Orthopaedic surgeon Edward McFarland, M.D., director of the Division of Shoulder Surgery, talks about shoulder dislocation and subluxation (partial dislocation). He discusses common causes of these shoulder injuries, how they can be treated and what you can expect during recovery. Dr. McFarland also addresses the risk of redislocation after the surgery and who is most likely to experience it.
Total Shoulder Replacement and Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement
Total shoulder replacement is a complex procedure that involves replacing the shoulder joint with artificial parts. It is important to have an experienced physician perform your shoulder replacement.
Our physicians have done numerous shoulder replacements, including primary (first-time) procedures and revision shoulder replacements after a prior unsuccessful surgery. Reverse total shoulder replacement is one of the procedures our specialists are skilled at and have performed on more than 500 patients over the last decade.
