Shoulder replacement surgery is considered for patients whose shoulder joints have been damaged by progressive arthritis, trauma, or other rare destructive diseases of the joint.
Regardless of the cause of the damage to the joint, the resulting progressively increasing pain and stiffness and decreasing daily function lead the patient to consider total shoulder replacement.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a degenerative or inflammatory disease of the joints that is not necessarily part of the normal ageing process.

As sections of the cartilage are worn away, bare bone is exposed in the ball and socket joint. As the bone surfaces rub against each other, As the bone surfaces rub against each other, The pain is often worse at night, especially when trying to sleep on the side.

Cuff Tear Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body’s cells and tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. Chronic inflammation of joint leads to the destruction of the cartilage, bone, and ligaments, causing deformity of the joints. Damage to the joints can occur early in the disease and be progressive. The goal of shoulder replacement surgery is to resurface/replace the parts of the shoulder joint that have been damaged and to relieve shoulder pain that cannot be controlled by other treatments.
