Shoulder Replacement — Reducing Your Pain

Shoulder replacement surgery, or shoulder arthroplasty, relieves pain from severe arthritis or injury and restores range of motion. It involves implanting part or all of a prosthetic (or artificial) ball and socket device made from metal and plastic.

We offer patients, even those with failed shoulder fracture surgery or rotator cuff tears, options for pain relief and improved function.

Candidates for Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • Experience shoulder pain or stiffness that interferes with your daily life
  • Have pain that wakes you up at night
  • Are unable to move your arms above your head or have limited range of motion
  • Have tried nonsurgical treatments such as medicines, physical therapy, and injections, without success

Types of Shoulder Replacement Surgery We Offer

Types of shoulder replacement surgery we offer include:

  • Total shoulder replacement: Where the ball of the arm bone and shoulder blade socket are replaced with prosthetic pieces. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the device.
  • Partial shoulder replacement: Only the ball part of the joint is replaced. Partial shoulder replacement can be an option when the shoulder socket is still in good condition. It’s also called hemiarthroplasty.
  • Shoulder replacement revision: Repairs issues or unresolved pain from a previous shoulder replacement surgery.
