Shoulder arthroplasty, also called shoulder replacement surgery, is usually done only after more conservative treatments (such as physical therapy, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications) have failed. The surgery is done to replace the bones of the shoulder joint with artificial joint parts.
Advice & Tips:
The arthritic pain was gone immediately. The surgical pain diminished very quickly. I am in my 4th month of physical therapy and have almost full range of motion. I have some weakness still in that shoulder and arm which I am working on.
