Working at a computer can become more difficult, driving a car can be extremely painful, and even sleeping can be a chore. If you live in the Durham area and are dealing with constant shoulder pain, look to the orthopedic experts at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic. We offer treatment for shoulder pain, including shoulder replacement surgery, to help individuals return to a normal, active lifestyle. Our team of sports medicine specialists includes fellowship-trained physicians who take pride in providing specialized care and personalized service.

Chronic Shoulder Pain Causes & Treatment

There are a variety of conditions that can result in severe shoulder pain and cause an individual to consider shoulder replacement surgery. They include:

  • Severe fractures
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Avascular necrosis

If a shoulder replacement procedure is deemed to be the best course of action by our surgeons, the damaged portions of the shoulder joint will be replaced with artificial components to restore normal function and eliminate pain. Options include the replacement of the head of the humerus (the ball) or the replacement of both the ball and the socket.

When you schedule a consultation with North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, one of our surgeons will review your symptoms and history and help determine if shoulder replacement surgery is the right option for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art facility in Durham.
