Shoulders

Although shoulder joint replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. Shoulder joint replacement is used for many other painful conditions of the shoulder, such as different forms of arthritis.

If nonsurgical treatments such as medications and activity changes no longer relieve your pain, you may want to consider shoulder joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume everyday activities.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement

In addition to standard shoulder joint replacements, orthopedic surgeons also perform reverse shoulder replacements, which may be used in situations where the shoulder has more extensive damage or if a previous shoulder replacement has failed.
