The Inova Shoulder Replacement Program offers coordinated care for patients whose arthritis or other musculoskeletal issues require shoulder joint replacement surgery.
Every year, thousands of patients experience improved quality of life after shoulder replacement surgery. A well-performed procedure can alleviate pain, improve motion, strength and function, and help patients return to the activities they enjoy.
In 2016 Inova Alexandria Hospital became the first hospital in the Washington metropolitan area, and the second in Virginia, to earn the Gold Seal of Approval® for outstanding care in shoulder replacement. In addition, both Inova Mount Vernon and Inova Alexandria Hospitals have been nationally accredited and certified by The Joint Commission, earning a Gold Seal of Approval™ for outstanding care in joint replacement procedures.
