Total Replacement Surgery Could Offer Relief
The roofer who can no longer carry heavy bundles of shingles. The teacher who finds it painful to write on the blackboard. The golfer who winces in pain with each swing of the club. The homeowner who can’t carry heavy bags of groceries or shovel snow. The grandparent who can’t pick up a precious grandchild.
When you suffer from nagging or excruciating shoulder pain, it can drastically affect how you work, how you play, how you handle your day-to-day responsibilities and how you interact with those you love.
At Kayal Orthopaedic Center, our elite team of award-winning surgeons will explore nonsurgical treatments to relieve your pain whenever possible, including rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, steroid injections, platelet-rich plasma and other orthobiologics. We’ll also explore minimally invasive procedures when they offer the most promising results.
For some people, however, the answer to debilitating shoulder pain is a total shoulder replacement or reverse shoulder replacement. You can learn about the differences of both surgeries in our eBook.
Is Shoulder Replacement Surgery Right for Me?
Before consulting a health expert (and sometimes even after consulting one), some people may dismiss shoulder replacement or reverse replacement surgery as a nonviable option. When that happens, fear or misinformation is often the reason.
“I’m too old.” “I’m too young.” “I’m too heavy.” “I’m too weak.” “It’s too risky.”
Whatever you may think, it’s important to consult your surgeon at Kayal Orthopaedic Center to learn all of the facts and make an informed decision—a decision that is right for you. The surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center care about every patient and will spend all the time that’s needed to answer questions and address concerns.
You might be surprised to discover that being older or overweight doesn’t necessarily rule you out as a strong candidate for shoulder replacement surgery. Of course, every person and every case is unique, but, typically, advanced age alone will not disqualify you. People 85 and older and in good health have had very successful outcomes with shoulder replacement surgery.
Your elite team at Kayal Orthopaedic Center will evaluate you individually to discuss whether you would benefit from a shoulder replacement surgery. For those who are strong candidates, total shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement surgery can relieve pain and restore mobility.
In our eBook, you’ll also learn what to expect before, during and after shoulder replacement surgery.
