Shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is a surgical procedure that reconstructs the glenohumeral joint, which includes both the upper edge of the humerus and the glenoid. While shoulder joint replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as effective at relieving joint pain.
Each year, approximately 53,000 people in the United States undergo shoulder replacement surgery, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. In contrast, nearly 900,000 Americans undergo knee and hip replacement surgery each year. It primarily affects people over the age of 50, but it can also affect younger people.
