Shoulder Replacement options at KDH
If you experience significant pain or weakness in your shoulder joint as the result of osteoarthritis, injury, or damage to the tendons and muscles that form what is known as your rotator cuff, talk with us about your options. Some patients may also suffer from a fracture in the shoulder, known as a humeral fracture. During shoulder replacement surgery, the worn or damaged parts of the shoulder joint are replaced, similar to knee and hip surgery. The patient receives a new ball-and-socket joint. Your orthopedic shoulder surgeon will discuss the specific techniques to be used, based on your condition. Physical therapy and other rehabilitation therapies are an important part of your successful recovery. Our team of joint replacement surgeons will provide you with a step-by-step guide in advance of your procedure to make sure your shoulder surgery goes well.
