Shoulder Anatomy

Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle).

Your arm is kept in your shoulder socket by your rotator cuff. These muscles and tendons form a covering around the head of your upper arm bone and attach it to your shoulder blade.

There is a lubricating sac called a bursa between the rotator cuff and the bone on top of your shoulder (acromion). The bursa allows the rotator cuff tendons to glide freely when you move your arm.

Shoulder Joint Replacement Surgeries:

Total Shoulder Replacement

Total Shoulder Replacement involves replacing the damaged joint  with a metal ball attached to a stem, metal cup in the glenoid and an polyethylene insert

Partial Shoulder Replacement

In Partial Shoulder Replacement only humeral head is replaced with the prosthetic metal stem and a metal ball, the other half of the shoulder joint is left intact.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement

In a Reverse Shoulder Replacement, the socket and metal ball are switched. The metal ball is fixed to the socket and the plastic cup is fixed to the upper end of the humerus.

Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgeries:

Acromio-clavicular ( AC ) Joint Fixation
