Shoulder Replacement in Bangladesh
In patients with end-stage shoulder arthritis and, in some cases, after a serious shoulder injury, total shoulder replacement is a highly effective treatment for reducing pain and restoring mobility. Shoulder replacement surgery relieves pain while also restoring shoulder motion, strength, and function. 95 percent of patients have pain-free function one year after surgery, allowing them and exercise the shoulder to regain strength and motion. The majority of patients are able to resume golf or tennis, swimming, yoga or pilates, and other physical activities that they had stopped due to shoulder pain.
Shoulder replacement surgery can be divided into three categories:
The most popular form of shoulder replacement is total shoulder replacement. It substitutes a metal ball for the ball at the top of your humerus, which is connected to the remaining bone. A new plastic surface is applied to the socket.
Only the ball of the shoulder is replaced in partial shoulder replacement.
If you have a torn rotator cuff, you will need a reverse shoulder replacement. It’s also used when a previous shoulder replacement operation has failed. A socket is inserted at the top of your spine, and the metal ball is fixed to your shoulder bones.
