HG - Shoulder Replacement - Secondary

Considering Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder pain treatment typically begins with pain management, rehabilitation and physical therapy. However, if the degeneration is severe enough, the orthopedic shoulder surgeon may recommend shoulder replacement.

During shoulder replacement surgery, orthopedic shoulder doctors can replace your joint with an artificial one, easing pain and restoring range of motion. Reverse shoulder replacement, which reverses the positions of the ball and socket joints, may be recommended for patients to repair large rotator cuff tears.
