Shoulder Replacement Surgery

USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Shoulder replacement surgery is recommended when arthritis in the shoulder has worn away the cartilage, causing bones to painfully rub together.

The procedure involves removing the ends of damaged bones at the upper arm and shoulder and replacing them with prosthetic components that are cemented securely in place. Advanced pain protocols have transformed the recovery from this procedure. Patients return to activity within a couple of months after surgery.
