Shoulder Arthroplasty

Session 09Shoulder Arthroplasty

 Shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is a procedure that restores the glenohumeral joint to its original state, which includes both the upper edge of the humerus and the glenoid. While shoulder joint replacement is not as common as knee or hip replacement, it is equally effective in relieving joint discomfort.

 According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, about 53,000 people in the United States receive shoulder replacement surgery each year. In comparison, almost 900,000 Americans get knee and hip replacement surgery each year. It primarily affects those over the age of 50, but younger people can also be affected.
