Advancements in Healthcare Featuring Dr. Anthony Romeo – Part Six

November 13, 2017

On the final segment of Advancements in Healthcare, Dr. Anthony Romeo discusses shoulder replacement surgery in an outpatient setting, and the advancements made to this operation over the years. The biggest change made over the last twenty years to shoulder replacement surgery is that initially, the bone would be cut in a way where the implant fits into the shoulder; however, now the arthritis is taken out and the implant is matched or molded to the shape of the patient’s bone. This has made a huge difference in terms of pain relief, range of motion, and recovery time. As shoulder replacements have become more common, it is beneficial to learn about this process and the steps to take after surgery to regain full strength and return to a healthy pain free lifestyle.
