Move freely again with shoulder replacement

Is chronic shoulder pain limiting your daily activities? At Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we care about your quality of life and understand how frustrating it can be to live with any kind of joint pain.

If you’ve tried medication, physical therapy, injections or less invasive surgeries without success, your provider may suggest shoulder replacement surgery, or shoulder arthroplasty. During this procedure, your surgeon removes a damaged shoulder joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. It is often used to treat shoulder joints that are severely damaged by arthritis, injuries or infections.

Offering shoulder replacement in Goshen, IN, our orthopedics surgeons are highly knowledgeable and experienced in this procedure. Our team works together to deliver integrated, personalized care to each patient. We want to help you do the things you love without pain.

In most cases, this procedure is a total shoulder replacement. You may have a partial shoulder replacement if only the humeral head, the ball at the top of your arm bone, is damaged.

Your surgery will take place at Goshen Hospital, and you may go home the day of the surgery or stay overnight in the hospital. During recovery, you’ll wear a sling and attend physical therapy. Gradually, you’ll regain full function and flexibility with less pain. Our providers will be there every step of the way, helping you heal with compassionate care.
