Am I a candidate for shoulder replacement surgery?
Good candidates for shoulder replacement are patients suffering from severe osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears or both. We recommend you to refer to one of the best orthopedic surgeons for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
What precautions can I take after surgery?
Your doctor will inform you of all precautions after the surgery is over, all depends on your specific needs. Keeping your arm in the sling close to your body, avoid using the arm to push yourself out of bed or a chair are some of the most common precautions.
How long is rehabilitation?
The success of the surgery goes along with how well the patient follows up the instructions after surgery. The orthopedist or physiotherapist will provide appropriate exercises that you can follow up at home or at a rehabilitation clinic.
