Your shoulder pain, weakness or stiffness may be the result of an injury, overuse or arthritis, but
you don't have to live with it. Shoulder replacement surgery can ease your pain and get your shoulder functioning normally again. Shoulder replacement surgery in the U.S. dates back to the 1950s. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons estimates that more than 53,000 shoulder replacements are performed in the U.S. each year. The procedure treats everything from fractures and rotator cuff injuries, to arthritis and degenerative joint diseases. In general, shoulder replacement surgery replaces damaged parts of the shoulder with manmade components. Depending on the extent of your injury or condition, your doctor may need to replace just the head of the humerus bone called the ball (partial shoulder replacement) or replace both the ball and socket (total shoulder replacement).
