Shoulder care

Baylor University Medical Center offers a full array of surgical procedures to correct shoulder pain and other conditions of the shoulder, as well as some procedures that are not widely available, including:

  • Minimally invasive, all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs without implants
  • Customized patient-specific “anatomic” reverse total shoulder replacement
  • Revision shoulder surgeries, including revision shoulder replacement

Baylor University Medical Center also has significant experience in shoulder replacement and revision shoulder replacement surgery using current, minimally invasive technology.

We use the expanded indications for “reverse” shoulder arthroplasty to help patients regain full functionality of the shoulder, providing pain relief and increased mobility that was previously not possible using older, standard shoulder replacements.
