Shoulder Resurfacing Surgery in South Florida
For patients with shoulder arthritis, the contact surface between the ball
and socket of the shoulder joint becomes worn down and uneven. This limits
movement in the shoulder and makes movement extremely painful. Later stage
arthritis procedures replace the humerus head with an artificial joint,
but for younger patients, resurfacing might be a better option, according
to a recent article from the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Shoulder resurfacing places a prosthesis that replaces the natural cartilage
that has worn away, but it keeps the humerus head. The benefit of this
procedure is a greater likelihood of positive outcomes because the maximum
amount of bone is kept. The operation can eliminate joint pain, restore
mobility, and create stronger stability in the joint.
