San Angelo Orthopedic Surgery

Cutting-Edge Surgical Procedures

Orthopedic surgery is designed to address both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Whether you suffer from ligament damage, arthritis, muscle tears, or joint dislocations, you shouldn’t have to live with debilitating pain. At Shannon, our orthopedic specialists use the most advanced imaging equipment to properly diagnose the issue, and we walk you through all of your treatment options, so you can make the most informed decision about your health. Our team will exhaust non-surgical treatments before recommending surgery—but if surgical intervention is necessary, our experts will be by your side every step of the way.

Our surgery treatments include:

  • Robotic-assisted, minimally invasive procedures
  • Latest technology and surgical methods
  • Complex hip and knee joint reconstruction
  • Arthroscopic repair of the hip, shoulder, and knee
  • Total hip, knee, and shoulder replacement
  • General orthopedic surgeries
  • Hand and foot procedures
  • Complex foot and ankle procedures

Our surgical unit is newly renovated to maximize your care and comfort. It is staffed by specially-trained nursing staff with advanced skill in orthopedic care, and provides access to an interdisciplinary team to address all aspects of your recovery, including physical therapy, nutrition, pharmacy, respiratory services, and case management.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Treatments

At Shannon, we are proud to be a leader in minimally invasive surgical procedures with our innovative arthroscopy solutions. Unlike traditional surgery, which requires a large incision, arthroscopy uses only two or three small, pen-size incisions. This produces less scar tissue while also creating a smoother, more comfortable, healing and recovery process, so you can get back into daily activities sooner.

Our arthroscopic procedures are typically used for those under 50 years of age where nonsurgical options have proven ineffective. Common conditions this cutting-edge treatment can address include hip impingement, rotator cuff tendon tears, cartilage tears, ACL tears, and loose cartilage fragments.

Joint Replacement Surgery in San Angelo

Hip, Knee & Shoulder Replacement Solutions

Our orthopedic surgeon specialists utilize state-of-the-art robotic technology to assist with complex joint replacement surgery. The Stryker Mako Robotic-arm system utilizes advanced instrumentation and 3D high-definition views to assist your surgeon in offering the most minimally invasive joint replacement surgeries possible. After our surgical team thoroughly cleans out the damaged area, we will implant the artificial joint. Usually made out of a combination of metal, ceramic, and medical-grade plastic, this prosthetic integrates with the rest of your body to restore function.

Prior to surgery, our team encourages you to attend the Joint Connection class. This educational session provides vital information to help patients before, during, and after surgery. It includes education on how to best plan for surgery, what to expect during your treatment, and how to continue care once you return home. It also offers information for those who will be caring for you at home to better understand the entire treatment process.

The class is taught by our interdisciplinary team, so you can meet everyone who will be involved in your care at Shannon. Our goal is to provide you with as much information in advance as possible so that you can feel stress-free during your stay with us.

You don’t have to live with musculoskeletal discomfort, and our orthopedic surgeons are here to help you find relief.

Joint Connection Class

The Shannon Orthopedic Center encourages knee and hip replacement patients to attend The Joint Connection class before surgery, which offers vital information about the entire treatment process, including pre-surgery preparations, hospital visits, post-surgery care, and educating home caregivers. The class, taught by our interdisciplinary team, allows patients to meet their care providers and aims to provide comprehensive information in advance for a relaxed and stress-free stay.
