Shoulder Replacement
We were recommended to Dr. Mendoza by Dr. Torres in Mazatlan as a highly skilled and meticulous surgeon. I had waited in pain for close to 3years in Canada for treatment ; The surgery was completed 2 days after arriving in Guadalajara. The surgery was perfect and there were no significant pain levels. The follow up after surgery items ei. walker, ambulance trip back to our hotel, and daily visit by the physiotherapist were all organized by Dr. Mendoza's professional staff. This is medical care at its best and incredible value for the price. I see a golf course in my future.

Due to osteoarthritis I needed a total hip replacement. As a USA resident who travels extensively for work I looked all over Latin America and Europe. However I wanted a specific style of hip replacement. This was offered by Dr Mendoza, from the beginning contact with Lori it was a very professional experience. I spent a month in guadalajara and could not have been happier with the outcome. If I ever have to have the other done I know where I am going. Thanks again for all the great work Rob Jones

Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

Nas djecak Hamza je bio bezbrizan i kao vecina djece igrao je fudbal sa drugarima. Nazalost jedan dan je dosao sa povredom i tada je sve krenulo naopako. Vodili smo ga u bolnicu u Sarajevo i rekli su nam da oni ne smiju izvesti tu operaciju, na vrhuncu ocaja smo saznali za Romoy. Imam samo rijeci hvale za njih, ni jedne sekunde nas nisu ostavili same i pruzili su nam neogranicenu podrsku. Zahvaljujuci vama nas Hamza opet bezbrizno trckara sa drugarima. Hvala Vam !

What is Shoulder Replacement Surgery?

The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and trauma related arthritis. The shoulder joint consists of three bones - the scapula (shoulder blade), clavicle (collar bone) and humerus (upper arm bone).

 

Shoulder arthritis may be treated with exercise, however even with exercise the pain is likely to persist and can lead to a rotator cuff tear, a condition that is extremely painful. Function of the shoulder is permanently lost due to the tear of the rotator cuff tendons at the surface of the shoulder joint.

 

At this point, finding a good orthopedic surgeon who specializes in shoulder replacement surgery with a cuff tear arthropathy (CTA) is your best option. The best treatment for shoulder arthritis when the rotator cuff is intact is total shoulder replacement.

 

Shoulder replacement is less common than knee replacement or hip replacement, but it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. Shoulder replacement surgery was originally used to treat severe shoulder fractures, however now its main indication is for shoulder joint relief due to arthritis.

 

Arthritis affects the cartilage in the joints. Severe shoulder arthritis is when the cartilage in the shoulder joints has completely worn away from years of wear and tear, causing bone rubbing on bone.

 

Pain can be controlled on a short-term basis with medication, but it is not something one should consider as a lifetime solution. Eventually shoulder replacement should be undergone to relieve pain and allow maximum function and movement of the shoulder joint.

 

A Good Candidate for Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Patients who are older that have significant pain and little or no movement in their shoulder are the best candidates for shoulder replacement. This procedure is also ideal for patients with chronic, long-standing arthritis and rotator-cuff.

 

Shoulder Replacement Surgery Procedure

The technology and materials currently used in shoulder replacement surgery provides function to the shoulder joints just as a healthy joint would. Plastic and metal implants are used to replace the ball and socket joints of the shoulder.

 

Shoulder replacement surgery usually lasts about 2-3 hours. The patient is put on general anesthesia and will spend about one hour in the recovery room. The patient will be told not to eat or drink anything on the day of the surgery. X-rays and screenings will be taken either at your local doctor or they will be taken by the doctor prior to your surgery.
