We receive a number of common questions from our patients about shoulder replacement surgeries. We’ve compiled some of them below. It’s important to note that most questions can’t be answered on a personal level without a consultation with a medical professional. The following is general advice only, written with the intention of providing you with resources on how to best gather information.
Total shoulder replacement recovery time and methods can vary slightly from partial shoulder replacement recovery. Recovery time for shoulder surgeries come down to multiple factors including reason for replacement, age, activity level, and any underlying conditions.
It’s best to discuss your concerns in person with an orthopaedic surgeon who provides shoulder replacement surgeries.
Shoulder replacement surgeries are commonly performed under General anaesthesia. Pain levels for recovery of a shoulder replacement vary between individuals. This is dependent on your shoulder reconstruction type, age, reason for surgery, and the success of the surgery.
Medical procedure costs are different across clinics. Costs of shoulder replacement procedures and surgeries factor in whether you are covered by a health fund, whether or not the surgery is elective, as well as other influences such as government support, age, and necessity. Choosing a private provider for your shoulder replacement surgery may be a more expensive choice, but it comes along with benefits such as the potential to significantly reduce wait times.
Finding a support network for procedures you have coming up, or operations you have undergone, can be a great way to share resources, ask questions, and make friends who have had similar experiences. Mayo Clinic and Bone Smart both have active shoulder replacement discussion groups where you can connect with other patients. If you’re a Facebook or Reddit user, it could be worth using the search function on these websites to find more shoulder replacement discussion groups near you.
