About Me

I specialize in orthopaedics, with a subspecialty in shoulder surgery.

My approach to patient care is providing individualized care to each patient and problem. I believe strongly in a conservative approach and involving patients in their care.

I use non-operative measures whenever possible. However, there are times when surgery is the best solution. In those cases, I use only the latest and most current techniques in shoulder surgery.

I am passionate about what I do as an orthopedic shoulder surgeon. That’s because I get a lot of pleasure from treating not only the straightforward problems, but also the complex and more difficult shoulder problems. I love helping patients reclaim their quality of life and getting them back to the activities they enjoy.

    Absolutely amazing. She's gone above and beyond to make sure she could find a procedure to do on my shoulder, answer all the questions she could, and remain positive.

    Some responses to my questions were not always consistent or thorough. I was occasionally unclear as to my expected outcome or the limitations on what I could or could not do with my affected shoulder. Before surgery I was told that "some people can" do certain motions after their surgery. Then, after my surgery, I was told it wasn't likely that I would ever be able to do the motion (just because that's the way it is). As with other visits, I discussed the feed back with my physical therapy who could always explain things much more clearly and consistently.

    Dr. Bishop was very professional, courteous and sincerely interested in hearing about my shoulder. She explained the MRI findings and indicated what was applicable to my shoulder pain. Recommended a plan and suggested other treatment options other than surgery.
