Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty is most commonly performed on patients suffering from extreme arthritis to restore function to the shoulder. The surgery replaces damaged bone and cartilage with artificial components; usually, a plastic cup is fitted into the shoulder socket and a metal ball is attached to the top of the upper arm bone. This type of shoulder replacement mimics the original ball-and-socket anatomy of the shoulder, using the rotator cuff muscles to function.

Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty can restore comfort and function to an arthritic shoulder. By recreating the anatomy, the result is not just restoration of function, but better durability.Schedule an Appointment
