Dr. Jawa believes that transparency empowers patients and their families to make informed decisions about their treatment. With a primary total shoulder replacement, the ball (humeral head) of the shoulder joint is replaced with an implant that includes a stem with a smooth, rounded metal head. The socket (glenoid) is replaced with a smooth, rounded plastic cup that fits the head of the ball perfectly. A revision shoulder replacement may be indicated when a former shoulder procedure no longer works. A careful and thorough physical examination will be administered to determine the best course of action for your shoulder condition.

Our esteemed team of doctors, physicians assistants, rehabilitation experts, and acupuncturist all share a common goal: to treat each patient respectfully and to provide optimum care. Our Boston shoulder replacement surgeon is a gifted clinician who has great success in treating shoulder conditions and performing total shoulder replacement.

When you are considering total shoulder replacement, BSSC offers expert care. The shoulder joint is ball-and-socket joint made up of two articulations: the glenohumeral joint (where the head of the humerus – arm bone – meets the scapula) and the acromioclavicular joint (where the shoulder blade meets the collar bone). Normal wear and tear or an injury to the head of the humerus often results in shoulder arthritis. Although total shoulder replacement surgery is not as common as hip or knee replacement, the arthritic surface of the ball is replaced with a metal ball. A stem is press fitted in the inside of the arm bone and the socket is resurfaced with a high density polyethylene component. After a general or regional anesthetic, this procedure is performed through an incision between the deltoid and the pectoralis major muscles on the front of the shoulder. It includes release of adhesions and contractures and removal of bone spurs that may inhibit full range of motion or make movements painful. Our Boston shoulder surgery team can perform this procedure in less than two hours. Our post-op follow-up includes rehabilitative exercises to restore strength and full function to your shoulder.
