If conservative treatment options are ineffective, there are surgical procedures that can help. For a less invasive surgical option, a surgeon can make a small incision and access the arthritic shoulder and remove a small amount of tissue that is restricting movement.
In more severe cases, surgeons can perform a full or partial shoulder joint replacement if the shoulder joint has become more seriously damaged. In this procedure, the damaged portion of the shoulder will be completely removed and replaced with an artificial joint.
