The Area’s Most Advanced Shoulder Treatment

Get Expert Care from Our Dedicated Shoulder Specialists

The joints and muscles in your shoulders are vital to your ability to perform everyday tasks such as lifting, carrying, driving, and writing. In fact, the shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. Your shoulder is less stable than other joints because the ball (the humerus) is larger than the socket (the glenoid) that holds it. So, when you dislocate your shoulder or start to experience pain or discomfort in these ball-and-socket joints, it’s important to get the right care as soon as possible.

To provide relief from shoulder pain caused by injury or inflammation, OrthoUnited physicians can use conservative methods such as medications and physical therapy or arthroplasty surgery, if required. Shoulder replacement removes the damaged or diseased joint and replaces it with an artificial shoulder implant (prosthesis) that is designed to move like a normal, healthy joint. Our highly-respected shoulder specialists provide advanced treatment for these complex joints that you rely on every single day. When shoulder pain is keeping you from doing what you love, put your trust in our talented doctors!

Our Patients Say It Best

“From the first visit with Dr. Eschbaugh I was so impressed.”
-Lela B
“This is the second time I used the services at OrthoUnited. I dislocated my left shoulder and damaged my ligaments, tendons & muscles. I am still receiving the Rehab program that they gave. The Team of Specialists is unbelievable. Most of the pain is gone and I should be done by the end of September. I cannot thank my team for everything they have done. As far and the doctors go, you can't beat them. I used Dr. Papacostas for my broken femur and Dr. Hellman for my shoulder. If someone would ask me where to go, it would be OrthoUnited. The care you receive is excellent. You will feel like you have known the doctors and staff for years.”
“Very courteous and professional about the way they explain and do everything.”
-Kevin H
“My doctor M Bickett is amazing. My daughter was given updates from her immediately after surgery. My shoulder is coming along good according to my therapist. Thank you everyone involved.”
-Aileen K
“Absolutely wonderful experience from preparation, to surgery, to post surgery physical therapy. Dr. Lykens did a great job with this total reverse shoulder replacement. All staff are thoroughly professional and competent. Appointments on time and call backs received promptly. First class all the way. Highly recommend”
-Gail M
