Is Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgery for you?
Shoulder pain can be a result of inflammation, an injury or even arthritis. Arthritis is the "wear and tear" of the joint over the years. The shoulder joint could be replaced with an artificial joint to help with the pain from arthritis. Shoulder joint replacement surgery is not as common as hip or knee joint replacement but does help alleviate the pain.
