Total Shoulder Joint Replacement
Relief for your shoulder pain
If non-surgical treatments such as medications or changes in your activities are no longer helpful in relieving your shoulder pain, you may want to consider shoulder joint replacement surgery. Shoulder joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective way to relieve shoulder pain to help you resume everyday activities.
Total shoulder replacement involves replacing the joint ball and the socket with an implant (prosthesis). Implants contain a ball with a stem that extends down inside the upper arm bone (humerus) and a socket that is placed over the surface of the glenoid. Replacement of both the humeral head and the socket is called a total shoulder replacement.
