The shoulder joint is a ball and socket type of joint. Shoulder replacement surgery, also known as total shoulder arthroplasty, involves replacing the fractured ends of the upper arm bone (humerus) and, in most cases, the shoulder bone (scapula) with artificial implants to relieve pain and restore range of motion.
In individuals with end-stage shoulder arthritis, shoulder replacement is a highly beneficial operation for reducing pain and restoring mobility. The operation relieves discomfort and aids in the restoration of shoulder motion, strength, and function.
Despite the fact that shoulder joint replacement is less prevalent than knee or hip replacement, it is just as effective in relieving joint discomfort.
In the 1950s, the first shoulder replacement surgery was conducted in the United States to address serious shoulder fractures. Over time, shoulder joint replacement has grown to be used for a variety of additional painful shoulder disorders, such as various forms of arthritis.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, about 70,000 people in the United States receive shoulder replacement surgery each year. In comparison, almost 900,000 Americans get knee and hip replacement surgery each year.
Indications of Shoulder Replacement:ong>
Shoulder replacements are of various different types. Before making any recommendations, your surgeon will carefully assess your circumstances. They'll talk to you about which sort of replacement is best for you. Do not hesitate to inquire about the type of implant that will be utilized in your case, as well as why that particular option is the best option for you.
The most standard total shoulder replacement involves replacing the arthritic joint surfaces using a metal ball attached to a stem, and a plastic socket.
These components are available in a variety of sizes. They can be glued or pressed into place in the bone. Your surgeon may opt for a non-cemented (press-fit) humeral component if the bone is of acceptable quality.
The humeral component may be implanted with bone cement if the bone is soft. In most situations, bone cement is used to implant an all-plastic glenoid (socket) component.
Patients with bone-on-bone osteoarthritis and healthy rotator cuff tendons are usually good candidates for total shoulder replacement.
Depending on your shoulder's condition, the surgeon may merely replace the ball. Hemiarthroplasty is the name for this treatment.
The surgeon replaces the head of the humerus with a metal ball and stem, identical to the component used in a total shoulder replacement, in a typical hemiarthroplasty. A stemmed hemiarthroplasty is the term for this procedure.
When the humeral head is severely shattered but the socket is normal, some surgeons propose hemiarthroplasty. The following are some more reasons for a hemiarthroplasty:
In some cases, doctors choose between a total shoulder replacement and a hemiarthroplasty in the operating room during surgery.
Total shoulder arthroplasty relieves pain better than hemiarthroplasty in patients with osteoarthritis, according to studies.
Resurfacing hemiarthroplasty includes replacing only the humeral head's joint surface with a cap-like prosthesis that does not have a stem. It provides a bone-preserving alternative to the traditional stemmed shoulder replacement for patients with arthritis of the shoulder. It is recommended in patients where:
Resurfacing hemiarthroplasty eliminates the hazards of component wear and loosening that might arise with traditional complete shoulder replacements in patients who are young or very active. Resurfacing hemiarthroplasty may be easier to convert to total shoulder replacement later if necessary, because to its more conservative nature.
Reverse total shoulder replacement is a different form of shoulder replacement. People who need a reverse complete shoulder replacement have:
Even with a traditional total shoulder replacement, these people may have pain. They may also find it difficult to raise their arm above a 90-degree angle. It can be extremely debilitating to be unable to move your arm away from your side.
The socket and metal ball are switched in a reverse complete shoulder replacement: The shoulder bone is linked to a metal ball, while the upper arm bone is attached to a plastic socket. This permits the patient to elevate the arm using the deltoid muscle rather than the damaged rotator cuff.
An older patient with severe pain from degenerative shoulder arthritis – pain that hasn't responded to conservative treatment but hasn't substantially reduced the patient's range of motion in the shoulder – is the best candidate for total shoulder replacement surgery.
Patients with bone-on-bone osteoarthritis and healthy rotator cuff tendons are usually good candidates for total shoulder replacement.
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for shoulder replacement in India.
Prepare to answer questions about your:
To access the shoulder in a generally nerve-free area, the surgeon separates the deltoid and pectoral muscles (to minimize nerve damage). One of the front muscles of the rotator cuff, which covers the shoulder, is sliced to open the shoulder. The surgeon may now see and manipulate the arthritic components of the shoulder ball and socket because this "opens the door."
