Shoulder replacement

When nonsurgical options like physical therapy and medication fail to relieve chronic shoulder pain, you may need shoulder replacement surgery to relieve pain and restore mobility. During the procedure, an orthopedic surgeon will remove the damaged parts of your shoulder and replace with them artificial components.

Shoulder replacement surgery

Shoulder replacement surgery involves removing damaged areas of the shoulder and replacing them with a customized, prosthetic ball-and-socket device. Some conditions that could require shoulder replacement surgery include:

Shoulder fractures

Trauma may cause a fracture of the humerus (long bone in the upper arm) or the glenoid (the socket of the ball-and-socket joint) of the shoulder. Most shoulder fractures can be treated without surgery, but if a fracture is unlikely to heal, surgery is often the best option.

Shoulder arthritis

Shoulder arthritis occurs when cartilage wears down on the ball and/or socket sides of the shoulder joint. Damage to the cartilage inside the shoulder joint may cause pain, stiffness and reduced range of motion.

Wear and tear of the shoulder

Aging and repeated overhead activities can lead to tears of the rotator cuff tendon and rotator cuff disease. This can cause pain and limited range of motion when lifting items or reaching overhead.
