The top three conditions that lead to Shoulder Arthroplasty are:
- Systemic diseases; arthritis causes degenerative changes to the joint
- Severe trauma; shattered bone that cannot be restored
- Degeneration of the joint; wear and tear that over time causes damage
There most common types of ‘inflammatory arthritis’ include Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Post-Traumatic Arthritis. Arthritis can develop in any joint of the body and the symptoms include pain, inflammation and stiffness.
What to consider
Patients who have undergone arthroplasty have major pain improvement. They can perform activities comfortably, such as reaching into a closet, dressing, washing and even sports. This treatment is recommended when non-surgical methods fail. Arthroplasty can lead to a better quality of living.
Arthroplastic treatment is performed at Ygia Polyclinic Private Hospital by Dr. med. Stephen Josephides.
