Orthopedic Surgery

Shoulder pain that has not been successfully controlled through conservative methods of medication, rest, and exercise can negatively impact the sufferer’s quality of life. Surgical shoulder replacement by North Idaho orthopedic specialists offers hope to those who suffer from serious joint pain. Our private rooms, gourmet food, and high staff-to-patient ratio translate to individualized care, all at a cost that is affordable.

Several Types of Shoulder Replacement For North Idaho Patients Offer A New Lease On Life

Shoulder replacement in North Idaho and throughout the country has proven to be quite successful at treating severe pain and stiffness and restoring movement, whether difficulty is caused by arthritis or injury. In this procedure, the damaged joint ball is replaced with a metal prosthesis and a smooth plastic surface substituted for the shoulder socket. A partial shoulder replacement in North Idaho is sometimes recommended for fractures of the joint ball. In reverse shoulder replacement the socket and metal ball are switched in patients who suffer from severe arm weakness and a completely torn rotator cuff, or who have experienced a failed prior replacement.
