There are various surgical options for shoulder replacements. Our doctors shall evaluate the patient and suggest the best method to perform the surgery. Listed a few of them below :
1. Total Shoulder Replacement:
This is one of the most common types of Shoulder Replacement Surgery suggested by the doctor. It involves replacing the arthritic joint surfaces with a highly polished metal ball attached to a stem, and a plastic socket. a metal ball that leans against a plastic ( polyethylene ) attachment. The objective of shoulder replacement is to expel the patient’s ligament humeral head, supplant it with the metal “ball” segment joined to a stem that stretches out down inside the patient’s humerus (upper arm bone), and after that place a plastic attachment over the outside of the patient’s very own glenoid
The polyethylene attachment is regularly solidified deep down encompassing it, at any rate to a limited extent, so obsession deep down is quick. The prosthetic ball has a stem that is generally set inside the humerus.
2. Partial Shoulder Replacement
a.k.a Stemmed Hemiarthroplasty: The doctor may replace only the ball depending upon the diagnosis conducted. This procedure is called a stemmed hemiarthroplasty. In a traditional stemmed hemiarthroplasty, the head of the humerus is replaced with a metal ball and stem, similar to the procedure done in total shoulder replacement.
The doctor may recommend this option when it is found that humeral head is severely fractured but the socket is not damaged or harmed.
3. Reverse shoulder replacement
a.k.a Resurfacing Hemiarthroplasty: The doctor may recommend this if you have a torn rotator cuff. It’s also conducted in a case when another shoulder replacement surgery didn’t work well for the patient. In this surgery, the metal ball is attached to your shoulder bones, and a socket is implanted at the top of your arm.
For patients who are young or very active, resurfacing hemiarthroplasty avoids the risks of component wear-tear and loosening that may occur with the above two mentioned shoulder replacements in this patient population. Due to its more conservative nature, resurfacing hemiarthroplasty may be easier to convert to total shoulder replacement, if necessary at a later time. The patient can have better moments of the arm with the help of this procedure due to its nature of working.
