Shoulder Replacement Surgery


Our price: $ 18,000 USD

The shoulder is formed by a ball and socket joint. The ball at the top of the upper arm would normally move smoothly in the socket of the shoulder blade (scapula) on a lining of cartilage. This cartilage stops the bones from rubbing on one another. If the cartilage is damaged through arthritis or an injury, it can make the joint painful and stiff. A new shoulder joint may increase mobility and reduce your pain.
