Online Seminar- Shoulder Replacement: Anatomic vs. Reverse

photo of Dr. JacksonLiving with shoulder pain can negatively impact your quality of life and make everyday activities more difficult. One solution may be a shoulder replacement. The goal of a shoulder replacement is to eliminate the source of pain and dysfunction by replacing damaged parts of the shoulder joint. The procedure is meant to relieve your pain, improve your strength, increase your range of motion, and enable you to use your shoulder and arm to improve your quality of life.

Dr. James Jackson, Memorial’s newest orthopedic surgeon, who is fellowship-trained in sports medicine, will explain the difference between anatomic shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement. With over 70,000 shoulder replacements in the United States each year, anatomic and reverse shoulder replacements are the most common, but logistically have their differences. Dr. Jackson is accepting new patients at the Memorial medical office building at 4345 Nelson Road in Lake Charles. For more information or to make an appointment, call 337.494.4900
