Total Shoulder Arthroplasty


Dr. Evan Flatow performs a left shoulder replacement in a 58-year-old woman with glenohumeral osteoarthritis. The patient has loss of the joint surfaces with bone-on-bone touching and osteophytes, but the rotator cuff is intact. Therefore, an unconstrained shoulder arthroplasty is performed. Cemented glenoid and humeral components are used.
