The Solution

A surgical practice that provides personalized care when you need it with a patient care experience that exceeds your expectations and never feels rushed.

Dr. Jesse Slade Shantz

How it Works

Acumen, led by Dr. Jesse Slade Shantz, provides assessment, diagnosis and surgical and non-surgical care for shoulder and sports injuries.

What you should expect: When you decide to be assessed at Acumen Clinic you should expect to leave with a clearly described diagnosis, potential treatment options and the feeling that no stones have been left unturned. If you need surgery, you can book it within an appropriate timeframe. You will not have to pay for additional follow-up to review imaging we order.

If surgery is indicated, the Acumen Clinic team will find a time that fits with your life and ensure that you are prepared for the procedure. Dr. Slade Shantz performs all surgeries personally, and monitors your recovery closely.
