Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Call for more information: 770-219-8244

The shoulder area is one of the most versatile joints in the human body.  Made up of three main bones (the humerus, scapula and clavicle), use of the shoulder involves the interaction between your muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones. This joint allows you the flexibility to move and rotate your arm with a wide range of motion. When this area is damaged, it can be very painful to move your arm, causing disruption to your everyday routine.

Our experienced orthopedic team at Northeast Georgia Medical Center offers shoulder replacement as an option to help treat ongoing shoulder pain and other conditions caused by stress, arthritis or injury. During shoulder replacement, the damaged bone or cartilage is replaced to create new joint surfaces.

In addition to relief from joint pain and limited mobility, shoulder replacement can also help restore strength and function in your arm to get you back to your everyday lifestyle.
