Total Shoulder Replacement
Over time, you may begin to experience extreme shoulder pain or weakness in your shoulder. If your shoulder pain or arthritis can’t be eased by other methods, it may be time to talk to an expert about considering total shoulder replacement surgery. Shoulder replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure that removes diseased or damaged bone in the shoulder and replaces it with an artificial joint.
Henry Community Health’s Dr. Damion Harris is specially trained to perform such procedures.
During total shoulder replacement surgery, the arthritic humerus ball is replaced by a smooth metal ball fixed to the arm bone (humerus) by a stem that fits within it, allowing the deltoid to move to the shoulder and enabling patients with pseudoparalysis to once again move their arms.
Total shoulder replacement surgery is an effective way to relieve pain and help you get back to your daily activities. The decision to have total shoulder replacement isn’t an easy one but discussing your options with an expert is easier than you think. Find out what options are available for you and get back to enjoying life. Contact Dr. Harris to see if total shoulder replacement is an option for you.
