Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder problems can arise from either chronic wear or sudden injury. Weekend athletes and do-it-yourselfers can also be affected by the routine motions required to golf, play tennis, swim, lift weights or work on common construction projects. The most common causes of shoulder pain include tendonitis, bursitis and an inflamed rotator cuff, which can be extremely painful and life altering if left untreated.

A shoulder replacement can improve strength, increase range of motion and reduce pain. Grand View offers traditional shoulder replacements, as well as reverse shoulder replacements. These surgical procedures replace the worn out surfaces of the shoulder with metal and plastic components.

Your procedure will be performed at The Joint Center at Grand View Health—a unit that’s dedicated to just joint replacement patients. Our respected team of highly trained board-certified orthopaedic surgeons from Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health work with specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians who will help you get back to your favorite activities as quickly as possible.

Our state-of-the-art technology means a quicker recovery, increased mobility and excellent outcomes for our patients. And with improvements in surgical techniques, pain management and pre- and post-op care, it’s now common for most patients to go home from the hospital after just one or two days.
