Kevin Supple, MD discusses two effective total shoulder replacement options for the arthritic shoulder. Shoulder replacement surgery is a type of orthopaedic surgery that replaces the ends of bones in the shoulder joint, by removing a damaged or arthritic joint and replacing it with artificial materials. Joint replacement surgery is commonly performed when a patient suffers from severe joint pain, stiffness, or immobility because the cartilage of the affected joint is so damaged/arthritic.

In this video, Dr. Kevin Supple describes the anatomy of the shoulder and explains the difference between the two effective procedure options for shoulder replacement: total shoulder arthroplasty & reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.
