When non-surgical treatments fail to adequately treat shoulder arthritis, an orthopedist may recommend shoulder replacement surgery. During surgery, the damaged surfaces of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with prosthetic parts typically made of durable plastic or metal.
At VITO, shoulder treatment options are available for patients with complex diagnosis. From minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques to total joint replacement to complicated fractures, Surgeons at VITO have the experience and training to expertly treat all shoulder related problems.
