Benefits of Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Benefits of Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Each year in the US, roughly 53,000 shoulder replacements are performed.1 The technological advancements in implant material and design have allowed this vital surgery to be done on an outpatient basis using minimally invasive techniques. You can recover in the comfort of your own home following your surgery. The benefits of shoulder replacement surgery allow active patients to return to an improved quality of life and activities they enjoy.

A shoulder replacement surgery relieves pain and restores function effectively while removing the damaged parts of the shoulder and replacing them with prosthetic parts to restore joint function and mobility. Shoulder implants typically last between 10-20 years. In patients 65 years and older, a new shoulder can last for the rest of their lives.2

You may be a candidate for shoulder replacement surgery if you have the following symptoms:

  • Your shoulder pain is so severe that you struggle with everyday activities such as getting dressed and bathing.
  • You have a loss of motion in your shoulder.
  • You have weakness in your shoulder.
  • You have chronic and severe pain, preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep.
  • You’ve tried anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, and physical therapy with no relief.

Research shows 95% of shoulder replacement patients will be pain-free, with only 5% experiencing weather-related aches and occasional overuse pains.3 Most people also have an improved range of motion and strength. The benefits of shoulder replacement surgery are many, enabling you to return to your active lifestyle and enjoy the activities that you have missed.
