For patients facing end-stage arthritis, our team implements the latest advances in joint replacement surgery to restore and improve function for patients with a severely degraded range of motion, mobility, and pain.
Through the intervention of our Shoulder Replacement Specialists, pain-free everyday activities like walking, tennis, gardening, golf, and playing with children are restored to patients who have had to limit or cease these activities as a result of the chronic and debilitating effects of their conditions.
The shoulder replacement team considers a patient’s ability to tolerate the rigors of joint replacement. This includes assessing existing limitations, evaluating and diagnosing the degree and type of disease or degenerative process, evaluating the level of pain being experienced, and conducting a thorough discussion with patients concerning the surgical options available and rehabilitation.
Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jennings and his highly- trained team at Texas Knee and Sports specialize in performing Total Shoulder Replacement.
A total shoulder replacement is performed on patients who have an extensive amount of damage to their articular cartilage. This procedure removes the damage cartilage and replaces it with durable prosthetic parts. This procedure is performed in 3 steps:
- The humerus head is removed and replaced: once the “ball” section of the upper arm bone is removed, a metal stem is attached.
- A round metal ball is attached to the metal stem: a smooth metal ball is placed on top of the newly inserted metal stem.
- Cartilage is removed from the arm socket: the damaged cartilage is removed from the socket and replaced by a smooth artificial socket.
