Shoulder Replacement & Repair

Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. Its ball-and-socket structure does important work alongside muscles, cartilage, bones and ligaments.

Our Sports Medicine
specialists can help!

Shoulder pain and problems affect young athletes, weekend warriors and competitive sports players as well as those with occupational injuries, arthritis, bursitis and other conditions.

Complex shoulder disorders need the latest advanced treatment approaches of Abington Orthopaedic & Spine Institute – Jefferson Health. Our surgeons specializing in sports medicine have in-depth expertise in minimally invasive shoulder repair and replacement.

Evaluation, Repair & Replacement

To evaluate your shoulder condition, our surgeons make a small incision and insert a fiberoptic camera. This arthroscopic technique enables them to use magnified images to view the shoulder and surrounding tissues, then repair or replace the joint.

We excel at leading-edge procedures to end pain and disability from damaged shoulders, including reverse shoulder replacement and treatments for rotator cuff tear, bone spurs, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement syndrome, shoulder instability and dislocated shoulder.

Our surgeons also treat:

Damaged or torn cartilage ring (labrum) or ligaments

Torn or damaged biceps tendon

Joint lining damage or inflammation (often caused by rheumatoid arthritis)

Arthritis at end of clavicle, or collarbone

“I feel like I’m at 100% again. My flexibility is back,” says Nyeem Haynes, a high-school athlete whose repeated shoulder dislocations ended after arthroscopic surgery.
