An XRAY of a Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder replacement exchanges the worn and torn surfaces of your shoulder with new low-friction surfaces, likely consisting of a polished metal surface on one side and a special space-age polymer on the other.

If you are suffering from pain from arthritis and similar problems, these new surfaces will remove the most significant source of your pain and restore a new gliding surface. Most patients who have a shoulder replacement, also called "shoulder arthroplasty," have tried other treatments such as injections, oral medications, and physical therapy.

Implants are specially sized to suit the size of your bones, and your existing muscles, tendons, and ligaments can be used more freely to restore comfortable motion and improve function.
