Understanding Total Shoulder Replacement: A Patient Guide

Patients with severe shoulder arthritis are unable to move their arms through the full range of motion and consequently are unable to perform many activities of daily living. For these patients, total shoulder replacement is a proven surgical procedure relieving their pain, recovering their range of motion and allowing them to return to their active lifestyles.

In this video, Dr JP Warner from the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, goes through the necessary examination and the surgical technique. He also points out that in 98% of the patients this is a very successful, proven procedure.

    I Know That It Is No Party In Having This Procedure But YOU Will See How Much Better YOU Will Feel After This Operation Is Completed. I Myself Know As I Have Had Both Complete Knees Replaced Plus My Left Shoulder Replaced Like YOU Will Have PLUS I Am Still Waiting To Have My Right HIP Replaced…… YOU Will See How Much Better YOU Will Feel After All Is Done.
