Richard J. Friedman, MD
Total shoulder arthroplasty represents a unique challenge to the orthopaedic surgeon because of the nature of the joint itself and technical considerations for the soft tissues. Although fewer procedures are done than for other major joints, there is growing interest in glenohumeral joint replacement as a viable treatment for diseases and fractures of the shoulder.
Dr. Friedman demonstrates the exposure and key surgical techniques. In a surgical case study, he also explains selection of glenoid and humeral prosthetic components that best suit individual patient anatomy.
Considerations for patient selection, preoperative radiographic assessment and postoperative rehabilitation are presented as well.
