Gators News · Shoulder Pain and Shoulder Injuries Can Be Treated – Presented by Henry Community Health


Until it was injured, you probably didn’t realize how important your shoulder is to your everyday activities. It has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body and needs to have the right balance of strength, flexibility and stability to prevent pain and injury. There’s no need to suffer with the pain and stop doing what you like to do.

Recently added to the Panther’s Sports Medicine page, we feature Dr. Harris, who has specialized expertise and training in complex shoulder surgery including shoulder replacement surgery, also called shoulder arthroplasty that is a successful, pain-relieving option for many people.

Dr. Harris recently received a PRC Award for being in the top 5% in the Nation for Overall Doctor Rating. He was compared to 2,293 other surgical specialist providers who participate in the PRC phone surveys which measure patient’s satisfaction with their provider. Dr. Harris impressively scored 100 percent ‘Excellent’ among the patients who completed a survey for him.

To see what pain relieving options are available for your shoulder, call for an appointment with Dr. Harris at Henry County Center for Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine in New Castle at 765.521.7385.
