Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder Replacement Surgery is available to patients who have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis or other chronic degenerative changes of the shoulder. Chronic pain or reduced function of the shoulder can occur after acute or chronic injuries have damaged the shoulder joint or surrounding tendons and ligaments.

Shoulder replacement is available when the shoulder joint is stiff, painful, or damaged, usually a result of arthritis, and when conservative measures – pain medication, injections, and physical therapy are no longer effective in managing symptoms.

What to Expect with Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Shoulder Replacement surgery involves removing damaged portions of the shoulder and replacing the bony surfaces with man-made prosthetic implants. The surgery repositions the shoulder into proper alignment and replicates the original function, allowing for a near normal range of motion for the patient.

Our surgeon will be able to discuss the recommended technique and prosthetic to suit your needs. During a consultation, we will review the procedure including the risks, benefits, recovery, and life after the procedure. It is important to remember that Shoulder Replacement is still major surgery. Please keep in mind that setbacks and complications can still happen and there is always going to be post-operative pain and swelling. It is important to remember that everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic, but in our experience, the techniques and protocols used by our surgeons and anaesthetists allows for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your old self.
