Understand the Shoulder Replacement Procedure

Shoulder Replacement Surgery is performed when the shoulder pain doesn’t get treated by any of the conservative measures. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint in which the ball is the head of the humerus (arm) and the socket is the glenoid cavity in the scapular bone. In the surgery, an incision is made in the front of the shoulder and the bone is exposed. The head of the humerus is removed and is replaced with a press-fit metal implant. The other surface of the joint which is the shoulder bone (glenoid cavity) is shaved and made smooth to fix the plastic or polyethylene socket. Both implants are fixed and the incision is closed. 


There are three types of shoulder replacement surgeries – 

  • Partial Shoulder Replacement – In this surgery, only the head of the humerus is replaced and the glenoid cavity is kept as it is. It is done when the glenoid cavity is intact. 
  • Total Shoulder Replacement  – Both the joint surfaces are replaced by metal and plastic components.
  • Reverse Shoulder Replacement – In case of previous implant failure or chronic rotator cuff tear, reverse shoulder replacement surgery is performed. Both the surfaces are replaced but the ball and socket components are reversed. It gives better rehabilitation chances to severe arthritis patients.

Handling Rehabilitation after Shoulder Replacement


Physical therapy is an integral part of recovery after shoulder replacement surgery. After joint replacement, physiotherapy exercises are started to ensure early rehabilitation. After two days, the patient will be discharged from the hospital. 

The shoulder will be kept in a sling and only removed for exercises. The sling is removed after 2-3 weeks and further strengthening exercises are advised. The patient can join his/her desk job after 2 weeks or so. Physiotherapy is continued for 2 months and the normal range of motion and strength is achieved. The patient can live a pain-free normal life after that.
