This is the second most common type of shoulder replacement procedure.

Your doctor will reach your shoulder joint by making a cut, either down the front or the side of your shoulder. They will then replace the ball at the top of your upper arm with a new metal ball. They’ll also replace the socket in your shoulder blade with a new socket.

These replacements mimic the original structure of your shoulder. After the procedure, your doctor will close the cut with stitches or clips and cover your wound with a dressing.

The procedure takes between one and two and a half hours and you’ll either be under local or general anaesthetic.
