Shoulder Replacement

In some cases, replacement of the shoulder, called arthroplasty, may be required.

Rest assured that our surgeons perform this procedure with great success. Often this sugery can significantly help patients with severe arthritic ailments or other degenerative diseases that affect the shoulder joints.

When patients have large rotator cuff tears, surgeons may perform reverse total shoulder surgery.  This approach focuses on repairing the deltoid muscle, rather than the cuff muscle, to achieve improved range of motion.
