Shoulder pain can go past the point of just being a daily aggravation. Chronic shoulder discomfort can greatly diminish an individual’s quality of life and make important everyday tasks – such as sleeping or driving a car – extremely difficult. If you live in the Durham area and are in need of treatment for shoulder pain, North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic can help. We offer shoulder arthroplasty procedures that can eliminate your pain once and for all, allowing you to return to a normal, active lifestyle.
About North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic
We’re a community-focused clinic that offers comprehensive orthopedic care in a warm and welcoming environment. Our specialists are fellowship trained and have the best interests of the patient in mind at all times. This means that if our surgeon believes that your symptoms can be relieved through nonsurgical treatment, conservative therapies will be the recommended course of action. A shoulder replacement procedure will be suggested only if it is necessary.
In a shoulder replacement procedure, the damaged surfaces of the joint are replaced with a polished metal ball attached to a stem and a plastic socket. This allows the joint, which has been damaged by a traumatic injury, arthritis, or another degenerative condition, to once again provide smooth, pain-free shoulder movement.
