Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Orthopedic surgeons routinely perform shoulder joint replacements at Providence St. Peter Hospital, Olympia Total Joint Center. Though less common than hip or knee replacement, shoulder joint replacement is a very effective treatment to alleviate pain and improve limited range of motion related to arthritis or injury to the shoulder.

Surgery is usually only considered after a person has tried medications and lifestyle modification but decides with the doctor that they have not achieved sufficient symptom relief.
