Shoulder Resurfacing

Shoulder Resurfacing is a surgical procedure which allows patients to retain much of their natural tissue, by replacing only the diseased part of the joint instead of the entire joint. This gradual approach to surgery means the patient may still be able to have a total joint replacement later if necessary.

THE OPERATION

The humerus head is separated from the shoulder and the damaged area removed. The head is then reshaped to fit the humerus implant.

The resurfacing component is then attached to the reshaped humerus and will act like the arm’s original head. Bone cement may be used to secure the implant.

AFTER SURGERY

Following surgery the arm is usually placed in a sling. Physiotherapy will then be needed to increase shoulder strength and regain range of motion.
