Shoulder replacement surgery, also known as shoulder arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased shoulder joint is replaced with a prosthetic joint.
The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint, which allows for a wide range of motion in the arm. However, due to injury, arthritis, or other medical conditions, the joint can become damaged and painful, making it difficult to move the arm. Shoulder replacement surgery is often recommended when other treatments, such as medication and physical therapy, have not provided adequate relief.
During the surgery, the damaged parts of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with a prosthetic joint made of metal, plastic, or a combination of both. There are two main types of shoulder replacement surgery: total shoulder replacement, which replaces both the ball and socket of the joint, and partial shoulder replacement, which only replaces the ball of the joint.
