Resurfacing Shoulder Replacement Treatment

A small incision is made and the arthritic shoulder joint is exposed. The arthritic areas are scraped away or removed and covered with an implant. The glenoid, or opposite side, sometimes is also treated with a “graft jacket” to cover it and protect it from continued wear. This surgery is generally done as an outpatient procedure with little to no blood loss. Patients may expect to be back at work performing light duties within a week. More healing is required before heavy lifting, or sports activities are to be attempted.
