Thank you for restoring my "quality of life." My hip feels as good as the other one, I was born with and that's because I had a good surgeon.
Expert Shoulder Joint Replacement Baltimore Maryland
Shoulder replacement surgery is typically very successful at restoring full motion and relieving pain associated with common injuries and arthritis. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the human body, therefore it is one of the most frequent locations that arthritis can become a debilitating problem. Patients often have problems carrying out typical activities such as putting on clothes, using utensils and combing their hair. No matter what caused the problems with your shoulder, shoulder replacement can be very effective in eliminating pain and restoring function.
The shoulder is replaced with a metal substitute and padding. The ball shaped end of the upper arm bone will be removed and replaced with a smooth metal substitute with a stem that inserts into the arm bone. Then the socket of the shoulder will be cleaned, smoothed and widene. Padding will be put into place to create a surface for the newly installed ball to operate against. This creates a smoothly functioning joint that does not hurt. The natural tendons and muscles are left in place to allow the joint to function smoothly.
