Shoulder replacement surgery is a huge operation and the price will vary considerably depending on where you want to get it done and the surgeon who will be performing the operation. It is always best to talk to your doctor and seek a professional medical opinion in matters such as these. If a hospital and the doctor have an excellent reputation then the price for the surgery will be considerably more than either an unknown hospital or a hospital or doctor with a bad reputation.
It is often arthritis or a degenerative disease that leads people to need should replacement surgery and the operation is usually hugely successful. The primary goal of shoulder replacement surgery is pain relief, with a secondary benefit of restoring motion, strength, and function. In shoulder replacement surgery, doctors replace the ends of the damaged upper arm bone and usually the shoulder bone or cap them with artificial surfaces lined with plastic or metal and plastic. Shoulder joint components may be held in place with cement. Or they may be made with material that allows new bone to grow into the joint component over time to hold it in place without cement.
There are much more simple treatments for shoulder arthritis that should be tried before considering shoulder replacement surgery. The shoulder is not a weight-bearing joint such as the knees and hips so many patients find that they can tolerate shoulder arthritis with some pain relief and basic treatments and modifications of their activities. Speak to a doctor or physiotherapists as they may be able to give you some exercises to help strengthen the shoulder or strengthen areas around it to ensure the shoulder does not cause too much pain. Anti-inflammatory drugs and joint supplements may also help.
