Conventional Shoulder Replacement

Arthritis of the shoulder can be a result of injury or chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. When conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications and steroid injections have failed, shoulder replacement surgery can provide complete and lasting relief of pain.

The techniques for performing shoulder replacement are different from those of hip and knee replacement, and require special skill and training. Some factors such as the function of the rotator cuff are also important in selecting the right type of replacement for each patient.

Partial shoulder replacement, conventional total shoulder replacement, and reverse total shoulder replacement should all be considered for patients prior to surgery.

If you have been diagnosed with arthritis of your shoulder please contact Dr. Christoforetti for consultation!