The joint's arthritic parts are removed. The implant socket, ball, and stem are all placed. The stem, which extends down within the patient's humerus, is linked to the metal ball component.
The rotator cuff muscle incision is closed and patched. The external (skin-level) incision is cleaned and repaired, and a bandage is applied to protect the wound.
The outcomes of shoulder replacement surgery are highly encouraging. Approximately 95% of people who have shoulder replacements are pain-free. Shoulder replacement can help you live a better life by reducing joint pain, increasing range of motion, and improving your quality of life. It may take a few months before you realize all of the benefits of the procedure.
Patients usually need eight weeks or longer to recover. A patient may not be able to conduct heavy labor or intensive strength exercises for several months. The patient can begin unrestricted, active use of the arm and shoulder in 6-8 weeks. Throughout the course of physical treatment, mobility improves. In two to three weeks, one can return to work.
Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.
The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

Shoulder replacement is not as commonly performed as knee and hip replacement, but is a very effective procedure. Every year, around 70,000 people in the United States shoulder replacement.
A metal ball, made of a particular type of stainless steel, is used to replace the humeral ball, which is coupled to a titanium stem to maintain the ball attached to your arm, while a polyethylene cup replaces the glenoid socket.
The shoulder is a huge ball and socket joint, similar to the hip joint. It has a wider range of motion than any other joint in the body. Bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments make up the shoulder joint, which holds the shoulder in place and allows it to move. Clavicle (collar bone), Scapula (big flat triangular bone called shoulder blade), and Humerus are the bones that make up the shoulder joint (upper arm bone).
The acromioclavicular joint, or A.C. joint, joins the clavicle to your shoulder blade. The clavicle connects your shoulder to your rib cage and keeps it out of the way. The humerus, or upper arm bone, has a rounded head that sits against the socket in the shoulder blade.
A smooth substance called cartilage covers the surfaces of the bones where they touch, protecting them and allowing them to glide and move freely. Stability and support are provided by the muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder. The synovial membrane is a thin, smooth tissue that covers all remaining surfaces inside the shoulder joint. This membrane produces a small amount of fluid that lubricates your cartilage and reduces friction in your shoulder in a healthy shoulder.
The rotator cuff muscles are a set of four muscles that surround the shoulder joint and attach to the end of the arm bone by their tendons. The rotator cuff's job is to hold the ball and socket joint together and assist with movement. Patients endure pain, instability, and loss of function when the rotator cuff tendons rip. A rotator cuff tear can be caused by a fall in an elderly patient or an accident from a contact sport. Rotator cuff tears can be treated with physical therapy or an occasional cortisone injection, depending on the size and location of the tear, as well as the patient's age, duration of symptoms, overall health, range of motion, and desired level of activity. If these methods fail, surgery may be required.
The procedure will take about two hours. It will take longer for your family members because surgery will begin about an hour after you say your goodbyes, and it will take another one to two hours for you to fully awaken from general anesthesia and be able to see them again.
Shoulder replacement is usually done under general anesthesia.
Pain alleviation, greater range of motion, and enhanced function are all benefits of shoulder replacement.
Every surgery entails some level of risk. Like any other surgery, the risks associated with shoulder replacement surgery include infection, dislocation, injury to the nerves or problems related with prosthesis can happen.
The time it takes to recover varies from person to person and is also dependent on the type of surgery performed. On the first day after surgery, you should use your arm for waist-level activities. Within the first week, you should dress and eat yourself. Driving should be done with caution. Restart driving only when you're sure you can do it safely.
Yes, It's a major surgery that will require you to stay in the hospital for several days. After that, you'll need to go to physical therapy for many weeks.
Total shoulder replacement is a highly successful procedure with more than 90 percent success rate. Many patients recover exceptionally functioning shoulders and are able to resume normal daily activities and low-impact sports without pain.
Shoulder replacement patients typically range in age from 60 to 80 years old. However, our surgeons have done shoulder replacements on people as young as the mid-40s and as old as 88.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
