Shoulder surgery, also called shoulder repair, is used to replace or repair a shoulder joint that’s damaged due to age, injury, overuse or disease. If you have chronic shoulder pain from a rotator cuff injury, arthritis, fracture or recurrent shoulder dislocations, your doctor may recommend shoulder surgery with an orthopedic specialist at Westfield Orthopedics in Westfield, IN.
Shoulder surgery may be the right treatment if you’ve tried medication and physical therapy to reduce your shoulder pain and haven’t seen improvements. Shoulder surgery can range from being a minimally invasive surgery or an open surgery, depending on your injury or condition.
At Westfield Orthopedics, our fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon treats a variety of conditions with shoulder surgeries like arthroscopy and shoulder replacement. It’s our goal to help you regain full function and be able to enjoy activities you love, free of pain.
