Evolution of Shoulder Osteoarthritis Surgery

There exist a wide variety of treatment options for shoulder osteoarthritis. Conservative measures can be used such as physical therapy and corticosteroid injections into the glenohumeral joint. However, because cartilage does not regenerate, neither of these options truly addresses the arthritic changes of the shoulder joint.

Partial shoulder replacements and total shoulder replacements are options that involve replacing part of the shoulder joint or replacing it entirely with metal components.
