It is performed under General Anaesthesia. The procedure usually takes 1-3 hours.

  • An incision is made over the shoulder joint to open up the area.
  • After this the surgeon will remove the head (top) of the upper arm bone (humerus).
  • After this he will cement the new metal head and stem into place & smooth the surface of the old socket and cement the new one in place.
  • Incision is then closed with staples or sutures.
  • In the end a dressing (bandage) is placed over the wound.


Patient will have to stay in the hospital for 4 to 6 days after the surgery. Complete recovery can take 4 to 6 months. A new shoulder can last up to 10 years
