Anatomy

Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint: The ball, or head, of your upper arm bone fits into a shallow socket in your shoulder blade. This socket is called the glenoid

Description

Shoulder replacement surgery replaces the harmed piece of your shoulder. Here and there, just the ball is supplanted. Different occasions, both the ball and attachment are supplanted. The ball is typically metal and the attachment is generally plastic. Amid surgery, a cut is made in the front of the shoulder. When your specialist uncovered your shoulder joint, the specialist will expel the harmed bone and ligament. The leader of the humerus is then expelled so your humeral shaft can be set up for the addition of the metal stem and ball.

 

On account of an aggregate shoulder arthroplasty, the attachment (glenoid) bit of your shoulder will likewise be reemerged and supplanted to re-make the normal shapes of the bones in a sound shoulder. In situations where just the humeral head is supplanted, a hemiarthroplasty is performed. Both are possibilities for patients with agonizing and incapacitating shoulder joints.
