What Does A Total Shoulder Replacement Surgery Entail?
A total shoulder replacement surgery – also known as shoulder arthroplasty, involves replacing a damaged, broken, or immobile joint with an artificial one made from a combination of metal and plastic. While there is a brief recovery period, the procedure is highly effective in reducing pain, swelling, inflammation, and arthritis. Moreover, it’s also associated with a reduced risk for post-surgical complications than it’s arthroplasty counterparts, knee and hip replacements. There’s a reason for why 99% of people who undergo the procedure wish that they’d done it sooner – because it’s effective, it’s cheap, and it helps them feel better than they’ve ever felt! The Fears
Now, the fears are simple – many people fear that undergoing a total shoulder replacement surgery could be just too costly or too risky. Maybe it’ll put them out of work for too long, maybe the financial implications could leave you trapped in a repayment plan for far too long – but those fears are easily squashed. Shoulder arthroplasty is notably cheaper than knee and hip replacement surgeries – with some patients saving upwards of $5,000. And the recovery time is arguably faster than a knee or hip replacement surgery!
The writing is on the wall – if you’ve been experiencing shoulder pain, inflammation, joint pain, swelling, or immobility, it might be time for you to consider scheduling your shoulder surgery. With rates as low as they’ve ever been, 2020 is the year to fix your body to ensure that you can live your life on your own terms – comfortably.
