What is Shoulder Replacement Surgery?

The shoulder replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is typically recommended when the shoulder joint gets severely damaged. The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint that connects the shoulder to the body. The bone is a little curved and has a round end that fits the upper arm bone to the shoulder joint. If any of the bone that connects the shoulder joint gets crushed due to any injury. In that case, the orthopedic doctor suggests an artificial shoulder implant to restore the mobility of the hand in order to increase the quality of life.

Shoulder Replacement- Diagnosis and Surgery

Diagnosis for Shoulder Replacement Surgery

An orthopedic doctor will conduct a physical examination. The examination is done to assess the severity of the condition. During the physical examination, the doctor checks the tenderness by putting slight pressure around the affected shoulder area with fingertips. The doctor may also recommend a few diagnostic tests to get clear images of the damaged tissues and bone around the shoulder joint. The following are some imaging tests that can be advised-

  • MRI
  • X-Ray

Shoulder Replacement  Surgery in Chennai

Arthroplasty is an advanced surgical procedure performed with the help of an arthroscope. In this procedure, an orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions to probe surgical tools to replace the damaged joint with an artificial shoulder implant. After completing the shoulder replacement surgery, an orthopedic doctor secures the surgical site by covering it with a bandage. Later, you will be shifted to the observation room. Once the anesthesia wears off, the nurse will check your vitals to check for any odd sign post shoulder arthroplasty.
