The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint that allows the arm to rotate in a circular fashion with the ability to hinge out, up and away from the body.
As you might expect, there are many different reasons why you could be feeling shoulder pain.
Shoulder replacement surgery replaces the damaged bone and cartilage of the joint with polyethylene (a plastic material) and metallic components.
Before undergoing shoulder replacement, your doctor will prescribe a complete physical examination to assess your condition and limit negative factors that could interfere with your operation.
The surgical procedure will take about 1.5 hours.
Specialized personnel will take care of your recovery by defining the most suitable rehabilitation program for you and accompany you through the recovery process.
Lead a healthy and active life.
In case of fever, throat inflammation or any infection, tell your doctor that you have a shoulder implant.
