Surgical & Shoulder Replacement Options
Shoulder replacement may be right for you if other treatments haven’t relieved chronic pain or stiffness due to:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Major fracture or injury
- Avascular necrosis
If surgery is the best option, your orthopedic surgeon will collaborate with you to identify the type of shoulder surgery that meets your needs:
- Patient-specific reverse total shoulder replacement designed to fit a person’s individual anatomy
- Rotator cuff repair
- Shoulder decompression
Shoulder Replacement Recovery
After shoulder replacement surgery, physical and occupational therapists will guide you through exercises designed to minimize scar tissue and increase your shoulder’s range of motion and flexibility. This inpatient therapy program will help you heal faster and learn how to care for yourself at home.
Before you leave the hospital, you’ll receive a personalized rehabilitation plan – that may include outpatient therapy or Avera@Home home health services – to ensure the most complete recovery possible.
