If you have advanced shoulder arthritis, and nonsurgical treatments haven’t relieved your pain or you can no longer lift your arm to perform daily activities, your doctor may recommend shoulder replacement surgery. In this procedure, also called shoulder arthroplasty, the surgeon replaces all or part of your shoulder joint with a prosthetic one that restores your range of motion and your ability to function without pain.

Duke shoulder surgeons are experts in the different approaches to this surgery, as well as the different prosthetic devices used to replace the shoulder joint. Our goal is to educate you about your options and help you determine if shoulder arthroplasty is right for you.
