Shoulder Pain and Shoulder Replacement

Make an appointment today. No referral necessary.

The orthopedic shoulder specialists at Norton Orthopedic Institute have the experience to know when your condition can respond to conservative treatment and when surgery is required to restore function and let you get back to your lifestyle.

If you need shoulder replacement surgery, our physicians perform more every year than any other health care provider in the Louisville and Southern Indiana area. That means we have the experience to know when shoulder replacement will give you the results you want and when it won’t.

Experience also means our shoulder specialists stay abreast of leading-edge treatments that often allow you to recover faster and get back to your life. They actively participate in clinical trials that can give patients access to new devices and shoulder implants.

Our orthopedic shoulder specialists are equipped with sophisticated imaging and other diagnostic tools to pinpoint the source of your shoulder pain. We’ll then offer a treatment and rehabilitation plan customized for your condition.

Physical therapy and anti-inflammatory treatment may be all that’s required to resolve your pain. Others may need surgery to make repairs, or a shoulder replacement. Our skilled providers listen to you to understand how the diagnosis affects your life. Then they recommend the best treatment.

Leading Advancements in Nonsurgical and Surgical Care

Most sources of pain in bones and joints don’t require surgery. Norton Orthopedic Institute has providers specially trained in providing nonsurgical treatment as well as surgery to address your shoulder pain.

Our nonsurgical orthopedists are board-certified internal or family medicine specialists with additional training to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries without surgery.

Nonsurgical orthopedic physicians can guide treatment and work with physical and occupational therapists to get you back to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
