Shoulder replacement surgery relieves pain, improves function

Bob DuBree is among the Loyola Medicine patients who have seen dramatic benefits from shoulder replacement surgery. Arthritis left Mr. DuBree so disabled that he could not raise either arm above his chin, and his shoulders hurt so much he had trouble sleeping. Orthopaedic surgeon, Nickolas Garbis, MD, performed joint-replacement surgery on both of Mr. DuBree’s shoulders. Now, Mr. DuBree has nearly full range of motion, and his shoulders are pain-free. “The results have been phenomenal,” he said.
