Joint Replacement For Shoulders

Ralph Haller, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with Everett Bone and Joint, talks about total shoulder joint replacement as an option given to patients who suffer from shoulder joint pain, rotator cuff disease and shoulder arthritis. Although shoulder joint replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. The implants are designed to create a new, smoothly functioning joint that can prevent painful bone-on-bone contact.
