Hemi/Total Shoulder Replacement

Hemi/Total Shoulder Replacement

A partial shoulder replacement, also known as a shoulder hemiarthroplasty, is a surgical technique in which the glenoid or socket, which makes up the other half of the shoulder joint, is preserved while the upper bone in the arm (the humerus) is replaced with a prosthetic metal implant.

To relieve discomfort and restore range of motion and mobility, a complete shoulder replacement, sometimes referred to as a total shoulder arthroplasty, involves removing some of the shoulder joint and replacing it with artificial implants. It is quite effective in relieving the severe pain and stiffness brought on by advanced arthritis.

Typically, it takes six months for a shoulder hemiarthroplasty patient to fully recover. Throughout this time, you will need to check up with your doctor multiple times. Your shoulder will be immobilised with a cast for the first few weeks following surgery.
