COMG physicians are highly trained in the most advanced shoulder replacement techniques
The term arthritis literally means inflammation of a joint but is generally used to describe any condition in which there is damage to the cartilage. Damage of the cartilage in the shoulder joint causes shoulder arthritis. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury. The warning signs that inflammation presents are redness, swelling, heat, and pain.
Shoulder Joint Replacement
Arthritis of the shoulder can cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joint. The condition is treated by removing the damaged articulating parts and replacing them with prostheses.
Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement
Individuals with rotator cuff tear arthropathy (occurrence of shoulder arthritis and rotator cuff tear), a fully torn rotator cuff that is difficult to repair or prior failed shoulder replacement are candidates for reverse shoulder replacement.
