If your shoulder pain keeps you from doing the things that you love to do, Ministry Medical Group’s Orthopedic Department can diagnose your problem and offer you surgical and non-surgical solutions to help you get your life back.
Rotator cuff injuries are the most common cause of shoulder pain.
Non-surgical procedures like cortisone injections, medication and physical therapy can help you build the strength of the rotator cuff muscles while reducing inflammation. This can relieve pain.
When non-surgical treatments do not bring relief, you can turn to the skills of orthopedic surgeon Marcus Haemmerle, MD for shoulder procedures, including reverse total shoulder replacement surgery.
You may be a candidate for minimally invasive surgery to repair a tendon which has torn away from the attachment site or you may need a complete reverse shoulder replacement, which allows the deltoid muscle to provide the force necessary to raise the arm in the absence of a rotator cuff.
