Shoulder Surgery

Shoulder surgery can treat rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, bone fractures, and severe shoulder arthritis. This page provides an overview of the various types of shoulder surgery that is performed by our shoulder surgeons at OrthoEdge locations in Jacksonville and Macclenny, FL.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy is an advanced, minimally invasive, surgical technique that pays big dividends in the diagnosis and treatment of many shoulder disorders. It involves using a high-definition video arthroscope, hence, “scope,” through a series of small one-to-two-centimeter incisions to gain access to, look at, and repair injuries both inside the shoulder joint, as well as the surrounding structures of the Acromioclavicular joint and scapula. The use of smaller incisions allows for faster healing, faster recovery times, and reduces scarring.

The advantage to using the high-def, and sometimes even 4K quality, scope for repairs is less damage to the muscle and surrounding tissue, same day procedures, and quicker rehab and recovery time.  Through the scope, we can repair rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon, and labral tears; remove bursitis as well as impinging bone spurs, fix cartilage damage, and stabilize unstable shoulders.

If you have a rotator cuff tear and need surgery, ask your doctor if REGENETEN could be right for you.

Shoulder Arthroplasty Surgery (Shoulder Joint Replacement)

Shoulder arthroplasty surgery, or in simple terms, shoulder replacement surgery, is a surgical procedure that removes damaged bone and replaces it with implants. Shoulder replacement surgery is only recommended when all other non-surgical treatment methods have been explored or if there is an injury that requires immediate replacement.

The options for replacement include partial and total replacements, with several different shapes and sizes.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Reverse shoulder replacement surgery is an advanced surgical technique that is designed specifically for people suffering with both a rotator cuff tear and shoulder arthritis.

Rotator cuff arthropathy is a kind of shoulder arthritis that develops after a large rotator cuff tear has existed for a long period of time. Rotator cuff arthropathy differs from shoulder arthritis because it is a result of a tear that caused the rotator cuff to function improperly. It also affects the ball and socket of the shoulder joint, in that the ball shifts away from the socket.
