How is the Shoulder Replacement performed?
The shoulder joint is a ball & socket joint, where the arm(head of humerus) in a ball shape fits into the cavity/socket named as glenoid cavity. When the ball & the socket are degenerated due to any disease or trauma, then they are replaced with the help of the artificial implant.
Incision is made on the front of the shoulder and the damaged cartilage and bone spurs(if any) are removed.
The head of the humerus is replaced by a press fit highly polished metal ball with a stem.
The socket (glenoid cavity) is also shaved off and a plastic or polyethylene socket is fixed.
Both these implants are fixed either without or with cement, depending upon the patient’s age and bony conditions.
The rotator cuff (Muscles surrounding the shoulder joint) is closed and incision is closed afterwards followed by a bandage.
