What is a Shoulder Replacement?

Shoulder replacement surgery replaces damaged parts of the shoulder bone with artificial implants that reduce pain and restore mobility for the patient.

Dr. Martin specializes in treating conditions affecting the shoulder including torn rotator cuff, arthritis, and fractures, among other conditions. He can diagnose your shoulder condition and provide a variety of treatment options including Shoulder Replacement.

Our Approach to Healing

Dr. Martin believes in a comprehensive approach to managing orthopedic care. It’s important to know the symptoms, form a proper diagnosis, formulate treatment options and provide ongoing care to help our patients reach optimal health.

You may experience persistent or recurring pain in the knee that keeps you awake at night and you have difficulty doing daily activities like walking or climbing stairs.

  • Stiff or swollen knee
  • Knee deformity—a bowing in or out of the knee
  • Stiffness that requires the use of a cane or other mobility device

To determine whether a knee replacement is right for you, you will need:

  • Physical exam
  • Check range of motion, strength and stability
  • X-Rays to show extent of condition

Early diagnosis and treatment of knee conditions can help ease the pain and increase quality of life.

  • Non-surgical treatments
  • Surgery (knee replacement)
  • Exercise/physical therapy

Self-care and lifestyle changes can help improve your knee joint health and minimize your risk of developing Osteoarthritis.

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Get regular exercise
  • Manage repetitive occupational risks
