Types of Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Shoulder Replacement Surgery involves replacing the natural ball and socket joints with implants depending upon the severity of the condition. The surgery is generally performed on fractures that are non-re-constructible or a worn-out painful joint. A holistic rehabilitation program post-op will significantly help the patients recover from the surgery quickly and easily. There are essentially three types of surgeries followed:
- Total Shoulder Replacement– Here the ball of the shoulder joint is replaced with a metallic ball implant and is attached to the bone. The socket is resurfaced with a new plastic covering.
- Partial Shoulder Replacement– Only the balls of the socket are implanted.
- Reverse Shoulder Replacement- This surgery is performed on patients with torn rotator cuff or when other shoulder replacement surgeries cannot be performed.
