The main source of shoulder pain, shoulder arthritis, is first managed in early stages with physical therapy and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs. Surgery is considered only if the pain worsens. There are two primary methods for shoulder replacement. Total shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement. Total shoulder replacement involves a prosthetic replacement of the ball and socket joint. A metal ball is used to replace the humeral head and a plastic socket replaces the cartilage on the glenoid cavity. Reverse shoulder replacement is used to treat patients with severe cases. It involves the insertion of a hemispherical implant in place of the glenoids instead of the humerus and a cup section being added to the humerus. All Island Orthopedics in Astoria and Bayside, are specializing in shoulder and knee surgeries. If you feel pain in your joints, please schedule an appointment with us in order for us to provide a diagnosis.
