Addressing Various Shoulder Conditions
The shoulder is one of the most-used joints in the body, making it prone to overuse and injury. These conditions can have a serious impact on your ability to perform everyday tasks effectively. At High Mountain Orthopedics, we commonly treat shoulder conditions such as:
Rotator Cuff Tear
Your rotator cuff is a ring of connective tissue that surrounds your shoulder joint. It’s responsible for stabilizing the joint, holding bones in place, and preventing overextension. When it tears, your shoulder becomes weak, painful, and difficult to use effectively.
If the shoulder joint is overstretched or torn, it may become destabilized. This is not only painful, but it also leads to frequent dislocations, physical deformities, numbness, and progressive weakness that make it difficult to function normally.
Your shoulder is operated and cushioned by a network of muscles. When one of these becomes injured, you can lose function in the joint. This impingement results in swollen joints, weakness, and difficulties with bending the shoulder in certain directions.
Arthritis is one of the most common complaints among orthopedic patients. When it affects the shoulder joint, it can have serious consequences for the patient’s mobility, independence, and quality of life. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, grinding, or “clacking” sounds.
Our Shoulder Treatment Options
With a fast diagnosis and timely treatment, High Mountain Orthopedics can help to ensure proper recovery and the restored health of your shoulder. We offer a variety of options, including:
Arthroscopy is a brief procedure during which a small camera is inserted into the shoulder. The camera captures images of the affected area, which helps doctors diagnose the issue and plan treatment. Arthroscopy can also be used to guide surgeons during procedures.
Rotator Cuff Repair
Rotator cuff repair surgery is designed to restore mobility to a torn rotator cuff. Surgeons skillfully reattach tendons to the bone, stitching together the ends of major torn tendons.
If you or a loved one is struggling with shoulder instability, our specialists can fix this issue with shoulder stabilization surgery, during which special anchors are implanted to keep the joint in place and relieve pain.
A shoulder replacement surgery can provide relief and restore mobility. This procedure involves surgeons removing damaged parts of the structure, then replacing them with artificial components. How much of the shoulder is replaced depends on the extent and severity of the condition.
A reverse shoulder replacement stabilizes the ball and socket of the shoulder joint where a traditional replacement fails.
