeons who have completed a dedicated Shoulder and Elbow fellowship (additional training) certified by the ASES and run by ASES members. There are only several hundred members in the entire organization.


    Acceptance into the ASES requires that the surgeon has demonstrated continued pursuit of education and research in the field of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery. Dr. Amini has published numerous research studies, published several book chapters, and given many regional and national presentations about his research studies into shoulder and elbow problems, including the ASES Annual Meeting, which accepts only 1% of the submitted research studies.

    If you are having problems with your shoulder or elbow, come see the only member of the ASES in Southern Arizona.
