I have a question about shoulder replacement surgery

What is a total shoulder replacement?

This is an operation to replace your shoulder, if you have been suffering from pain due to arthritis of the shoulder.

Why would I have a total shoulder replacement?

You may have been recommended to have this surgery as you have arthritis of the shoulder, which causes pain and stiffness in the joint.

What happens during a total shoulder replacement?

Your surgeon will make a cut on the front of your shoulder and remove the damaged ball (head of the humerus). They will then examine the socket which lies on your shoulder blade and will replace the ball and sometimes also the socket. There are many types of shoulder replacement available and your surgeon will discuss the options with you. Your shoulder replacement is fixed into the bone using a special coating on your arms side of your shoulder joint. Your shoulder-blade side is usually fixed using acrylic cement. Your surgeon will close your skin with stitches or clips.
