Routine and Complex Care

Until it is injured most people don’t realize how important the shoulder is to their every day activities. It has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body and needs to have the right balance of strength, flexibility and stability to prevent pain and injury. Specialized expertise is often needed to repair damage or undo previous failed surgeries.

Shoulder surgery can be complex and our shoulder specialist, Dr. Damion Harris, has had specialized training in shoulder surgery including shoulder replacement surgery, also called shoulder arthroplasty that is a successful, pain-relieving option for many people.

In addition to regular shoulder replacement, Dr. Harris is one of the few surgeons in Indiana who is trained to perform reverse shoulder arthoplasty. This surgical procedure is often used for people who have shoulder arthritis coupled with an irrepairable rotator cuff tear or those with very complex shoulder problems, including previous failed surgical treatments
