Care for Your Shoulder

From sudden injury to long-term wear and tear, a healthy shoulder is key to a high quality of life. The comprehensive orthopedics team at JRMC is here to help you get back to work, back in the game and back on your feet. JRMC Orthopedics focuses on quick and complete recoveries.

The first step is diagnosis. This usually requires a medical examination and diagnostic procedures like x-ray, MRI, CT scan or arthroscopy. The next step is treatment. Not every shoulder challenge requires surgery. Less invasive procedures are available and JRMC Rehabilitation offers additional resources like physical therapy, occupational therapy and dry needling

We make scheduling quick and easy.
Schedule online, anytime. Or call (701) 952-4878.

Ralph Danuser, JRMC welcomes public to breakfast in Dickey, N.D.

When Ralph Danuser needed care for his two shoulders and one knee, he asked for Jamestown Regional Medical Center. JRMC Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Michael T. Dean, repaired Danuser’s joints so Danuser could repair his farm equipment – just in time for spring.
