If non-surgical treatments and medication do not bring relief and restore mobility, your doctor may recommend shoulder replacement. Shoulder replacement is a surgery performed to replace the arthritic ends of bone and damaged cartilage with prosthetic implants designed to move like a healthy shoulder.
Surgery may be appropriate when you have the following symptoms:
- Severe shoulder pain that restricts daily activities
- Moderate to severe pain during rest
- Weakness and/or loss of motion
Our team of fellowship-trained shoulder specialists use the latest techniques to treat patients with persistent pain, decreased shoulder strength or reduced range of motion.
