New Tornier Implants for total shoulder replacement

Although shoulder joint replacement surgery is less common than knee or hip replacements, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. Shoulder replacement surgery was first performed in the United States in the 1950s to treat severe shoulder fractures. Over the years, shoulder joint replacement has come to be used for many other painful conditions of the shoulder, such as different forms of arthritis.

Shoulder replacement surgery is highly technical. There are several different types of shoulder replacements; Hemiarthroplasty, Total Shoulder Replacement and Reverse Total Shoulder replacement. Dr. Wasserlauf will evaluate you and your specific situation, health history and goals before recommending a specific procedure type and choosing the appropriate implant.
