Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Shoulder replacement surgery is a surgical procedure done to remove the damaged areas of the shoulder and replacing them with artificial or man-made joints called a prosthesis. It is commonly known as shoulder joint replacement surgery.
The treatment options are either to replace only the head of the humerus bone, or replacement of both the ball as well as the socket.
We, at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, have one of the best orthopedic teams in Hyderabad who have years of experience in successfully treating patients with shoulder related problems and giving them the best suitable treatment making us one of the top hospitals in India.

- Rotator Cuff Repairs: It is a procedure to operate the damaged part of the rotator cuff and to clean and reattach any torn or damaged tendons present in the shoulder.
