Shoulder Replacement (Shoulder Joint Arthroplasty)

Shoulder joint replacement, also known as shoulder arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that often is a safe and effective solution for relieving pain and helping you resume everyday activities if nonsurgical shoulder pain treatments such as medications and activity changes are no longer helpful.

Several conditions can cause you to experience shoulder pain and disability, and to cause you to consider having shoulder joint replacement surgery. They include osteoarthritis (also known as degenerative joint disease), rheumatoid arthritis, and if you’ve undergone shoulder replacement surgery previously without lasting success.

There are several reasons why your orthopedic specialist may recommend shoulder replacement surgery. You may benefit from this type of procedure if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: severe shoulder pain that interferes with everyday activities such as reaching into a cabinet, dressing, and washing; moderate to severe pain while resting; loss of motion and/or weakness in your shoulder; and failure to substantially improve with other treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, or physical therapy.

Signature Medical Group’s practitioners are board-certified orthopedic surgeons whose expertise, experience, and leadership in their profession translate into exceptional medical care and treatment for you.
