Shoulder Surgery Q&A

Why would I need shoulder surgery?

Your shoulder is a complex joint made up of muscles, tendons, and ligaments that hold your joint in place and give you a versatile range of motion. While anyone can develop a shoulder injury from trauma, shoulder issues are common among athletes and those who frequently perform repetitive movements.

Shoulder surgery may be a treatment option if you injure your shoulder in an auto accident or sports-related incident. You may also need surgery to treat arthritis or another degenerative joint disease.

The physicians at Premier Orthopedics can determine if you’re a candidate for shoulder surgery after a full diagnostic evaluation and a review of your medical history. Surgery is typically the last resort for addressing chronic pain and immobility that’s not treatable with conservative therapies.

What types of shoulder surgery are available?

The surgical team at Premier Orthopedics offers minimally invasive and open surgeries to repair damage in your shoulder.

One of the most common shoulder surgeries they perform is a rotator cuff repair. A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that keep your shoulder joint together and in the right position.  This structure also gives you the ability to lift your arm overhead and throw a ball.

Another available type of shoulder surgery is joint replacement. The focus of this surgery is to replace all or part of the shoulder joint that’s damaged by trauma or disease with an artificial device. The artificial joint functions like your natural joint to restore your range of motion and ease pain and other symptoms.

The Premier Orthopedics team also perform:

  • Biceps repair
  • Labrum repairs
  • Shoulder stabilization
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Reverse shoulder replacement

The team at Premier Orthopedics create a surgical plan that focuses on your unique needs. They can determine which techniques are necessary to repair soft tissue injuries or replace damaged joints.

What can I expect during shoulder surgery?

The Premier Orthopedics surgeons perform many shoulder surgeries using arthroscopic techniques that require only small incisions. Your surgeon inserts a scope with an attached camera that sends real-time images of the surgical site to an external monitor. This provides your surgeon with an up-close view of your shoulder, so they can make repairs or replacements with a high level of precision.

Following your surgery, your provider monitors your recovery process. They ensure your incisions are healing properly, and when you’re ready, the Premier Orthopedics team can start you on physical therapy to restore function in your shoulder joint. Physical therapy services are available on-site for your convenience.
