What is shoulder arthritis surgery?
When conservative treatment methods (rest, corticosteroid injection, physical therapy, NSAIDs, and activity modification) fail to alleviate pain in the arthritic shoulder, TSR may be recommended. There are a few different types of shoulder arthritis surgery that Dr. Williams may suggest depending on the type of injury and age of the patient. These may include:
- Shoulder debridement & synovectomy: Removal of loose bodies and inflamed tissue.
- Total shoulder replacement
Dr. Riley J. Williams, orthopedic shoulder surgeon, serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, New York City, NY and surrounding areas, has extensive experience performing total shoulder replacement and shoulder arthritis surgery.
