Shoulder Replacement at [[Hospital Name]]
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint like the hip. But unlike the hip, which is less mobile and more stable, the shoulder has a range of motion of 180 degrees. With that mobility comes a lack of stability, making it more vulnerable to wear and tear, injury and occasional dislocation.
Sports such as tennis and golf can be hard on your shoulders, but simple everyday activities like reaching into an overhead cupboard can also take a toll. Arthritis in the shoulder is one of the most common reasons patients need shoulder replacement.
Using advanced imaging technology, our shoulder doctors at [[Hospital Name]] can provide a diagnosis and develop a customized treatment plan for you. Shoulder replacement surgery, which is less common than hip or knee replacement but can be just as successful in relieving joint pain, may be an option.
