Common Shoulder Conditions
Reverse Joint Replacement
If your shoulder joint is in the end stages of arthritis or degenerative joint disease, and you’re experiencing severe pain and stiffness, a shoulder replacement may be the right solution! This surgery replaces the damaged parts of your shoulder with a prothesis that will give you greater mobility.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement
When torn rotator cuffs are beyond repair or total shoulder replacement surgeries are unsuccessful, a reverse shoulder replacement can result in a better outcome than a total replacement! In this surgery, the natural position of the ball and socket parts of the shoulder joint is flipped, giving the patient significant relief.
Also known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder, or increasing stiffness in your shoulder joint, may occur when you are recovering from an illness or procedure and cannot move your arm. We can administer medications, oversee range of motion exercises, or perform arthroscopic surgery to help you move freely again!
Rotator Cuff Tear
If you have a dull ache in your shoulder caused by a torn rotator cuff, and your pain has not improved with nonsurgical treatments, rotator cuff surgery can help repair the shoulder tear and restore your active lifestyle! This surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis, depending on the nature of the tear.
Broken Shoulder Surgery
Left untreated, fractured shoulders can cause intense pain and more severe medical problems down the road. Broken shoulder surgery, which knits the bones back together using plates or screws, often restores total function and eliminates discomfort.
When you dislocate your shoulder, you injure your ligaments and loosen your shoulder joint, a painful condition that leads to shoulder instability. Shoulder reconstructive surgery can address this instability by repairing tears and decreasing the chance of future dislocations.
