If nonsurgical treatments like medications and activity changes do not help in relieving pain, the ultimate choice is Shoulder Replacement Surgery. Joint replacement is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume everyday activities.
The shoulder is made up of three bones, the upper arm bone, shoulder blade, and the collarbone. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. The ball, or head, of the upper arm bone, fits into a shallow socket in the shoulder blade. In shoulder replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the shoulder are removed and replaced with artificial components, called a prosthesis. The treatment options are either replacement of just the head of the humerus bone (ball), or replacement of both the ball and the socket.
The estimated cost of Shoulder Replacement Surgery in India is USD 7,300 – USD 9,291. The estimated hospital stay is for five days and eight days outside the hospital. Shoulder Replacement Surgery has a success rate of more than 95%.
