Shoulder Plastic Surgery
Injuries to the shoulder can occur from a variety of reasons such as falls, car accidents, sports injuries or just wear and tear over the years. When these injuries are severe enough to affect the quality of life, many patients choose to undergo surgery to relieve their pain and restore function.어깨필러시술
Shoulder plastic surgery can directly replace the damaged parts of the shoulder and offer pain relief and improved mobility. However, as with any procedure there are risks associated with shoulder replacement surgery and they should be reviewed carefully before a decision is made to go ahead with the surgery.
Before the surgery starts, the surgeon will take X-rays of your shoulder to assess the damage and make sure that you are fit for the operation. This is particularly important for people with poor general health who may have a hard time tolerating the stress of surgery, anesthesia and recovery. Your doctor will discuss your options and recommend the best approach for you.
Most people who undergo shoulder replacement surgery are able to return to work within two months of their surgery and can resume most activities such as household chores, driving, swimming, golf and tennis. Those who do highly demanding jobs with heavy lifting or repetitive overhead activity will need to consult their surgeon to determine an appropriate time frame to return to work.
During the shoulder replacement procedure, your arm will be placed into a sling for 2-4 weeks and you will be given pain medications to manage your discomfort. You will then begin physical therapy which is vital to help ease stiffness, regain motion and rebuild strength in your shoulder. The surgeon will usually give you a range of movement goal to aim for.
The most common type of shoulder replacement is a total shoulder joint replacement. This uses metal and plastic replacement parts to repair the shoulder joint. This involves surgically removing the head of your upper arm bone (humerus) and removing and smoothing the socket in the shoulder blade (glenoid fossa). A plastic piece called a glenoid component is then inserted into the reshaped socket, and held in place with a metal stem that goes into the humeral bone.
Before the final components are inserted, your doctor will use trial implants to find out which size and shape of implant is best for you. This is done to ensure that the new joints are stable, comfortable and have the correct range of movement.
Some surgeons also perform a rotator cuff repair surgery during this same operation, but it is typically only done for those with severe rotator cuff tears and whose pain and symptoms cannot be managed with nonsurgical treatments. This is typically done through the arthroscopic technique and can be performed at the same time as a shoulder replacement. During this surgery, your surgeon will remove any bone spurs from the undersurface of the shoulder socket roof (called the acromion) which could irritate the repaired rotator cuff and cause pain.닥터케빈의원
