In the Quad Cities, ORA Orthopedics is the premier provider of outpatient total shoulder replacement surgery. As the largest and most advanced provider of orthopedic care in the Quad Cities, our fellowship-trained, board-certified sports medicine physicians help restore mobility and joint function in patients with joint damage. Your doctor may consider shoulder joint replacement if you have severe pain which limits daily activities and is not relieved with medications, injections, or physical therapy. We use the latest developments in joint replacement surgery to minimize incisions and accelerate recovery, allowing your shoulder replacement surgery to be performed on an outpatient basis.
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint that allows for 180 degrees of motion. If the joint becomes severely fractured as a result of trauma or if arthritis wears away the cartilage that cushions the “ball” (humerus) and “socket” (glenoid), replacing the damaged surfaces of the joint may be necessary to restore joint function. If you are living with chronic shoulder pain and cannot find relief from your symptoms, consider consulting with an ORA Orthopedics physician to learn about your treatment options.
With the use of minimally invasive techniques, modern pain protocols, and rapid rehabilitation, our surgeons can perform total shoulder replacement as an outpatient procedure. Patients receive one-on-one individualized nursing care and physical therapy while undergoing outpatient total shoulder replacement at ORA’s Crow Valley Surgery Center. Immediately following surgery, you recover in a spacious, private room and order dinner from a local restaurant. Patients return home within the first 24 hours. This allows you to recover in the comfort of your own home, avoiding a lengthy hospital stay.
At ORA Orthopedics, treatment begins with you. You will receive a treatment plan that will be tailored to your unique health needs and care preferences. In the event that total shoulder replacement surgery is the appropriate treatment option for your condition, you can be assured that our specialists will walk you through every step of the process and provide the information you need to make confident decisions about your joint health.
