Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Surgeons in Louisville, KY

Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Louisville KY If you live in the Louisville, Kentucky, area and persistent shoulder pain or stiffness is taking away from your quality of life, Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic is here to help. Our team includes board-certified orthopedic physicians who specialize in performing shoulder surgery, including total shoulder arthroplasty (shoulder replacement).

What Does Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Involve?

This surgery is performed to remove damaged components of the shoulder joint—a ball-and-socket joint that includes the top of the humerus bone (the ball) and the glenoid cavity (the socket). The damaged joint structures are then replaced with artificial joint components known as prostheses to help restore natural joint movement and stability. In some cases, replacing the humerus head may be all that is necessary.

Is Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Right for Me?

Total shoulder arthroplasty is generally considered to be the last resort for patients who cannot find relief from their pain with more conservative measures like physical therapy, medications, and minimally invasive procedures. Nevertheless, this “last resort” surgery comes with a high success rate and can provide significant improvement in quality of life.

If you have disruptive and unrelenting shoulder pain from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, an extensive rotator cuff tear, osteonecrosis, or a severe bone fracture, total shoulder arthroplasty may be right for you. But, no website can determine your ideal course of treatment—that’s why it’s so important to consult with orthopedic specialists like the professionals at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. To schedule an appointment with a shoulder surgeon on our team, contact us today or reserve an appointment online. We proudly serve residents of Louisville and all surrounding communities.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
