Total Shoulder Replacement

The shoulder consists of three major bone systems: upper arm bone, shoulder blade and collarbone. Where these bones touch, there is a soft material that provides cushioning, which allows them to move smoothly. Coupled with the cartilage lubrication that eliminates the friction between bones, we should be able to rotate our shoulders freely, permitting a range of motion greater than the other joints in our body.

Compared to hip and knee replacement, shoulder joint surgery is less common. However, when needed, it can successfully relieve joint pain and restore mobility.

At Granite Orthopaedics, we explore the possibility of non-surgery, less invasive options first before resorting to extreme measures. But when medication, lifestyle changes or physical therapy are no longer effective, we recommend shoulder joint replacement surgery. We perform these procedures:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Treatment for shoulder instability and shoulder joint pain
  • Total shoulder replacement
  • Reverse total shoulder replacement
  • Arthroscopic shoulder surgery
  • Frozen shoulder surgery

Our highly skilled and experienced orthopaedic surgeons can relieve pain and restore function to your shoulders. You can trust our joint replacement surgery option to be safe and effective at helping you return to a pain-free life.

If you are considering various treatment options for your shoulder injury or have decided to get surgery, come to Granite Orthopaedics. We serve the communities of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Williamson, Dewey-Humboldt and nearby areas. We’re here to help you.
