How common are shoulder replacements?

Hi there,

Nowadays, total shoulder replacement is becoming a common procedure with severe arthritic damage of the joint.

When medical therapy fails including steroid injections, then total shoulder replacement should be considered.

The success rate is high atleast 72% or above.

There is significant improvement in pain, movement and quality of life.

Hence, that should be a good option for you.

It was my pleasure to help you today. Dr Basu
