Tired of your Chronic Shoulder Pain? Kevin Supple, MD discusses two effective total shoulder replacement options.
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.
