The shoulder is a marvel of the human body. It’s a “ball-and-socket” joint, where the collarbone, the shoulder blade and the upper arm bone work in tandem to provide arm flexibility. A strong healthy shoulder is necessary for even the simplest movements. But repetitive movement can overstress the shoulder joints and result in tendon tears, instability, and fractures. When this happens, one of the remedies may be shoulder arthroplasty, a procedure that replaces shoulder bones with an artificial shoulder. In this program we will explore the delicate workings of the shoulder, educate viewers on shoulder arthroplasty, and hear from patients who have benefited from this procedure. (3103)
