Learn about Shoulder Resurfacing Surgery
Shoulder Resurfacing surgery replaces the damaged or diseased part of the humerus head (also known as the ball) with a metal implant.
In shoulder replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the shoulder are removed and replaced with artificial components, called a prosthesis.
The treatment options are either replacement of just the head of the humerus bone (ball), or replacement of both the ball and the socket (glenoid).
