Shoulder Joint Replacement
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we provide shoulder replacement surgery to repair and replace a shoulder joint that has been damaged or worn away by arthritis or injury.
Your shoulder is a one of the main joints in your body that you use on a daily basis. Nearly all of the movement in your arms will use this area which means that pain can cause severe discomfort to you in your daily life.
Having surgery to have a new shoulder joint will help improve the mobility of the arm and also help reduce pain.
At a consultation at Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Belfast, you will meet with one of our expert consultants who will be able to advise you if non-surgical options such as physiotherapy or joint injections may be an alternative treatment. Depending on the severity of the injury surgery may be a better option for offering long term pain relief to the area.
Each consultation is personalised to suit you but some of the areas that may be discussed include:
- Information about a shoulder replacement
- Alternatives to shoulder replacement
- Preparing for a shoulder replacement
- Information on what happens during a shoulder replacement
- What to expect afterwards
- Recovering from a shoulder replacement
- Risks of surgery
Our expert surgeons will be able to give you advice on which type of surgery you will need for your condition when you attend for an appointment.
