Total Shoulder Replacement
Orthopaedic Procedures in West Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties
The final stages of arthritis often result in total erosion of the cartilage,
leaving a bone-to-bone socket joint that is extremely painful. The smooth
surfaces of the joint wear away, creating two rough surfaces that
grind against each other with each movement. In late stage osteoarthritis, procedures are chiefly
designed to relieve pain, with some restoration of function and strength.
The good news is that total shoulder replacement—or shoulder arthroplasty—is
often successful and results in largely positive outcomes. According to
Edward Craig, the professor of orthopaedic surgery at Cornell, the
majority of patients who undergo shoulder replacement are able to take up their
pre-injury sports and activities.
