Total Shoulder Replacement

Sometimes shoulder pain comes on gradually as a result of overuse, which puts too much stress on the joint or soft tissue of the shoulder.

You may also get shoulder pain as a result of arthritis, which inflames and damages the lining of the shoulder joint. If the arthritis pain becomes unbearable and limits motion in your shoulder, you may be ready to consider shoulder replacement surgery.

Our team not only offers total shoulder replacement (TSR) surgeries and reverse TSR procedures but they also perform the majority of these surgeries in the area.

Before your shoulder replacement surgery, the program educates you completely about what to expect before, during, and after surgery. You will have a thorough pre-anesthesia risk evaluation, plenty of time for questions, and all the individualized care and attention you need.
