Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery is not as common as knee or hip replacement, it is however successful in relieving shoulder joint pain if non-surgical treatment like medications or physical therapy do not help.
In the shoulder joint where the upper arm connects to the body is called a ball and socket joint. This helps one to move their arms in upward, downward, forward and backward motion. Humerus (bone in the upper arm) has a round end; hence it can fit into the curved structure on the outside of the shoulder blade. It is held together by ligaments that connect the bones and tendons that connect the muscles to the bone. Cartilage (a layer of tissue), helps to keep the bones apart to prevent them to rub against each other.
Shoulder replacement surgery is suggested to patients with serious shoulder injury like a broken bone, ones with severe arthritis or patients whose rotator cuff tears.
