Shoulder Replacement

Arthritis in the shoulder joint causes pain when bones in the joint rub together. For shoulder replacement surgery, the damaged bone in the shoulder is removed, and then the surgeon resurfaces the bone and implants a replacement shoulder joint. Prosthetic joints are made of plastic or metal and your surgeon will select the one that matches your body’s build.
