Shoulder pain can mean a variety of possibilities. Arthritis, rotator cuff tear or bone spurs, shoulder impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, or maybe a dislocated shoulder. When you’re experiencing pain, come to the Joint Institute at ARMC and see a shoulder specialist. They can determine the right course to take.
If the pain is chronic and long-lasting, it very well may require shoulder replacement surgery. This type of surgery involves removing the bones of the shoulder joint and replacing them with artificial joint parts. We use the latest techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, which has the potential for less pain and a faster recovery time. Due to the nature and area of the joint, patients will always have a recovery period, but the success rate for relieving pain and giving you back your full motion is high.
