SHOULDER
Arthritis of the shoulder is a devastating condition that seriously compromises the comfort and function of the shoulder. When the symptoms of shoulder arthritis are severe, shoulder joint replacement becomes a consideration.

Shoulder Replacement
Though shoulder replacement gives painfree and reasonably moving shoulder joint it is not without problems. Normal bone is sacrificed during surgery unnecessarily. Since the bone is reamed and a big stem is inserted sometimes the bone fractures during surgery and even after surgery. This is a very difficult problem to treat. Cement related problems are also quite common. When the prosthesis becomes loose the revision surgery is even more difficult.

Shoulder Resurfacing

It is a surgical procedure that allows patients to retain much of their natural tissue, by replacing only the diseased part of the joint instead of the entire joint. Shoulder Resurfacing is less traumatic, less invasive and more bone preserving procedure. The results of shoulder resurfacing is far better than conventional Shoulder Replacement.
