What is Shoulder Replacement?
Shoulder Replacement is a highly effective procedure for individuals with deteriorated or injured shoulder joints. It replaces damaged components with prosthetic ones, relieving pain and associated symptoms. Initially used for fractures, it’s now preferred for various conditions, including arthritis. Recommended when medications don’t work, surgeons remove damaged fragments to make space for prosthetics.
What are the different types of Shoulder Replacement?
Shoulder Joint Replacement procedures encompass a range of options:
Anatomic Shoulder Replacement: Both components of the shoulder joint, the ball and socket, are replaced.
Partial Shoulder Replacement: Only the ball part of the shoulder joint is replaced.
