What Is Shoulder Replacement Surgery?

What Is Shoulder Replacement Surgery?

One of the most common procedures that I perform from day to day is a shoulder replacement.

Much like other joints in the body the shoulder is subject to developing arthritis.

Arthritis is when those smooth surfaces on the end of our joint wear out and they become rough. They develop bone spurs. People lose their range of motion, they develop pain. It can be pretty debilitating from day to day.

And so through shoulder replacement surgery we’re able to restore function.

We’re able to eliminate pain get people back doing the things that they enjoy doing and help them improve their quality of life.
