Shoulder joint surgery

woman-serving-tennis-ballShoulder pain can develop for many reasons. Arthritis, rotator cuff tear or bone spurs, shoulder impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, or dislocation. When you’re experiencing pain, we can provide an appointment for you. Just call the AtlantiCare Access Center at 1-888-569-1000. 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.

Other shoulder surgeries performed at AtlantiCare include:

  • Rotator Cuff Repair
  • Reverse Shoulder Replacement
  • Fracture Care of the Upper Extremities
