What Is Total Shoulder Replacement Surgery?
Total shoulder replacement is a surgical procedure that removes osteoarthritic bone and replaces it with metal and plastic components.
These components mimic the anatomy and function of a healthy shoulder so that you can return to activities without the pain caused by arthritis.
Total shoulder replacement is very effective at restoring range of motion and improving quality of life. The procedure may be performed on an outpatient basis, although most times an overnight hospital stay is necessary.
The Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons at OrthoNeuro have performed thousands of total shoulder replacements and are experts in this procedure.
