Shoulder Replacement Reno NVShoulder Replacement Surgery Offered for Patients in Reno, NV

Shoulder replacement surgery is a procedure needed to treat severe forms of degenerative joint disease and arthritis within the shoulder joint. These two conditions can lead to debilitating pain and limited flexibility, preventing you from performing your daily activities. At Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Reno, Nevada, we have a team of orthopedic surgeons who are skilled in performing shoulder replacement surgery to help treat your pain and restore your quality of life.
Before you consider a shoulder replacement procedure, your doctor will likely have you try a series of conservative treatments to help reduce your pain and symptoms. For many patients, these non-surgical treatments are effective methods of pain relief and only require several weeks or months before significant change in the symptoms is felt. Common non-surgical treatments for a degenerative shoulder joint include:

  • Pain medication
  • Hot/cold compresses
  • Physical therapy
  • Stretches
  • Steroidal injections

If you have exhausted all conservative treatment options and are faced with undergoing a shoulder replacement surgery, know that you are in skilled hands with the orthopedic surgeons at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic Medical Clinic. During this procedure, we will replace the ends of the bones that have been damaged due to the deteriorated joint in your shoulder. Once these are reconstructed, we will build a replacement joint to rest between the bones, facilitating movement and restoring flexibility within your shoulder.
After your shoulder replacement surgery is complete, you will be given specific guidelines for activities to avoid and ones to perform during your recovery period. Movements like mild stretches will help restore the flexibility within your shoulder so you can return to an active lifestyle. Our orthopedic team will walk with you through your recovery period to ensure your shoulder is healing properly after the procedure.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.
