You deserve proven, minimally invasive techniques to reduce pain and length of recovery for your shoulder injury. At Onward Orthopedics, we partner with only the best orthopedic surgeons in your area to ensure you receive personalized care specific to your needs, no matter the age. Below is brief overview of common surgical solutions we carry out on a daily basis.
Shoulder Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a small camera allows the surgeon to see inside your joint. During the procedure, the surgeon will use small tools to repair the damaged cartilage within your joint. The procedure makes diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from surgery easier and faster.
If the rotator cuff is injured, it may need to be repaired surgically. This may include shaving off bone spurs that are pinching the shoulder, or repairing torn tendons or muscles in the shoulder. Surgical techniques that may be used to repair a tear of the rotator cuff include arthroscopy, open surgery, or a combination of both. The goal of rotator cuff repair surgery is to help restore the function and flexibility of the shoulder and to relieve the pain that cannot be controlled by other treatments.
With a shoulder replacement, your surgeon may replace just the ball (partial replacement) or both the ball and the socket (total replacement). While this procedure is a major alteration, our Onward Orthopedic surgeons can perform it as a minimally invasive surgery for candidates that qualify.
The above list is by no means exhaustive. Your physician will evaluate you personally and seek to understand your goals and your history before recommending which procedure you should undergo.
