Go to Surgery Guidance for more information.
If your follow-up appointment has not already been scheduled, please call Dr. Jurek’s office on the next business day to schedule your appointment to be seen approximately 7-10 days following surgery.
Answers to many postoperative questions may be found under Surgery Guidance. A video showing how to adjust the shoulder immobilizer is located in the Brace Information section.
In the future, any time when you have surgery, dental work, or develop an infection of any kind (e.g. bladder, tooth, ear, respiratory) you MUST notify your surgeon, dentist, or doctor that you have had an artificial shoulder joint replacement. In these situations, antibiotics are often used to prevent an infection in the artificial shoulder joint. Call your doctor’s office if you have any further questions or concerns.
