Severe shoulder arthritis and chronic shoulder pain can make daily-life activities, like combing hair, reaching for a lamp or putting on a sweater extremely difficult. If you can’t do the simple things you once did, you may be suffering from a shoulder condition. There are reliable solutions for chronic shoulder pain. It is important to learn about your options in order to make the best decision for you.
When conservative treatments like physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications no longer are helpful, total shoulder replacement may be the best option. In the last 25 years, shoulder replacements have been used by a select group of orthopedic surgeons to help their patients restore mobility and stop pain. ONS Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Seth Miller began doing shoulder replacements 20 years ago at Greenwich Hospital. He was among the first surgeons outside New York City to offer the procedure. Along with Dr. Paul Sethi, he has performed over 1,500 shoulder replacements since then.
