Understanding Shoulder Surgeries:

Shoulder surgeries encompass a range of procedures aimed at addressing various shoulder conditions, including injuries, degenerative diseases, and structural abnormalities. These surgeries are designed to relieve pain, restore function, and improve mobility in the shoulder joint.

Types of Procedures:

At Neo TrueNorth, we offer comprehensive shoulder surgery services tailored to each patient’s specific needs:

  • Rotator Cuff Repair: Surgical repair of a torn rotator cuff tendon to restore strength and stability to the shoulder joint.
  • Shoulder Arthroscopy: Minimally invasive procedure using a small camera and specialized instruments to diagnose and treat shoulder problems such as impingement, labral tears, and loose bodies.
  • Shoulder Replacement: Surgical replacement of damaged or arthritic shoulder joint components with artificial implants to alleviate pain and improve function.
  • Bankart Repair: Reconstruction of the torn labrum and stabilization of the shoulder joint following recurrent dislocations or instability.
  • AC Joint Reconstruction: Surgical repair or reconstruction of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint to restore stability and function in cases of severe separation or arthritis.

Indications for Surgery:

Shoulder surgery may be recommended for patients experiencing:

  • Chronic shoulder pain that does not respond to conservative treatments such as rest, physical therapy, or medication.
  • Limited range of motion, weakness, or instability in the shoulder joint.
  • Shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears, labral tears, or fractures that require surgical intervention for optimal recovery.

The Surgical Procedure:

Our skilled orthopedic surgeons perform shoulder surgeries using advanced techniques and technology:

  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia or regional anesthesia may be administered to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.
  • Surgical Approach: Depending on the type of surgery, a minimally invasive arthroscopic approach or traditional open surgery may be utilized.
  • Repair or Reconstruction: Surgical repair, reconstruction, or replacement of damaged or injured shoulder structures to restore function and stability.
  • Closure: Closure of the incisions with sutures or staples, followed by application of a sterile dressing to promote healing.

Postoperative Care:

Following shoulder surgery, patients receive comprehensive postoperative care and rehabilitation support:

  • Pain Management: Administration of pain medications to manage postoperative discomfort and promote comfort during the recovery period.
  • Physical Therapy: Rehabilitation program tailored to each patient’s needs to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the shoulder joint.
