Total or partial joint replacement with a prosthetic joint has become a more common treatment to relieve pain and restore independence. Most joint replacements are done for hips and knees, but shoulder replacement is becoming more and more popular as a remedy for arthritis and fractures of the shoulder. Shoulder replacement is recommended to repair painful arthritic shoulders and increase limited motion. The treatment can replace the head of the humerus or the entire shoulder joint.
Surgical Options for Shoulder Replacement
If your surgeon finds that surgery is needed, there are several types of shoulder replacement procedures. Replacing or reshaping the damaged or diseased joint with a prosthetic one is called arthroplasty. Depending on your age, overall health, and your specific shoulder joint problem, your surgeon may recommend:
partial shoulder replacement
