Total Shoulder Replacement

With total shoulder replacement, your surgeon will remove the joint surfaces and will replace them with a socket made of plastic, and a metal ball on a long stem (the humeral component)..If your bones are soft or weak, your surgeon will probably cement the implants in place. If your bones are healthy beyond the joint, your surgeon might use a non-cemented press-fit technique to fit the humeral component.
